Student Success Festival
The goal of the Student Success Festival is to provide students with the opportunity to engage with campus services and academic programs. Previously delivered through tabling opportunities, this year the Student Success Festival offers students a three-day experience. Students have the opportunity to tune into a variety of presentations, workshops, and info sessions throughout this three-day festival. The Student Success Festival will take place from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM each day of the event.
The goal of the Student Success Festival is to welcome and connect students to the Cuesta community. We aim to support our students in achieving their best, whether it's a student's first or final year at Cuesta College.
