Student Testimonials


Faculty Testimonials

Susan Lloyd (Languages and Communication) - "My reentry students are a pleasure to teach.  They are engaged, enthusiastic and responsible.  They bring wisdom and life experience to our French classes.  They are great models for the younger students."

Matthew Fleming (English) - Over the past 17 years I have taught English at Cuesta to all different types of students. If there is one group of students who consistently improves my classes through their commitment, humility, and varied experiences, it would be my re-entry students.  Many of these students greatly underestimate their abilities, work extremely hard, and end up helping other students succeed.  I welcome all re-entry students to Cuesta and want them to know how much we value their courage and hard work.  They really make Cuesta a “community” college.
