I have failed to get tutoring twice nowQuite BrightEnglish
I have failed to get tutoring twice now for one reason or another. Internet is useless and they consider this low priority to work on, qouating them. Teacher over classed too busy for in-depth help. Some amazing exceptions to the rule of course. Today since 9 am I have been in able to log into the network all day. This is average. Writing center is a joke offering no real help and goofing off. Opens later 9 am after most students are already do in class. Monday opens later as well, students ts are always sitting in the lobby waiting for it to open. I want to go someplace better.

I am so disappoint in this school IBrightEnglish
I am so disappoint in this school I was misled about all the help available to me when I signed up, and now have nothing that was promised. I qualified for EOPS, which offers extra tutoring and more, but now that school has started, I have access to none of these resources because it takes 5 months to process my one-page application. The writing center does not open until 10 am and tutors are unavailable during normal school hours. The library too, does not open until 9 am, when most classes have already began. Everyday there are 15 to 20 students who sit in the entryway to the library because there is no other quiet place to study, trying to get work done until the doors are opened and the assistant dean tells me the library and writing center hours were set up based on student need. That's bull. Counseling is a joke, and I had to return four times just to get an idea of how to select my major. There was one good counselor there Greg, the rest offered me no real help and had time limits of 20 mins. There is no help. every department you walk into is like a ghost town, and nothing gets accomplished. I am not returning next semester.

I went to Cuyamaca in the mid-1990s andNot so brightEnglish
I went to Cuyamaca in the mid-1990s and the place has radically changed physically. Back then the college had only one two-story building (the library); now the place is beginning to look like a pocket UCSD. Cuyamaca originally was a satellite campus of Grossmont College that focused on engineering and computer tech but now it is on the same level as Grossmont, functioning as a two-year liberal arts school. Like Grossmont it is a commuter school, and back in the 1990s there was nothing much around the campus but tract houses and chintzy stripmalls. The only major change is that there now a mall across from the college with a multiplex theater. I remember that if you didn't have a car and had to wait for pickup that you were stuck hanging around in the library or waiting by the bus-stop across from the "O" and "P" buildings (all of that has now been built over.) I get the feeling that the original single story classrooms that made up the campus are going to be torn down piecemeal and replaced with two-story buildings.I remember that the classes ranged from the somewhat challenging to the painfully easy; most of the tenured professors were ten years to retirement and a lot of the classes were taught by adjunct faculty (who shared a tiny office in "B" building that no longer exists.) Overall the school was there in the 1990s to prep people for SDSU and I think that still holds.
