I love the environment everyone there is friendly when you need help! There is also a nice scenic setting when walking to classes. However, I think their needs to be changes with what days the library is opened. Because it is only open From Monday to Thursday and not on Fridays.

Cuyamaca College is an amazing coolege with amazing programs especially with disabilities, this school has professors that work with their students, respectful staff and a very nice campus. Cuyamaca provides a lot whether it comes to studying, clubs, scholarships, many programs that are very useful its a college that's very suitable for anyone.
I like about Cuyama College the diversity there is, the amount of majors that they have and the different clubs, support programs and many other activities they have on campus.
Something I would like to see changed will be the interaction between counseling and college students, it will help a lot of students if they get inform about some help to have better grades, to raise their GPA, etc.
