  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

well i actually go to the smaller campus in concord but i know that the hayward campus is really big, and the classes are pretty huge but its a great school. there are a lot of fun clubs you can join there and there are a lot of activities to do over there. its a very lively campus.

The best thing at CSUEB is its cluster program. It is helpful in so many ways, by helping you meet people, to starting you off in a good route for the next upcoming years. The professors there are really helpful as long as you seek help.
Misael from Los Angeles, CA
They are a good school so far from what I've seen. They don't return phone calls that much, so you will have to just keep calling them. Last, but not least they have a very positive attitude on campus.
Laurice from Rialto, CA
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.
