I had an amazing experience as a student at HSU, from the very first semester I got there until I graduated. I remember always meeting new people and making friends wherever I went, everyone was just as motivated as I to live life in Arcata and excel as a student. The community really made me feel welcome and I had no problems leaving my southern Californian tendencies back home.
The professors and faculty were great and I could always count on help when I needed it. I learned just as much outside the classroom having conversations with professors, as I did in the classrooms themselves.
What stood out the most to me was the intense level of involvement in the local community. It was so amazing applying what I learned in the classrooms in the real world and have all of the support systems to do a great job. From my very first internship experience until my last projects and involvements, I always felt confident I could meet all of the deliverables and represent HSU and the School of Business.
If I had one piece of advice for incoming students, it would to get involved from the beginning! Live like a professional and spread the love!
