Humboldt State University is a beautiful campus.Quite BrightPsychology
Humboldt State University is a beautiful campus. There are lots, and lots of trees. The University is in a small weed centric city. A lot of people smoke the stuff here. Not many people talk about it but they do it. This place is probably the most liberal campus in the nation. If you are a conservative, republican, humboldt doesn't want you. People, though are accepting of ones views but mostly eevryone here has the same views about everything. The academics are alright. They are not hardcore, nor will you be stressing out every minute of everday. People here are not competitive and are willing to work with you. The teachers here are laid back and some will let you take exams over again if you failed the first time around. There is not much prestige with the univeristy but I do know they have a good natural science department. If your looking for recognition and challenging coursework definetley do not come here.

HSU is a great school.BrightBiology
HSU is a great school. I more often than not have PhD.'s teaching my lab sections and I have not ever felt as though my needs weren't met.

Question
It rains a lot here in Humboldt andBrightEnglish
It rains a lot here in Humboldt and can be quite cold, we are also isolated (no large cities and very little nightlife) but on the other hand it is the most beautiful place I have ever been. We are 5-10 minutes away from gorgeous beaches and redwood forrests, and large friendly rivers to play in in the summer and mountains to ski down in the winter. We really have everything here if you are the outdoorsy type. Also, people here are really friendly and are very accepting of others' religions and cultures etc. Humboldt State tries very hard to diversify the campus through programs and courses. My English major is almost like an ethnic studdies major because we cover so much more than dead white male writers. I really like Humboldt and I think that most people (unless you need a city or cold concrete to keep you happy) would be happy here too. Come and visit us!
