There is extensive program support for students outside of class, all of which contribute to students' rapid acquisition of English skills:
- The Speaking Partners Program matches an ALP student with a regular university student for weekly conversation and friendship
- Fun Trips takes students to many interesting and entertaining places around the Bay Area on weekends.
Here are some of the wonderful free or low-cost events and places that both the students
and ALP Fun Trip Coordinator enjoy!
Cal State East Bay Campus Activities
Life beyond the classroom is
an important part of the ALP experience. ALP students are encouraged to take an
active part in campus life. The Cal State East Bay campus is host
to many multicultural festivals and activities held to celebrate
holidays and events.
Physical Education and Dance Classes
can attend University physical education, sports, and dance classes at no cost on a space-available basis.
Clubs and Organizations
There are more than 90 special
interest clubs and students are welcome to join one (or more) if
they wish. Participating in a club provides ALP students an opportunity
to be involved in activities with other students who share common
interests while improving language skills and having fun. There
are also opportunities to take an active part in student campus
affairs and government. Click here to learn more.
