Student Life at HSU

Creative and open-minded. Friendly and curious. Progressive and different. That's Humboldt State students, and they do quite a bit more than complete their degree requirements. They explore, volunteer, organize and play. They try new things and challenge the status quo.

At Humboldt State, we encourage you to pursue your interests and follow your own path—in the classroom and beyond.

About Humboldt State University
