Formerly known as Cal State Hayward, Cal State East Bay is located across the bay from San Francisco. Perched up on a scenic hillside, CSUEB has about 13,000 undergraduates, about a thousand of whom live on campus. Housing is not guaranteed as the school is considered a commuter school.
Strong programs at CSUEB include business, nursing and psychology, but business and nursing are impacted programs. Class sizes are fairly small; the average class size is about 30. The largest lecture hall on campus holds about 200 students. CSUEB offers 51 majors and 65 minors, listed here.
Kinesiology is also a strong program; the campus has strong ties to the Oakland Raiders and Golden State Warriors, so students can gain hands-on experience with physical therapy as undergraduates. A new wellness center complements the existing athletic center, providing good athletic facilities for all students. CSUEB sports are Division II.
