It's a great atmosphere,

May 26 2006Art & Design Department
It's a great atmosphere, everyone is very friendly, and the faculty is very approachable. However, there is no nightlife whatsoever. Humboldt is really what you make it, if you make a good group of friends, then you'll have a great time.

Students are great

Nov 07 2006Computer Science
Students are great. Some majors are very good. Management is poor. Lots of cuts in programs and changing some class sizes to 300+ students. CIS program is weak. Do more research then I did before attending! Faculty are mixed good and bad as most schools. Don't get me wrong they're not all bad. In my experience there are more bad then good and this affects the overall.

This place is beautiful--let's get that out there

Aug 25 2005Philosophy
This place is beautiful--let's get that out there right away because, really, if you don't love nature you might as well not waste your time here. There is very little "night scene," hence if you're in college looking for that, look elsewhere. If you're looking for marijuana, well, you'll find it--that part of our reputation is certainly true. What you don't hear about, however, is the fact that certain departments (such as philosophy) have programs that honestly compete with much larger, better respected institutions. If you're interested in philosophy, take a look at our degree requirements and put them up against nearly any other program; you'll quickly see what I mean. Additionally, I know all the professors by name; they say hello to me (as well as most of the majors) as they pass me in the halls, call me into their offices for quick chats, etc. Open-door-policy isn't a cliche here, it's honestly the M.O. That said, I'm also an English major and that department has been rather lackluster--not bad, mind you, just underwhelming--when contrasted with my wonderful philosophy experience.

A seriously negative point: our library is tiny, understocked and underfunded. If I could change one thing about this university, that would be it. Also, sometimes our administrators spend money in some silly ways...but I think that's just as much the state's fault.So yeah, join us here in the Redwoods, but do us all a favor: leave that SoCal attitude down south. We're a relaxed, largely non-materialistic bunch up here and it rains too much to have all that makeup on and there are too many hills for those big heels of yours.
