School Advice - Bay Area Folks!

Does anyone have any experience with California State University East Bay? I realize that's Oakland/Richmond area which to me, as someone who is only experienced with the East Bay through rumors, from reputation it's like going to school in Compton.

Is it in a safe university area where a short female can catch a train and get to class without too much risk of being accosted or is it crack-whore central?

I currently am attending a Cal State school in an area known for being kind of rough as well, but the area immediately around the school itself is a developed and nice university mini-town, so I only have to drive through minimal crap to reach the safe university perimeter. That type of thing is fine, and I'm used to that. I just want to know if the campus/means of getting to campus are okay.

I'd prefer to either stay within the Cal State system or go somewhere that accepts Cal State gen-ed credits, hence why I'm asking specifics.
