I am very much enjoying the Cal State East Bay University experience. The students and professors are a mixture of diversities and all are accepted and respected. The vibe from the school is positive with music of all kinds playing in the fields, different types of delicious foods to pick from, many interesting classes and great weather. I love East Bay!
I was in the Art History program, but I hear that other majors had much better experiences than me. I had almost no support, and the only time the school reached out to me was for money, unpaid work, or surveys - so many surveys! I had a couple of really excellent professors, but two of them have just retired do to low pay and bad work environment. The school does have an EXCELLENT online program, I managed to take about 80% that way and saved a lot on travel.
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!
