I really enjoy the school, there are lots of fun and energetic people all over campus and it makes it much easier to interact and ask people for help if I am lost. The people at the student store and book store are always helpful and nice. I am on the cross country/ track team and that really helped me meet new and fun people that are very welcoming. I encourage all to join a group on any campus!

Cuyamaca College is a beautiful college with great professors, staff and helpers. Majority of the students that attend this college are put together and have a goal that they are trying to achieve. By the looks of it, you can tell everyone is driven and are all here for a reason. Not to mention, I haven’t been given a reason to dislike this college. Classes are simple, easy, accessible and there are always educated staff or counselors available whenever we need. If you're thinking of attending Cuyamaca, I definitely recommend it.

Cuyamaca College is an unmatched school. The facilities are clean, up-to-date, and well-kept. The campus is beautifully designed and landscaped. The students are diverse and this makes for an enriching experience all around. Every professor I have had have been helpful and knowledgeable. There is an abundance of help available for students, from the counselors to tutors. I have had a wonderful time at this school. It is far superior to its sister college, Grossmont College, which I have also attended.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    I would tell myself to be prepared, and take time to have time. Don't rush things, or procrastinate. If you take the time to follow through and put one hundred percent into each assignment, then you'll have no problems. Taking notes will probably save you more than reading the textbooks, plus they give you something to put your mind to instead of falling asleep during lectures.

  7. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    Although it is a community college I feel that I am getting a much more personal experience than when I attended a large University. I have visited numerous campuses since middle school and this is the only one that I felt truly comfortable on. In my intro to college course the teacher really re-inspired me to step up and step out. At the university I attended I never felt the spark to attend. At Cuyamaca I am excited about learning every day!

    I wish that I had known that there will be people who do not always agree with you, but that still support you academically.

That college is not as difficult as it is made out to be, as long as one can apply themselves to their studies.
