3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't think my school is all that bad, I just know it wasn't my first, second or third choice. Most of the teachers I have had so far are pretty good, no bad experiences with teachers... yet. It doesn't help that I haven't made many friends, I live kind of far from school and commuting is extremely annoying, and not to mention I don't have enough money to live on campus or even move near campus. I am paying school out of pocket, and get no help from FAFSA so I get stressed about making good grades. I just wish i had more time to hang out on campus and meet people and network.

Overall Experience: I do not regret attending CSU East Bay! So far as a transfer student it has been a fun and different experience.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My experience has been relatively decent academically. The professors are helpful for the most part and know their stuff. The administration could do with some retraining since most of the time they are not helpful when you have an issue with classes or payments.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: the environment with students and staff members

Overall Experience: School begins for me in the fall but I have taken summer courses and I think the campus needs a little liveliness.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: So far my experience within the school has simply been alright, it seems overall pretty basic for me in correlation as to how much money they are asking from the families of the students. It kind of causes me to feel not so excited about even going yet overall I know I will make the best of it. The process for housing and other things seems moderately disorganized for me and my family and as of now my experience from it so far is not the best. Hopefully once I arrive on campus and acquaint myself with others this viewpoint will change, yet as of now, "it's okay".

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Great School and great loctaion

4 College Student

Overall Experience: My experience at this particular university was like my entire experience in high school in just a couple of days apart from living with totally different people than i am used to. Everyone that i met was super nice. The food was delicious and plenty of it. The campus is full of life. The services that my school provides for us is insane and kinda ridiculous because its all apart of our tuition.

Overall Experience: I wish the school had more school spirit when it comes to events but I love how helpful the professors are and the counselors are there when needed.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The teachers at this school are very helpful and really want students to learn the material. Teachers and counselors work with students in order for them to be successful.

Guys & Girls: We are a very diverse school so the type of girls and guys you see are all different and endless. The guy to girl ratio in this school is 4:6 so at any moment you always see more girls which is good. But because everyones basically a commuter its hard to socialize.

Health & Safety: Schools safe when it comes to health and safety. We don't allow parties on campus so our strictness to anything is there. There are resources out there. UPD are really helpful and are an ally to any issue and same with housing staff.

Greek Life: There are a few greeks and sororities. But theyre all cocky for no reason. They dont throw huge parties, they give back once in a while then they instagram it to show they are a loving community based frat, and etc. Wouldnt waste my time at a frat here. Go to a larger school where frat options are big and they have greek housing.

Athletics: No football team. The sports are alright. Not a huge crowd but a eh amount go. This school is a commuter school so most activities or events that happen will attract most of housing or a decent amount of commuters. Athletics are alright with each team respectively being competitive in their leagues.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It's expensive, Hayward is technically a bay area so the housing here is really expensive. Expect roughly $700-$1300 for a single apartment for one bedroom and one bath.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: Not a party school. I mean it. This school is a small little chat school with great education but parties are nonexistent here. We have frats and sororities but there are no parties. Everything cracks in San Jose, Berkeley, and San Francisco.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The schools located on a hill. Everything is at the bottom of the hill. Once you hit the bottom its a normal city. Expect normal fast foods and restaurants.

Administration: Kinda absent really. The police department have all new cars and yet they only have one car patrolling the housing parking lot. There was a threat of a school shooting this year and campus police just parked a police car outside the gym. The enforcement didn't increase. Really sad.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: A lot of paperwork as usual when it comes to financial aid. They take forever to process paperwork.

5 College Freshman

Campus Food: I put 5 stars because the fast food is great on campus. But the dining commons is horrible. They make great food when kids are on tour or its welcome day. But come back on a normal school day and you will realize why most kids dread eating there.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: No one is really social. Housing has a strict policy on guest. Anybody past 11pm on weekdays can't have guest over. Yes that means a friend from the next dormitory across from you. As freshman you live with 8 people. There is a small amount of double bed rooms for sophomores and up. So register for housing the first hour the contract opens up. I'm serious. Not a party scene in the dorms. Can't play loud music and no guest
