Off-Campus Housing: I love renting out of campus because I have more freedom and less drama with roommates.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Its okay but most of the places I have went to eat have rude employees that make me not want to go back.

3 Recent Alumnus

Administration: They are very strict in how long people stay over and if you ever break the rule they do punish you.

2 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I received a scholarship and the financial aid office took a long time to process it so I ended up getting dropped from my classes. It was a hassle because it was not my fault that the office did not do their job quick.

Campus Food: I was able to go into the dining area and choose for myself what I wanted to eat and how much. There were days when I felt like there where not many options in healthy foods. I love salad and the lettuce would not look appetizing to eat. I would rather eat at Panda or somewhere else with a little more variety.

Campus Housing: The dorms are very nice and big. I shared a room with only one other person, but shared my dorm with 4 other girls. It made me feel like I was really experiencing the college life where I was becoming an independent person.

3 College Senior

Administration: needs to become smoke free

1 College Senior

Campus Housing: Having to share a room and paying full price

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: When you need help, there will be both friendly and not so friendly people at the desk. Financial aid lines are always long the last weeks and the first weeks of the quarter, so get your stuff done on time.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: There aren't that many healthy options, but food prices can very from very cheap to a decent amount for the fast food options on campus. Bringing your own lunch would be wise.

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus.

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is great if you can find an apartment close by for rent. A lot of the availability depends on the time an individual looks for housing. It is very safe off campus as well depending on the area.

Off-Campus Dining: The city of Hayward has way too many fast food spots. Everything that is close to campus is a fast food spot. Not too many places offer discounts for students.

3 Recent Alumnus

Administration: The on campus police do a great job. They are really cool to chat with, and very willing to help out the students. They are very strict in the dorms as far as underage drinking, violence and drugs but these are the things that effect students, so it is important for them to be strict on those situations.

Party Scene: Csu East Bay definitely does not have a party seen. Besides the parties they have on campus once a year, students should not expect any exciting parties on campus. San Jose State has fun parties though, or if someone decides to throw a house party, those are usually fun.

4 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: Besides the long lines and the process in how long the aid is disbursed, financial aid has been great.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: The dinning commons needs a lot of improvements. They should switch up the meals more often, with the same options everyday people get tired of the same food. The commons also need more veggie options as well. The food taste really plain. The amount of flex dollars should be higher, because the fast food options are usually better than the dining commons. I think a good burger place on campus would be very useful. Some of the best places to go are pizza hut and Einstein Bros.

4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The environment at the East Bay dorms are great. Perfect sense of community. The students are friendly and outgoing. The resident Assistants host programs all year long in order to build a sense of community within the dorms. They create fun activities that students can relate too. They even bring free snacks which is always a great way to bring people out. At these programs students are able to socialize.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: My major required and internship in the final year, which was great because it lead to my first job in my field.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The quarter system is the best! You don't burn out before finals and you retain the information so much better.

2 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: There isn't much to do in Hayward. There are also are parts that are not the safest. From what I've seen, most of the city is pretty run down.

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Well... I met my husband in class at East Bay and we're still married now. :)

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Good career center. I was a Sociology major so my internship was required and Dr. Vugia was wonderful.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Great teachers, classes, and campus life. I really miss it sometimes.
