Cultural Diversity at Cal State East Bay #YouAreWelcomeHere
Welcome to California State University, East Bay. Cal State East Bay is located in California at the heart of the Bay Area. Students, Faculty and Staff mirror the diversity of the San Francisco Bay Area It is nationally recognized and constantly awarded as one of the most culturally diverse campuses across the United States Aside from the wonderful
sights, the amazing food, and the hospitable people, I really enjoy the
diversity and how people are so welcoming. You will meet people
from all walks of life from anywhere in the world and feel like you’ve been
lifelong friends. My name is Bernard Juan Putra I came from Indonesia. Cameroon, West Africa Shanghai, China Danang, Vietnam Saudi Arabia Germany I’m originally from Thailand Cal State East bay is very very diverse. I love the people, I love the food, I just love the environment. It’s very
conducive for studying. I would say it’s a beautiful campus and it’s really diverse. So just give it some time and you will definitely find a great group of friends because personally I have. From maybe your own country or even those students around here who are local. Cal State East Bay has the largest
proportion of international students in the Cal State System. With students from 70 different countries Indonesia is very far from here so
everything is very different. The weather is very different, the people are very
different and even how we greet each other is very different.
I always learn something new every day. When I studied English I studied
it in another state but it wasn’t that diverse. It was only me and the native
speakers. When you find a diverse place you don’t like panic, you feel home. If I had
the chance to go back in time and study English I would definitely study it here. It’s a really good opportunity to explore the world if you come here.
