Don't go here unlessQuite BrightSocial Work
Don't go here unless you are not serious about your education. Honestly this school could of done a bunch of things for me but what I ended up with was regret. Luckily I was able to go to a much better school for my MSW.Don't let the friendly attitude trick you. Go somewhere else.

Humboldt State is a laid back, friendly hippieBrightSocial Work
Humboldt State is a laid back, friendly hippie school. The only snobby people I have met while going to Humboldt were rich kids from SoCal. This school is very liberal, so you must be a little more open minded to go here. Saying words like "fag" and "queer" is not tolerated here.

Housing is very competitive! Apply early, because the dorms fill up fast and you don't want to get stuck in an apartment miles away from campus. If you do end up living on campus, don't smoke weed in the dorms. I know more than a handful of people who got kicked out for getting caught over and over again. I know it's Humboldt, but they still don't tolerate marijuana, even if you have a medical card.

The best programs here are for the sciences. The art departments are also excellent, but not what the school is know for.I'm in Social Work and the department is pretty good.

The HSU school ofQuite BrightSocial Work
The HSU school of social work will leave you with a horrible case of buyers remorse.Chaos and busy-work will leave you feeling tired and hopeless. The program is caving in and it would be wise if you decided to go elsewhere.
