    The arts department is amazing. The campus shows artwork of previous students in arts. Large statues in the field look like something out of a movie like "Beetle Juice" or "Alice in Wonderland". It is truly great and shows the talent Cabrillo students possess. The accessibility center is AMAZING! They can help those with learning disabilities receive accommodations with extra time for testing, special software for those with impaired vision, note takers, and even alternate media!

    Finish your first two years of college for pennies on the dollar. If you're strapped for cash, look into federal aid and the Board of Governor's Grants and work study.
