Cal State East Bay welcomes admitted students and their families to participate in our annual Welcome Day held on the Hayward Campus. We hope that you will join us to discover the beauty of our campus and to explore the vast array of academic programs and student services that are available.

This event is not a substitution for orientation, but it is a highly recommended event for students still making their final college choice. We want to show you why we think CSUEB should be your first choice university!
