Academic Programs

HSU offers 50 undergraduate degrees and about a dozen master’s programs, which fall into the colleges of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences; Professional Studies; and Natural Resources and Sciences.

(Given its location near the ocean and the Arcata Bay, it’s no surprise that HSU has an impressive oceanography research institute, which is home to a fully equipped marine lab and an oceanic vessel specifically for undergraduate research.

HSU also has nearly 20 other research institutes, including one that specializes in redwood forests, and another, named the Schatz Energy Research Center (SERC), where students look for clean, renewable energy options.)

Learning environment

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 committed to mentoring their students by including them in all kinds of experiments, lab research, and field work.

HSU students take that knowledge and apply it in the real world by doing their own seismic readings, photography, wildlife studies, social work and more. This is important for students’ future in the job market, whether you wind up in business, zoology or any field in between, requires strong entrepreneurial and critical thinking skills.”

Student activities

HSU has more than 180 campus clubs, or play for one of the 12 Humboldt State Jacks (short for lumberjacks) varsity sports teams, which compete in the NCAA Division II Great Northwest Athletic Conference.

Campus living

At HSU, 9 percent of the students live in college-owned, -operated or -affiliated housing and 91 percent of students live off campus.

The relatively new College Creek Complex houses 430 residents in its 97 apartments. Included in the Complex is College Creek Marketplace, a 15,000 square foot Great Hall, and an NCAA soccer field.

Testimonial

A survey of HSU Alumni indicated that three quarters of alumni said that attending HSU was a great decision, a vast majority agreed their education prepared them well for life-long learning, and they praised the campus for its quality academics and valuable relationships. Former students talked about the importance of personal connections with faculty, hands-on learning opportunities, and the strong sense of community at Humboldt.

Notes

[note2] according to a study on Niche.com.

[note1] Academic Ranking - The Princeton Review has named Humboldt State University one of the Best Colleges in the West in its“2013 Best Colleges: Region by Region” web feature.  HSU was one of 6 California State University campuses to earn the title, along with UC Berkeley, UC San Diego, and Stanford University, to name a few. Colleges earned distinction mainly due to their excellent academic programs. http://www.princetonreview.com/best-regional-colleges.aspx

[ * ] About Arcata - History of the Arcata

European-American settlers in 1850, Arcata and the Humboldt Bay region were the home of the Wiyot (The Wiyot are an indigenous people of California living near Humboldt Bay), the Wiyot lived along the lower Mad River, other local streams, and along Humboldt Bay. Their way of life was shaped by the remarkable surroundings of forested hills, bountiful streams and rivers, and the Pacific and Bay shores, which generously provided for both their survival and cultural needs.

Humboldt Bay was located by European-Americans for the first time in 1849. The discovery of gold in the Trinity and Klamath River regions resulted in large numbers of settlers coming to the area. The displacement, disease, violence, and cultural disintegration accompanying white settlement brought almost total annihilation to the Wiyot peoples.  Today, the Wiyots are, for the most part, associated with three Humboldt Bay area Rancherias (a small Indian settlement). They are involved in various tribal economic projects and in the revitalization of cultural traditions such as language, basket weaving, ceremonies, and reclaiming ancestral lands.

Arcata, first known as Union, was settled in the spring of 1850 as a supply center for the interior mining districts. The townsite at the foot of Fickle Hill was selected by the Union Company and subdivided into blocks and lots. A wharf was soon constructed into Arcata Bay with a horse-drawn railway connecting to the Plaza, where merchandising establishments supplied both the miners and growing numbers of residents.  The importance of gold, however, was soon eclipsed by lumbering. It was timber resources - particularly the vast, virgin forests of giant redwoods which covered the ridges and valleys along California's north coast - that sustained the development of Arcata through the 19th century and into the mid-twentieth century.  

By 1930 Arcata's population had reached 1,700 and was growing. A public water system and fire department came along in 1884, followed by the Arcata Union newspaper in 1886, electricity in 1895, railroad connections with San Francisco in 1914, the establishment of Humboldt State Normal School (now Humboldt State University) in 1914, and the Redwood Highway in 1925 [Susie Van Kirk: Touring Arcata's Architecture, 1988].

City’s historic structures

Many fine examples of both residential and commercial structures from Arcata's early history survive today. The Plaza itself, with the statue of McKinley (1906) at its center, dates from the town's beginnings, and recalls the "greens" of New England or

the town squares of the south. Although none of the original 1850s buildings around the Plaza remain, a variety of classical revival and false-front buildings from the turn-of-the century survive around its perimeter. The Plaza remains the city's commercial hub to the present day. Many of the commercial buildings have been restored, best exemplified by the Jacoby Building (1857), which pioneered modern-day historical preservation endeavors in the city with its restoration in 1977.

An inventory of Arcata's historical structures and sites in 1979 [Susie Van Kirk: Reflections of Arcata's History: eighty years of architecture, 1979] identified four early periods of residential building styles: settlement (1850-1885) Victorian (1885-

1900), Transitional (1900-1910) and Craftsman (1910-1930), in addition to the modern period (1930-present). The City's first historic preservation ordinance [Ordinance No. 935] was adopted by the City Council in 1980. Since that time, 85

structures or sites have been formally designated by ordinance as local historic landmarks. The City's Historic Landmarks, Neighborhood Conservation Areas , and Specific Plan Districts are shown on Figures HP-a and HP-b.
