Horribly run school that continually perpetuates a legacy
Horribly run school that continually perpetuates a legacy of crappiness.
Was a student at Cal State Easy Bay (Formally Cal State Hayward) for a little more than 3 years. In my time there observed or heard from direct witnesses that the following happened:

-Different people of both the same and different gender engaging in sexual activates in two different public student bathrooms

-Students repeatedly getting food poisoning from two different school cafeterias
-Concessions stands serving old food and being continually understaffed
-Teachers being hired that grade on a scale of “C” and up
-Horrible teachers who gave tests which were logically, and fundamentally faulty
-Some teachers didn’t even cover class materials for whole quarters at a time, and just talked about the daily going ons of their lives to fill time

-Great instructors being underpaid and ripped off in their paychecks. Being denied tenure ship through an administrative scheme to call them “Part-time Lecturers” instead, so as to save the college more money while screwing over it’s fewer good teachers

-The student swimming pool repeatedly not being hygienically up to state code
-The student turf track having holes in it
-Department managers engaging in illegal harassment of student employees
-Dorm rooms being broken into and student possessions being stolen
-Students being physically assaulted and beaten by university staff members in class
-University athletic teams using steroids
-Classes and teachers being threatened in broad day light by gang members claiming they had firearms
-At least two Associated Student Inc. presidents running behind door, illegal deals to either insight violence on campus or illegally bar innocent students from running for class elections

-Days where groups of cars in student parking lots have had their windows smashed and stereos stolen.

-Wild turkeys which probably had rabbis obstructed traffic on campus. And this is probably not all, it's just what I can think of right now

As a student with learning disorders I haveAverageSociology
As a student with learning disorders I have found being at this school to be very challenging because of my disabilities. Yes I do receive accommodations, but the challegning part come when they are not enought to help you get through a 12 page paper and there is little help to be found elsewhere with compassion. I have founded that this school awareness of students with learning difficulties is small, yet trying to grow.

When I attended, theBrightAccounting
When I attended, the students were very much "show up, go to class, leave campus". There wasn't much in the way of team building, etc. I understand things have improved somewhat, but not much.
