Student Panel and Virtual Tour

For Spring 2021 Preview Day, our Student Ambassadors led a virtual campus tour and participated in a student panel. They gave their perspective on why they love East Bay, and took questions from the audience as well. Hear from current students about their experience and get to know East Bay a little better!
