It is not as competative as UC's and other high powered institutions but the advantatge is you can really stand out and succeed here if you are an above average student. Also, the education is more based on getting you ready to be more technically proficient at your job as opposed to theory based academics. For art students looking for a small class size and a more well rounded education in other disciplines as well, then go here instead of say the Academy of Art in SF.

    CSUEB is a diverse school with a large community and a place for almost everyone. The students are cool, classes are good, but school can be rough. East Bay will accept you in some way or another

    California State University-East Bay is a college where no matter where you come from you will be able to graduate and obtain a degree. Though school spirit is low in sports the university makes up for it with a good Greek Life. The school is on a hill so you don't have to deal with the noise from the city and still have easy access with the universities shuttle.
