I graduated from Humboldt State University in 1998 with a BA in Social Science and stayed for an additional year to earn my teaching credential. I look back on my HSU experience as some of the best years of my life. As a high school teacher, I actively encourage my students to check out this lesser known Cal State. I truly believe it is one of the best kept secrets of the CSU system. Small class sizes, passionate professors who actually teach their classes,a beautiful and inspiring environment and a community that really caters to its college students makes HSU a wonderful institution to pursue higher learning.

I would recommend visiting before attending because HSU and Arcata can be a culture shock for some city dwellers…everyone smiles, strangers say hello, "hippies" sun themselves on the Arcata plaza, the lack of fast food chains, the constantly changing weather…while easily embraced by some these factors can be deal breakers for students who want a cosmopolitan lifestyle during college.

If you want a small college that offers lots of educational and cultural experiences in a beautiful setting with a liberal minded and accepting/tolerant community…you and HSU may be a perfect fit for each other.
