    Humboldt has a very beautiful campus, with a nice scenery all around it. The size of the school is very small, so it seems that each student would get individual attention, which is very important to me. The towns around the campus are pretty small as well, but the good kind of small town.

    Very involved in social justice, nice and interesting people to interact with. Professors are easy to talk and meet with, willing to sit and talk at your convenience. Beautiful campus to walk around in, surrounding city as well.

    Humboldt State University is a good school overall with diverse programs, open opportunities, and various resources. The school offers students opportunities throughout the year that are helpful to students, opportunities such as getting to meet teachers personally and having mentors to help students stay on the right path. Also the school is spirited and they have good food.

    Engineering program is very flawed. Equipment and resources are out dated and sometimes unusable. The teachers are not very helpful and none of the classes are fair.

    HSU is a great school, it may be isolated from the big cities, but it has so much beauty to offer and people just have to live here to realize that. HSU also has great teachers who are always willing to help students one on one when they need it. One thing that is hard to get use to is how nice faculty is and how they are willing to provide the best service ever.

    Great school for studying natural sciences. One of the best regional schools for studying botany as well as mycology.

    If you are looking to get away from the big city and join a community of people driven to change how we run our world, then Humboldt State is the college for you. The small classroom sizes help students engage with professors one-on-one for expert help in the their field of study. The environment in the Humboldt area is truly astonishing with the redwood forest in the backyard of the University.
