3.54 Average Rating
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.

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.
