Humboldt State University Students interested in Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing may become members of the HSU Student Chapter of ASPRS, the professional society for geospatial professionals. Members of the HSU Student chapter receive a monthly subscription to the society’s journal as well as a variety of scholarship and internship opportunities. Our chapter brings guest speakers to campus as well as organizing student trips to the national meeting. In recent years HSU chapter members have attended meetings in Portland, OR, Washington D.C., St. Louis MO, and Anchorage, AK. The HSU Student Chapter is one of the few in the western United States, providing a unique opportunity to become involved in the community of geospatial professionals while still a student. Over the years many students established important first job contacts via their participation in our student chapter.
