Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

    I do enjoy being here just because of the fact that it is saving me bundles and bundles of money. There is a nice student cafe that I go to sometimes after classes to play pool or ping pong, and the campus is nice on the eyes. I also enjoy that students get the chance to speak with all of the professors, and the classes are very tight-knit.

    The best thing for me is that the school is right in the middle of a wonderful area and it has a beautiful campus. At the center of the campus there is a huge lawn with trees that makes for the great visual break from the classroom setting.

    I am enjoying Cuyamaca because I believe it is a school that even though it is new, has a lot of potential and great classmates. Like it is a smaller school, it is easier to make friends and to enjoy classes without being nervous of two hundred people watching you. Also, I really enjoy being around the teachers. They are always so polite and enthusiastic about teaching. Most of the teachers in Cuyamaca College really give themselves into teaching. You can tell they love teaching, and if you ask them if they would have preferred to study anything else, they tell you: if I would have the chance to live my life again, I would still be a teacher. I believe that when teachers love their job, they inspire their students, which helps them have a better understanding not only of the subject the teacher is teaching but of life.
