Cuesta College is one of the top community colleges in California, located just outside of Beautiful San Luis Obispo, CA.

    Cuesta college is a beautiful junior college located on the central coast of California. The location could not be more perfect, people are friendly, and the staff has been great. This is the kind of campus where the teachers want you to succeed, they are willing to help, and most of them seem to have a real passion for teaching.

    It is an average 2 year school. The campus is alright but not the best, and there are not many extra curricular activities. There is not much social life or things going on at Cuesta, not many people seem to want to be there.

    Cuesta College has shaped the woman I have hoped to become. With small class sizes, a beautiful campus, and caring staff I've never felt more comfortable in a place of learning. I am going to miss Cuesta College.

    Cuesta College is a beautiful campus which offers a wide range of classes for students who are looking for a cheap option to complete their undergraduate course work. Both, teachers and students create a safe and fun learning environment for one another. The classes challenge you to put forth your best effort in order to prepare you to transfer to a four year university where you can then achieve a degree in your field of interest and pursue your career of choice.

    Cuesta is a great way to transition from high school to a university. The instructors are enthusiastic about what they teach, making up for the we're not in high school anymore mentality. As far as city colleges go, you're lucky to have this learning opportunity.

    A school that feels welcoming. Class options are very low for those with full time jobs, but there are a decent amount of Distance Education classes available. A great school!
