"Great For Working Adults"

This is actually the East Bay Campus of CSU Hayward. Although it offers fewer courses than the mother campus to the west, CSU Hayward East Bay is a fully functioning campus which serves the needs especially of working adults.

The campus is just a few office style buildings on top of a hill surrounded by rolling grassy hills, but the instruction is solid. I took a lit course there 15 years ago and found the instruction quite solid. Contra Costa County has a few educational options—including a UC Extension and a couple of community colleges: Diablo Valley College and the community college in Richmond.

You probably wouldn’t be able to make it through an entire 4-year program at this facility without ever venturing to the main campus, but you could probably do a good portion of it if you positioned yourself correctly.

Overall, a definite benefit to the Concord/Walnut Creek community.
