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.

Local Area: The environment is great I mean East Bay is 45 minutes away from San Francisco, 45 minutes away from Great America (theme park), maybe an hour away from UC Santa Cruz and many other places. The only disadvantage is that you need a car in order to go far away but as a result there is a subway call "BART". In addition, East bay is on top of a hill so we are away from the residents who live there. As a freshman I feel secure walking around the school and we are known for having a lot of DIVERSITY. The weather is great!!! There is always something to do around campus everyday 24/7.

Local Area: Not too sure because I do not live in Hayward, and I commute, but it seems like the area outside of the school is the hood.
