Local university selected as 'Best in the West'
The Princeton Review, one of the top evaluators and guides for university-bound students in the United States, has selected California State University, East Bay as a "Best in the West" college for 2006. It is the third consecutive year that Cal State East Bay has been recognized by the Princeton Review, which provides college preparation aid to more than 117,000 students annually.
The publication gave the university high recommendation after reviewing results from a survey of Cal State East Bay students about campus life, academics, and classmates. It found that Cal State East Bay students gave their university high marks for academics, small class sizes, campus life and a student population that is "very diversified in terms of age, race and ethnicity."
"This recognition tells the nation what many on our campuses have known for a long time," said Mo Qayoumi, president of Cal State East Bay."This confirms that we're on the right track in our goal of making Cal State East Bay a regional institution of first choice with first-rate facilities, student services and degree programs."
