3.16 Average Rating
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.
Julia from Woodland Hills, 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.
