    Dorm life is almost essential for getting to know people in the first year. Also, don't be alarmed by the small town lifestyle. It may take getting used to but it is definitely interesting and a good change from the city.Register for classes as soon as possible, classes fill up quick and call in for info quick so you can get the info, whomever you call is always nice and willing to help.

    For students who are focusing on majors such as Wildlife, Forestry, Kinesiology, Environmental Resource Engineering, or Chemistry the school is specifically strong in those fields and students who would like to major in those fields should check Humboldt State out because they have great resources. Overall talk to your parents, check out the Humboldt State website, and check out the school for yourself. Adapting to the outdoors is a must have thing to do if you choose Humboldt State as the school to get educated in.

    If you love nature and want to get away from the big city, this is the school for you. Bring a bike and prepare to do stairs everyday, it may seem like a lot of them but after a few months you get used to it. Try not to get early classes your first semester if you are not a morning person and remember nobody knows you better than yourself and good luck in college.
