3 College Junior

Greek Life: We do not have the largest greek life community at HSU but none-the-less it is very inclusive and welcoming.

Athletics: I think my school has awesome sports teams, but because they are division 2 not a lot of people attend or pay much attention to what is going on there. The variety of intramural sports is awesome.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love Humboldt State, it is so rewarding going to a school that is in the redwoods, I can walk through the community forest during my class breaks. The professors enjoy teaching the subjects and it does not seem like they are being forced to teach, they genuinely care if you understand the material.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My experiences with 2 years worth of classes and professors has been excellent. My professors made sure everyone could afford or have access to course materials and their time and attention. Throughout the semester classes, professors would encourage students to visit them during office hours for any questions or concerns.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Employers often have a couple job fairs every semester in order hire students for part-time positions. The career center also helps out throughout the year and helps run a job-finding website. I was lucky enough to find a job on campus through the school's website.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Our university police department work hard to create a safe space. My freshman year of college, 3 friends and I went out to eat at a local diner and returned back on campus very late into the night. We came across a student who seemed a little off and made us feel unsafe. My friends and I went to the nearest emergency box that contacts the police and asked for help. They responded immediately and sent out patrol cars right away. The faulty and staff, as well as the students, are all serious about making the campus and the community a safe place to live in and to seek help.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: From what I have heard and seen are campus, Greek life is not too big. No one treats each other differently for joining or not joining a fraternity or sorority.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The athletics at Humboldt State University are great. A large amount of students either join sports teams or attend sport events. I believe it has a lot to do with the fact that HSU does not have an outrageously amount of students, so many students know one another. Those who are not involved in sports directly usually have friends who are, so they go to their friends games for support. As far as facilities go, they are outstanding. HSU has something for everyone.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I gave a rating of HSU 5 out of 5, because it is the best school I could have chosen for myself. I love the atmosphere and the people. Since the Humboldt community is much smaller and more intimate than the community I come from in Los Angeles, CA, I find it refreshing. It is awesome to feel like Humboldt is where I belong: on and off campus. I definitely made the right decision.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: There really is no greek life. More of "clubs" that sororities or fraternities.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The problem is not the campus. It is the some of the people who don't see things like this as a problem- whether it be their actions or someone else's. You just have to be conscious and careful with who you surround yourself with because some people don't know their boundaries, and that is when things get dangerous.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Unless you're doing something in the sciences or social sciences, the value of a degree from this school isn't received as that valuable. The only thing saving you is the fact that it is a CSU.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: On campus housing is far too expensive. If you get the aid needed to cover it all, and especially as a freshmen or sophomore, you won't be phased by it; however, if you do the math, living off campus where housing is relatively close, you will have the same quality of living for 3/4 the price of what you'll pay living on campus. That is money better spent else where or saved for later when you might need it.

Do it your freshmen year for the experience-and because you may be required to, but after that, save a lot of money and live off campus.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: In certain departments, our school is LACKING.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's fairly easy to find a job on campus or a local internship. I think local businesses really like hiring students.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's a relaxing and beautiful place to go to school, you can study out in the redwoods or on the beach.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel safer on campus with the 'Blue light' system with the university police department, you can just pick up a phone located under the blue lights and someone will answer and come to help with whatever.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I've never stayed on campus housing so I'm not sure how it really is.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: HSU Greek's are more focused on what the can do for the surrounding community which I think is a great thing.

4 College Senior

Athletics: It's amazing to see how much the community supports the athletics just as much as the students who attend.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Coming to HSU has been life changing, I was able to find out who I was as a person and grow into the person I want to be. The atmosphere on and off campus is friendly and inviting, I would highly recommend HSU to students who want to get away from a larger city for awhile, and still get an amazing education.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Professors are cool. Registration can be a hassal, especially in FA office. As long as you keep a schedule and stick to it then the work is manageable, it's easy to not do homework because you forget sometimes. You can really study anywhere you want on campus, even in the forest.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: This school is so accepting. They don't care what your background, sexual preference is or anything. If you're a cool person then that's all that matters really. There's somewhere for everyone and people are really friendly and very open to meeting new people.

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Humboldt is the school known fro weed. Your parents might say that the only reason you are going to Humboldt is because it is the weed capital of California. You smell weed everywhere you go so you can't really get away from it. You may get pressured to try but if you don't then you're fine.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love this school. The professors are easy to get along with, the courses are interesting especially when the professor has passion for what they are doing. Classes can get pretty large and noisy but it is easy to pay attention, just try to get as close to the front if you are serious about the class (even if you aren't you still should be).
