I like Cuyamaca college! There is a very down to earth vibe here. They partner with their sister school Grossmont college to provide a wide array of classes and majors. The grounds are beautiful! I do wish they had more online classes or even fast track courses, but over all, it's a great deal and I'm happy.

I am currently going to Cuyamaca for Computer Engineering major. Cuyamaca's campus is small; yet it is very diverse. We have different clubs, great professors, and very friendly tutors. It is a great learning environment, where staff members and students work together to make the most out of the educational goal.
It's a surprisingly fantastic school. Teachers are all experienced and generally effective educators. There are significant free tools to help you learn and study, including tech help and a free, easily accessible tutoring center. Some of the students are highly motivated, some aren't. The ones who aren't motivated will drop. I've been quite impressed with the whole experience.
