We Asked Students, What's your overall opinion of this school?

Brandon

I love this school. The teachers are great.

Elianna

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.

Makena

A great start if one is still trying to figure out where to go. Of course you're always going to find some bad professors, some good, but overall most really take deep interest in one's learning, and they push you to strive when students can finally transfer to a four-year university. Campus scenery is lovely to look at, there are plenty of spaces to sit and talk with your peers. They also include a beautiful museum with interesting artifacts, and nursery classes where you can study the nature of plants, trees, stumps etc. There is always something interesting to discover at Cuyamaca College.

It is a great community college and I would recommend any STEM major students to go there, they have great professors. People there are welcoming and always smiling. Building structures are great and the environment is very safe and secure. I like being a Cuyamaca student because it is providing me with​ all the needs.

Sarah

As far as community college goes Cuyamaca is GREAT. The culture is laid back and welcoming, the professors are informational and really seem to care about their students. Don't even get me started on the Child Development Center, my step daughter attends the center and it is phenomenal. The staff as well as the students are hands on and so energetic when it comes to teaching the little ones. Overall, Cuyamaca is a great school that I would recommend to anyone.

Randy

It is a great campus that is covered in beautiful vegetative life. The campus may not be big, but the staff more than make up for the small campus size. I would highly recommend you bring a skateboard, as parking can get a bit hectic at times. It is just much easier to park deep, and skate up to your classes.

Katrina

The campus is huge but at least, in my opinion, everything is clearly labeled and there are plenty of maps around the campus and people can always get a map from the bookstore. The teachers are awesome, but at times it can be a little unclear about what they want or are expecting from the students and some can be a little slow to upload grades but overall they are great and I've had a great time in their classes even when they are hard and I really really want to Quite but they always make the classes interesting and thought-provoking.

savannah

There is not much other than go to go class and learn, which is all that I am there for. They have an amazing STEM center the science tutors that are available are very good. Every teacher that I have had at Cuyamaca is amazing and sweet. Although their on-campus food is terrible, there are options surrounding the area. The bathrooms are not as clean as they should be. The places to study seem more like a hang out joing than a nice study area.

Joseline

I really like the school. I started my first semester this summer and I absolutely feel welcomed and part of the community. I recommend anyone around El Cajon that plans to go to community college to attend Cuyamaca College.

Giovanni

I appreciate how clean and well kept the college is. Most students here are a little more serious than in other schools, and the campus is relatively quiet on the average day. I like the fact that it has a sister school (Grossmont College) that students can also take courses at. Teachers are very polite and helpful in both schools.

Mitchell

Cuyamaca College is a good college to go to if you are interested in pursuing a higher education, but you don't know exactly what you want to do. There are many opportunities for different types of classes. The fact that it is a Junior College means a lot of people will lose track of their education unless they have a strong will or goals. There are good counselors to help with your individual path, but its up to the individual student to find motivation to graduate.

Trinea

Cuyamaca College is a wonderful school that provides a very peaceful atmosphere for those wish to study in quite places. The teachers are very fun and very helpful when it comes to completing assignments and if you are struggling with your classes they ensure that the students will succeed and will provide students with opportunities such as tutoring and academic advising. Overall the campus is very beautiful and I would highly recommend future sudents to go this college.

Ajanai

My overall opinion is that Cuyamaca is a good school. Some teachers you can tell are here to really help you and make sure you benefit from the course you take. Other teachers just seem to be there for a check. Furthermore the campus is big and has a lot of majors and courses to choose from.

Joy

Do your research first! If you have a specific major choice it is best to look into all community colleges and see who offers the best program. There is no on-campus housing and the nearby area is pretty pricey. Get to know the people in the Financial Aid and Counseling office it's in your best interest.

Angel

A very amazing welcoming college. There's many opportunities and much to be involved in!

Maya

Cuyamaca College is a very good college to attend, this college has good professors willing to work with students. Along with education programs there are plenty of programs for students to succeed in life as their main priority. Cuyamaca has a very nice campus their is room for students to study everywhere and treat everyone nicely.

Hailey

My honest overall opinion of Cuyamaca College, located in Rancho San Diego east of downtown San Diego, is that the school is perfectly average. Very nice campus with lots of resources for students. Classroom sizes are pretty standard for campuses of similar size and academics could use a little work.
