This is a commuter school. the area is very congested and people typically keep to themselves. There are not many clubs to be involved in and it is hard to make connections with other students. The campus is an urban setting, but it is very difficult to find parking and actually get on campus. The teachers and education are very proficient and the tuition for In-State residents is very convenient and manageable. Being in the Bay Area, the student life is very diverse!
Review California State University - East Bay
Great experience here! They built the raw center (gym) with jamba juice located just right inside. I loved the different food options they have available like Taco bell, pizza hut, subway, and panda express. The professors that I have dealt with are really helpful and they really care about their student. My favorite place to go was the library; its quiet and allows free computer usage.
I like the online program. I like the open University option because it gives you the opportunity to continue your education. The only bad thing about open University is that you start the class one week after the rest of the students. I like how the modules are divided and the blogs posts allows for discussion. Taken online classes online for me has been the best option because I work full time. I enjoy interacting with the students online and receiving feedback. I always learn something new everyday!
