Heading Away to Humboldt

Forever Humboldt Crabs Game Family

More than 400 new HSU students, their families, and alumni came out to four Student Send-off Picnics in Oakland, Sacramento, Anaheim, and San Diego. The picnics helped welcome new students before they make their way to campus and gave them the chance to hear from alumni about their experience at HSU. Family members also met alumni and connected with other HSU families.
