Student Life

Studying in the San Francisco Bay Area provides many opportunities outside the classroom and we encourage our students to explore the many beautiful and unique options found only in Northern California. The ALP Office helps arrange activities for students to become a part of our vibrant campus and community. We plan numerous campus activities, events and diverse social gatherings during the year.

Special Activities for ALP Students

We not only provide shopping trips and Fun trips, we also have a program we call Special Hour during which we showcase the talents and backgrounds of our students, instructors and staff. The idea behind Special Hour is to encourage community camaraderie allowing students to mingle with each other and the whole ALP family. So far, our students have recited their favorite poems, presented their hobbies and demonstrated their singing and dancing abilities. Our instructors have also joined in the fun by contributing their talents and interests, allowing our students to see a different side of them. From our instructors’ presentations, we learned about the Blues, baseball rules, Scrapbooking and interesting facts about other countries.

We also provide news via email known as Weekly Activities which details interesting activities on campus, around town and in San Francisco.

In addition, we arrange soccer matches. Regardless of whether you are soccer professional player or a beginner, we all get together and play.

Campus Activities

For those who are serious about their workouts, we have a state-of-the-art Recreation And Wellness Center (RAW). ALP students can use the RAW at a special price.

Within CSUEB, We have a very strong Associated Students Incorporated (ASI)/ Student Government which oversees our student needs. They provide the main source of funding for clubs and organizations within CSUEB. We currently have over 90 clubs and organizations all catered to our students' interests.
