Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2016

I really enjoy my graduation program here at California State University of East Bay. Some of the pros about being enrolled for this master's program is the fact that you can take this course online. It makes it easier for a student to be , accessed to the classrooms all the time. However, there are some cons when being enrolled to this online master's program. It is difficult to develop a relationship with the professors of your courses. They are only available during office hours and it is hard to understand what exactly they want from you when you don't have a lot of details come from them. Considering the fact that it is online, there are not that many scholarships available for this master's degree program which makes me struggle finically.
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2017

This is a great place to work and go to school. Many of their majors are not impacted compared to the other CSU schools in the Bay Area, which is nice. They have brand new gym, dormitory and common area buildings. The library needs to expand their hours, and they should offer 24 hour access to students. Closing at 10:00 p.m., during the weekdays, during fall, winter, and spring sessions is community college level and does not foster the environment for those serious students that spend multiple hours during the day and night studying. 24 hours should at least be implemented for Monday, Tues, Weds and Thurs. I noticed high activity for fraternities and sororities. There were frequent events, during the evening, school day, and on the weekends.

Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2016

Attending Cal State East Bay has been an amazing experiences. The classes are usually small and the professors really care about the students. The Healthcare Administration program at Cal State is really challenging but there is a network of people you can reach for major support.
4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Project Management
Graduation Year: 2016

I recently got accepted to the campus. I wanted to attend their construction management program because the campus and the diversity is amazing. I love the fact that you can get really involved in the classes because of their size. I feel like the quality of the work we perform is comparable to other high ranking university. I'm also happy to say that I attended this campus to acquire my bachelors in Industrial Engineering, and would not trade the experience, I was involved in many clubs and organizations. The campus always strives to do better for their students from holding events, new infrastructure, and scholarships.

Degree: Communications (Speech Pathology)
Graduation Year: 2016

The speech and language pathology program at this institution is excellent. The faculty are exceedingly knowledgeable with a wealth of experience and much to offer the graduate cohorts. The clinical experience is adequate to prepare students for life post-graduation. I am very happy and satisfied with this graduate program.
