“Green”Ruth Sturtevant Alumni, 2007
There are two things that I immediately associate with Humboldt State. First, we are an environmentally focused school. Second, we are surrounded by so many beautiful trees and lush greenery. Both of these things make me think "green."
“Opportunity”Lee-Roy Haarhaus Student
Humboldt State opened up the world to me like no other place could.
“Plants”Sam Bookhardt Student
Because it is the best place to take botany courses!
“Amazing”Alexandra Seeley Student, 2013
Humboldt State University has been 1 of the most awesome experiences of my entire life. I love the school and the labs actually work here.
“Opportunity”Abby Heckman Student
College is one of the opportunities that you should never let go, and to go to Humboldt opens a lot of doors, and makes a lot of new opportunities for you to try out.
“Hella”Clay Gallardo Student, 2013
'cause its hella cool
“Green”Claire Faith Student, 2015
HSU is green all over! Physically, of course, because of the beautiful forest surroundings and our eco-friendliness, but also in the sense that green denotes moving forward; growth. We have a commitment to the environment, to ending bias, and to changing the future for the better.
“Future”Aida Castro Student, 2015
My first year at HSU I will be going in as a sophomore. When I was graduating high school I didn't really know what I was going to do so I just started going to city college. I started looking online at 4 year schools that I could transfer to and although a lot of them had good programs, HSU was the only one that I fell in love with. When I look at pictures or read about Humboldt I get excited about my future. I know Humboldt is the place I belong.
“Change”Emerald Ochoa Student
I don't even know how to begin to describe the transformation I've experienced, while here at HSU. We're constantly striving for change in and out of the classroom through socially conscious and environmentally conscious efforts. And I've taken those efforts to heart. I live life a little differently now.
“Preparation”Hayden Thomas Alumni, 2012
Humboldt State has prepared me for life.
“Neverending”Erin Guidarelli Student, 2014
There are so many things to do in Humboldt County. I have been here for three years and each year I have discovered multiple new experiences, whether it be academic related, socially related, athletically related, etc. Humboldt has so much to offer that I never knew it did before and I am so glad I have been given the chance to explore.
“Experience”Kimberly Watts Student, 2013
Here we get hands-on experience in our majors that sets us apart from other universities.
“Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”Yang Yang Student, 2011
It's impossible to express my feelings about HSU in just a single word.
“Trees !”Joel Shapiro Student, 2016
There is a beautiful atmosphere that is around the Humboldt State area that encompasses the campus. The trees here bring life to the community. The best thing in the world is a tree. I love trees and do not like to cut down trees especially if it is deforestation. Instead of cutting down trees, there should be a much better way.
“Growth”Samantha Whalen Student, 2015
Before I came here, my older brother passed away. Here is where I learned how to deal with the loss and improve my personal well-being. I am beginning to learn who I am now all thanks to moving away from my family.
“Life”Jimmy Student, 2014
Humboldt State brings imagination, creativity, and spontaneity to life in it's students and faculty. It changes a person.
“Convergence”Aaron Staack Alumni, 1996
There's something about this school, this town, this area that draws people to it. It's infectious really. Even though many may leave, they are always reconnected in some way. Whether you're driving in L.A. traffic and someone flashes you their Arcata library card, or in some random city, people see you are from Humboldt and feel as if they know you. There's a connection where all lines converge, and Humboldt is at its heart.
“Challenging”Jessica L. Kathol Student, 2013
Humboldt State University is challenging for many reasons. For one, we have wonderful professors who care about their students and make a conscious effort to know and remember our names. For two, I go to HSU because I want to become a teacher. If it weren't for this University, I would not be the person that I am today.
“Growth”Erica Askew Student, 2013
While at Humboldt I have grown so much as a person and learned so much about myself and what I want to do in life. Humboldt gives you the opportunity to be in situations that challenge you to grow.
