What is your overall opinion of this school?

Middle of nowhere. Geographically isolated. This school is really its own world. you need to build and work to keep friendships alive or else it can be a lonely place (middle of the woods) Small town, limited food options, racist (mostly white), limited employment and living situations. a good school for science but thats about it. Hippies, potheads, and science nerds- welcome to humboldt state. bring a rain jacket, s.a.d. can be a bitch.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When college first became a consideration, Humboldt was always my first choice, but my family would still not let me attend without at least a visit to tour the campus. It was everything i thought it would be. Beautiful, friendly, small, and surround by the most amazing giants. The community forest is my favorite part about the campus itself. Being a wildlife conservation and management major, there is no better opportunity for such a resource. The wildlife program in and of itself is also great. There is overall concern and respect for nature throughout the wildlife department, and I truly feel that I belong there. The class sizes make it easy to get up close and hand on experience with the wildlife we all hope to work with and help preserve. So few schools in California offer such a program, so it really is dream to be attending this school. The housing can use a bit of work, but the price is reasonable which allows individuals such as myself in need of financial assistance to attend college. Overall, Humboldt is a quiet little school out in almost the middle of no where, but the opportunities they provide through higher education and quality programs has had a big impact on my future aspirations.

The campus is great and small, which makes it really easy to get to one place to another. The staff and students here make everyone welcomed, which makes me feel safe about the school. There are also many opportunities at HSU that you can get access to that you never thought was available.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here!! Humboldt State University was basically my first choice school. I love that it is such an environmentally involved school. We try our best to keep the school as Green and Resourceful as possible. The community is very friendly and welcoming as well. And like it is enforced here at school, "you are welcome here, hate is not". I love HSU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

HSU is a treasure trove. Like the emerald forests that surround campus, there are many niches for one to settle into. There is an abundance of themed housing for one to join, events both on and off campus, as well as general hang-outs the locals are eager to share. This is by no means limited to social life. Academically, Humboldt State houses plenty of opportunities for students to branch out and truly explore their field.

Humboldt State is a school where you can truly be yourself without being afraid of judgement. There is room for all backgrounds, a place for all self expressions. Located in a beautiful, serene environment, one is sure to find themselves. The small classes and easily accessible faculty will help lead you to succeed academically. Overall, this amazing campus will show you the true meaning of expression, activism, and community, all while assisting you to gracefully succeed in the field in which you are studying.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am so happy with my choice to go to Humboldt State. I was a little into the outdoors and stuff in high school, but after coming here, hiking and outdoor adventures are a part of my life. Everyone here is super friendly and you're sure to find something to talk about with anyone! The classroom sizes are small so you're able to get more one on one with teachers, and even if you can't they always have office hours that they all urge you to go to get extra help! Overall, the atmosphere or Humboldt is amazing!
