3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Its not like San Francisco but its good enough

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Csu east bay it's a beautiful campus but I feel that it needs more life. I find myself lonely when I walk around the campus and no one is outside hanging around. Students are either to busy studying or theybare not involve in school.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of great places to eat and there is an okay shopping mall nearby. I commute to Hayward, so I don't really know much about the town, but it's located in a great spot to easily travel to places with a lot to do.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: the atmosphere around the school is great. There is lots of things to do, there is nearby places that one can go to for attractions. It is also near san Francisco, there is always fun things to do in that city.

2 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: There are very few things to do in Hayward. Once you leave the city though you are connected to many vibrant places such as Berkeley and San Francisco where museums, shopping, sports, and friendly individuals are prevalent.
