Meet Your Tour Guides!

We look forward to greeting you and showing you everything Cal State East Bay has to offer.


Amanda I am a freshman who graduated high school at Baldwin High in Maui, Hawaii. I am a pre-Business major with an option in Public Relations. I chose Business as my major because I have always wanted to work in an office also I feel like Business is a broad major that will allow me to experience many different opportunities. At first it was really difficult for me to adjust to college life because I was very homesick. After classes started I fell into the flow and was able to really enjoy the college experience. The Business program is one of the best out of all the Cal States. Business was really the “IT” factor that made me come to The Bay. My favorite quote is, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” by John Lennon. The song most played on my iPod is "Always and Forever" by The Green, I love this song because it reminds me of home.


Crystina Esparza I transferred into East Bay as a Junior and am now a Senior. I am a Communications major with a focus in Public Relations. I chose this major because my goal and aspiration in life is to become a radio personality. The reasons that I chose Cal State East Bay are because the school is not impacted, and there is a lot more diversity here than at the community college I attended. My favorite quote is "Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." by Martin Luther King Jr. Of all the songs in my iPod, the most played is "A Change is Gonna Come" by Leela James.


Denika I am currently a Sophomore majoring in Communications. I am a Communications major because I want to be famous of course for good things, I want to have my own television and radio show plus become a rapper/songwriter/producer. My transition into East Bay was slightly difficult, because I am a professional procrastinator and I was no longer in high school so my course load was heavier and more demanding. I feel like everybody has an East Bay story, to be honest I came to this school for love, I am no longer with that person, but I do not regret any of the decisions I've made. East Bay is my home I would like to be the President of this University one day. My favorite quote is "Everybody wants to be famous but nobody wants to put in the work." The song that I listen to the most is “Same Love” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.


Dominque I am currently a Junior. My major is Biology. With this major I hope to become a pediatrician. I love working with children and people. What helped my smooth transition into college is the EOP program. The program helped me pick my classes and pushed me to better myself. I chose Cal State East Bay because of the view and also the opportunity it offers. My favorite quote is "Believe you can and you're halfway there" by Theodore Roosevelt. My most played song on my iPod is “The Way” by Ariana Grande.


Javis I am currently a CSUEB Senior, and will be graduating in the Spring of 2014. I’m majoring in Biology because I want to pursue a career in the medical field. I was raised in Ewa Beach, Hawaii on the island of Oahu. After high school, I decided to attend Grossmont Community College in San Diego. From there, I transferred to CSUEB in the Summer of 2012. My transition into CSUEB was fun and exciting thanks to the various clubs and organizations on campus. I’m a part of the Excel program, Global Med Brigades Club, SSOS program, and President of the Pacific Islander Student Club. This summer I went on a medical mission trip to Honduras, where I assisted doctors as they treated the locals who did not have access to adequate healthcare. I love island reggae music, so the most played song on my iPod would be “Redemption Song” by Bob Marley. In that song he says one of my favorite quotes: “Emancipate yourself from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds…”


Kumar Krishan I am a transfer student from Chabot College and a Bay Area native. I am pursuing a double major in Business with options in Accounting and Finance, and Art with a Studio option. I will be graduating this year! I have loved every minute of my time spent here at Cal State East Bay. I am part of the large community of students who work on and off campus and go to school. I work at the Welcome Center on campus, and also work as a draftsman at PRC Design located off campus. My favorite quote is “A wise person should have money in their head, but not in their heart,” by Jonathan Swift. The most played song on my iPod is “Believe” by Tech N9ne. I look forward to showing you around campus on your tour!


Ronald I am a junior and my major is Criminal Justice with a Sociology minor. I have always wanted to work while helping others. My transition into college was a bit difficult in a sense of being the first generation of my family to attend a university. No one really told me what to expect from college, but after a couple of days the transition was easier for me. I chose to attend Cal State East Bay for the location, the weather, the view, and a schedule similar to my high school. My favorite quote is "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication," by Leonardo Da Vinci. Of all the songs in my iPod, The Smiths "Handsome Devil" is the most played song.


Sergio Cerna I am a sophomore here at Cal State East Bay. My major is Business. I like the idea of maybe one day owning my own business. The transition into college for me was relatively easy because I do not live that far from home, so whenever I want to go back home I can. Also the new friends I made allowed my transition to college be much smoother. I chose to attend Cal State East Bay because I received more financial aid from here and the school was close to home. One of my favorite quotes would be "It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light," by Aristotle. The most played song in my iPod would be "Loose it" by Atreyu.


Timothy Ibrahim I am a Senior double majoring in Hospitality and Tourism, and Theatre with an emphasis in Dance. I chose this major because I felt it was exactly what I wanted to do; be in the customer service field and still be able to pursue my passion for dance. My transition into college was very smooth. I jumped right in and went through the trial and error process. Figuring out what works for me, and what doesn't work for me. My favorite quote is "If you stay ready you don't have to get ready." My favorite song to play on my iPod is “Single Ladies” by Beyoncé.
