Student & Graduate Reviews

Felicia Ismail - 3/1/2017
Degree: Healthcare Administration
Graduation Year: 2015
"I had a positive experience at CSUEB. The campus is extremely big, plenty of parking, and filled with diversity. I met such a great group of life long friends in my graduating class. Although this university is considered to be a commuter school, I still keep in touch with my friends! The professors are extremely helpful, they want all of the students to succeed. I graduated in Health Sciences emphasis Pre-Clinical Preparation. The curriculum is designed for students to become a new face in healthcare with innovated ideas and creativity. I enjoyed taking a wide range of courses because health care is extremely broad. Overall, my experience at CSUEB had been outstanding and I am forever grateful with the opportunities and knowledge I have gained."

Mausa Zamani - 2/9/2017
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2015
"At California State University Eastbay, (in the business department), there is a lot of wonderful professors. Majority of the professors are there to help you and want you to succeed in life, and want you to be ready in the real world work force. One major reason why I picked Business for my major was because of the good ratings the school had for its Business Department. As it says on the brochures "Best in the West""

Degree: Communications (Journalism & Media)
Graduation Year: 2015
"Cal State East Bay offered more than just curriculum to prepare me for life after graduation. During my senior year, I had the opportunity to experience life abroad as well as assist in providing feedback for new systems That students will be able to benefit from in the future. The media program is booming and I'm so excited for the direction the communications department is moving in and even more excited to see how future students will utilize those skills to add to the ever-changing world."

Prince Sir Jackson - 9/12/2016
Degree: Multimedia Design
Graduation Year: 2014
"California State University - East Bay is a very decent college, however, "decent" is not for everyone. Setting us up for success should be the main priority of all universities. Feeling this sense of security upon graduation would make it a true experience that I would enjoy to tell people. Although, I did end up eventually landing a good paying job, it felt as if my education did not have much to do with it. Do not get me wrong, I had a great time in college and would not have learned a lot of what I know today if it wasn't for my education."

Gennesis - 9/7/2016
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2018
"I am very satisfied with your Criminal Justice program. It is not impacted but it is growing in numbers both with students and staff. The professors are people that truly care and take the time to get to know you as a student if you pursue them. Our major advisors are always willing to listen and help our fellow criminal justice majors, it is very easy to contact them. I have had nothing but a great experience with my major department."

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2008
"College did exactly what my AP teachers in high school told me college would do; college would teach me to be a critical thinker. With the major I chose this was true. Psychology sits in the middle of science and liberal arts."

Ashley DeGrano - 4/29/2016
Degree: Communications (Speech & Rhetorical Studies)
Graduation Year: 2010
"Cal State East Bay allowed me to take courses that really helped support my future passions. All of the professors were continuously available for communication and support. I had fantastic mentors and they encouraged me to continue with my passions after graduation and enter the teaching credential program. I still keep in contact with some of my professors and peers, and this has provided me with a community that I still feel connected to post graduation. I was prepared for my career both educationally and mentally at Cal State East Bay, and I am grateful for the experience."

"I commuted to campus, location is convenient to highway. My program had good professors, I feel like I learned alot and I had a good group of classmates. Application process was straight forward and staff to get right documents was very helpful. The main professors I enjoyed working with were Dr. Terry Soo-hoo. He really prepared me for my work and was a great role model in the counseling psychology field."
