Study Groups Within Classes

One way to stay connected and make meaningful connections with your peers is to form study groups within classes. They offer great support as well as opportunities to meet new people. Many students use Discord or Slack to connect with their classmates and stay up to date on assignments.

Participate in School Events 

Another great way to stay connected and make meaningful connections with your peers is to participate in school events on and off campus. Here at Cal State East Bay, we have many events that allow students to get more connected with campus. We have events such as career fairs, movie nights, and many different online programs that the RAW/PAW offers. Keep a look out for the many different events we have, bring a friend, and stay open to meeting new people. 

Explore your Surroundings 

Exploring your surroundings can be a great way to make more meaningful connections. Students can gather with friends, roomates, classmates, and more people that would enjoy discovering a new place. These places can be as simple as a place on campus, going to a nearby park, going to watch a movie in downtown Hayward, or visiting San Francisco for the day. Visiting new places is not only a great way to connect with more people, but also allows students to get more familiar with new areas.
