I was really impressed with Cuesta College as a student. The campus itself was very nice and always kept in good repair. I felt that Cuesta really took education seriously and did their best to give me a great education and prepare me for transfer to Cal Poly. They have a whole center at Cuesta that is devoted to helping students be better prepared for transfer to a 4 year university. They help you select the appropriate classes and give you a lot of pointers on how to make sure you get accepted to the university of your choice. I also attended Allan Hancock College for a short time and felt that Cuesta offers a much higher quality education for a community college.
