Humboldt State University’s Centennial is a time to honor the University’s first century of achievement and to imagine what might be accomplished as its next century begins.

The Centennial Celebration is during the 2013-14 academic year. It kicks off with an event in August at the start of the school year.

Centennial activities are being coordinated by University Advancement, with recommendations from a Campus Centennial Advisory Committee. A number of campus-wide events are being organized centrally, as is publicity and a calendar. Most of the events and activities are organized by various units across campus.

If you are a student, faculty or staff member with an idea for a Centennial activity, contact the Dean or Vice President in your area. If you are an alumnus or friend of HSU with ideas or feedback, please use our comment form.
