Student Comments

"Cuyamaca College's Graphic Design Program has thoroughly provided me with a solid foundation of the essential programs, tools, and fundamentals to be a successful designer. In addition, the school has helped me immensely with the many projects that are assigned at SDSU. If it were not for Cuyamaca's outstanding design program, I would find myself struggling with many skills and principals that are absolutely crucial to learning the basics of design. I love this school for its beautiful atmosphere, access to wonderful design labs, and knowledgeable teachers who have a passion for the subject as well."
