4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My classes thus far have all been great. I've learned so much this past year. My instructors were all great at what they did and had so much knowledge to share in their subject. There are many classes to take and most are fairly small so you can usually talk to and get to know your instructor.

Overall Experience: The school has many resources for obtaining jobs and internships between semesters and after graduation. They also keep in touch with alumni and attempt to retrieve donations to fund school programs. Career center services are somewhat helpful but as with most job applications these days most of the work is done online.

College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: It's hard to give a rating for all of the schools officers because it ranges from some being very strict unfriendly and rude who wish only to write you up for the smallest of infractions (my friend got written up for throwing his ID card). On the other hand some are so lenient they won't even bother writing you up for bigger things like drugs/alcohol, they typically try to have you keep it out of site and out of mind. What they don't see doesn't affect them. My CA though would actively seek out violators and at one point we even caught him listening in at our door. It really depends on who you get though.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It's great. Their are many houses all around the campus. The houses tend to be very beautiful and landlords are typically very nice and helpful as are most people in arcata. They aren't usually very far from campus and if they are there is usually a bus route that goes through your area and directly to campus.

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Girls are cute fun and smart. Most are pretty open minded and aren't typically snobby or rude. Pretty much everyone is friendly and happy to meet new people and new friends.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: At this point I had good experiences.

Academics: So far so good. Lets talk again in a couple of month :)

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: Did not have a bad experience.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Great school spirit even for a small DIV II school

Diversity: I can tell more in a couple of month...

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: My application is still pending.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: At this point I have explored only options close to campus. I liked it.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Police is visible but not in your face. At this point, I feel safe on campus.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The school does help students who have lived to live off campus by providing students with information needed to get their best housing option

5 College Junior

Majors: I love my major! I am majoring in Elementary Education; the peers and professors are a great contributing factor to why I enjoy it. Right now I still would like to work with children in a classroom setting after college but, I am keeping my options open

5 College Junior

Majors: I did not have a hard time at all.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There are fraternities and sororities at Humboldt but they do not have special housing, I only know a few people who are in one of these groups and they seem to enjoy it.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus is really safe, and if you ever feel unsafe, call the campus police and they will escort you where you need to go. I keep the number in my speed dial, but have never needed it. They have a no questions policy, so never hesitate to call if you don't feel safe.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: It's better than most school campus dining... but it's still campus dining. Don't compare to your grandmother's cooking because it's a different ballpark here. BUT it is good for what it is.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't know much about the greek life. There are a few, but they aren't emphasized at all.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I haven't dined out a lot, but where I have been has been great. Excellent veggie/vegan options.
