Winter Wishes Brings Holiday Cheer to Community

For several years dedicated staff members at Humboldt State have spread holiday cheer by gathering toys for local children. This year Forever Humboldt and Forever Humboldt Students expanded the effort by teaming up with individuals and local agencies to provide gifts for more than 130 local children in need.

The Forever Humboldt community sponsored children, wrapped gifts, loaded delivery trucks, and delivered gifts throughout the county.

Forever Humboldt staff extend a big thanks to everyone who helped make this year’s Winter Wishes a success! The program is something to be proud of, and we look forward to sharing Winter Wishes with even more children next year.

Class of 3 Million

The CSU and HSU need the voices of our 3 million alumni to make sure today's students have the same access we did to a high-quality public education. You can do this as a member of the CSU's Class of 3 Million yearbook by becoming an advocate for our university.

By signing up to be an HSU advocate, you’ll receive occasional email communications about key legislative issues when the CSU needs the help of our alumni and friends. You can also help contact state elected officials via email, letter, or phone to support their campus and the CSU.

Once you've signed up, you’ll earn an Advocate Badge for your profile to show you’ve taken key actions to support HSU.
