Degree: Wildlife, Fish and Wildlands Science and Management
Graduation Year: 2013

Overall Humboldt State was a good University. They do need help in improving a few areas, regarding their programs to help support underrepresented students, especially in career and education advancement. However, if you in the biology, natural resources field and enjoy the outdoors I would reccommend this school.

Degree: Cell/Cellular and Molecular Biology
Graduation Year: 2017

Humboldt State is situated in a fantastic location, has a broad array of instructors from highly-varied backgrounds, and offer a wide variety within their curriculum. Of course administration is overpaid, but many instructors are inherently worth more than they are paid- the amount of knowledge some professors have to offer/share is absolutely amazing. Getting involved with research projects can be difficult, but actively asking around has proven to offer me more opportunities than I had previously thought possible. Active involvement in clubs can supplement your education in getting involved with peers at a level that opens more doors than the average class has to offer. For a freshman wishing to live in a near-perfect climate (somewhat rainy, but always gorgeous) while pursuing a worthwhile education, Humboldt State is highly recommended!

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2015

Humboldt State University is a lovely university situated in Northern California, and I am happy to say I am an HSU Alumni. I graduated with a BA in English education, with a minor in TESL/TEFL, and I am generally happy with the level of quality instruction I received. The class sizes are small, and the professors know you by name. Because the classes are so small, you really form a tight-knit community with your peers, and this helps to facilitate the collaborative group work that comes standard in any English degree. Overall, I would recommend Humboldt State University to anyone looking to pursue a higher education within the CSU system.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

Great school, though a bit heavy on diagnosis and less on holistic and humanistic approaches. Educated faculty who were supportive. Great access to student internships and opportunities with clubs and research/teaching assistance internships.

A very liberal college that has a lot of character. Great for the arts, and any kind of earth science.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

HSU provided me the opportunity to get a hands on feel for organizing a movement from scratch onto the campus and the surrounding city with so much support from the staff and professors.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2011

It is an extremely valuable use of your time. Studying mathematics I gained skills in problem solving and abstract ways of thinking that are very useful. Also, going to a liberal arts school affords you the option to study a myriad of things.

Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2009

This is an 5 program that prepared me well for the job market. Focus on collaboration, field work, and technical writing strengthen the education. Graduates are very competitive.

Degree: Ethnic Studies
Graduation Year: 2010

The Ethnic Studies major and program is an extremely well rounded and dynamic program. It's a program that was built through the interdisciplinary study of US Government, Ethnicity, Power and Privilege, Class, and Queer & Gender Studies. This program is a great fit for those who are interested in the realm of politics, policy making, social work, law school, teaching, or pursuing a masters in either Gender and Sexuality Studies, Ethnic Studies (such as African Studies, Chicano Studies, Native American Studies, etc), Psychology, Sociology, etc. The professors are very involved in their specialties and many are activists in their own communities. This program was very integral in my development as a Community Activist and developing my passion for Law. I would recommend this program for anyone is passionate about alleviating societal injustices or pursuing a career in the fields of justice such as Law, local and larger scale activism, the justice system, etc.

Degree: International Business/Trade/Commerce
Graduation Year: 2012

Looking back I think the education I received from Humboldt State University was really intricate compared to other universities. The local area attracts instructors from all over the world very distinct perspectives that I feel contribute to a very in-depth education. Especially from an international standpoint, HSU promotes a global focus, a focus you can truly feel even though it is a small university. Studying abroad, I met many people who knew this school and its reputation for sustainability as well as the university's focus activism. I think if you think "outside the box" this is a great place to learn
