east bay is very diverse which always creates a fun experience. the students are each surrounded by different cultures, backgrounds and different perspectives, so it's very interesting to observe and talk to different students. the professors are amazing at what they do, which makes the learning experience at east bay rich and worthwhile; students want to go to class.
