University description (as per official university website)
What sets HSU apart from other universities? In a word, innovation.
You are the Focus Here
Innovation begins with the way we approach the teacher-student relationship. Many colleges boast prestigious, but distant, faculty members. Our students actually know their world-renowned professors. In addition to being leaders in the sciences and humanities, HSU professors are commited to mentoring their students by including them in all kinds of experiments, lab research, and field work.
Our Approach Equals Your Success
At Humboldt State, learning isnít limited to sitting in a classroom and taking notes. Our students take that knowledge and apply it in the real world by doing their own seismic readings, photography, wildlife studies, social work and more. Why is this important? Because success in the job market, whether you wind up in business, zoology or any field in between, requires strong entrepreneurial and critical thinking skills.
Those skills aren't easily honed by sitting in a lecture hall.
Our emphasis on combining classroom learning with hands-on experience, will help you gain those critical skills. Itís an innovative approach to education that yields results. Itís also something rarely found at an undergraduate school.
The HSU Financial Aid Office is committed to assisting students seeking resources to finance their education by administering federal, state and institutional aid programs, and providing a fair, sensitive and confidential environment in which students can receive a variety of counseling and other resources to assist in making informed financial decisions.
