California State University-East Bay

California State University-East Bay, about 15 miles south of Oakland, California, offers business and education programs to its some 15,000 students, of whom about 13,000 are undergrads. CSU-EB has also been recognized as one of the more ethnically diverse schools in the country, with large Hispanic and Asian student populations. Located minutes away from downtown San Francisco, the campus gives students access to the arts and culture available in the East Bay and the city, as well as to the surrounding northern California outdoors. New students might want to explore the innovative Freshman Learning Communities program, which allows students to pick a cluster of thematically similar classes with likeminded students. The college says these programs help incoming students earn higher grades, develop writing skills, and -- most importantly -- graduate in four years. Greek life plays a significant role in campus culture, as students belong to over 20 fraternities and sororities. Many of the school's other student groups offer spaces for its minority and international students to come together.
