Dear HSU Students,

            It is great to be back on campus and I hope you enjoyed your winter break. We are excited about the programming opportunities available to you in spring 2019! Our programs are designed to Engage, Empower, and Enrich your living and learning experience at HSU. If you have not heard, I extended my employment as your Interim Vice President of Student Affairs until June 30, 2020. I look forward to continuing my service to the students, faculty, and staff at Humboldt State University. If you see me on campus please stop and introduce yourself. Make sure to follow me on Instagram .  Here are a few things you should know about or do the first few weeks of the spring 2019 semester:

  • The Home Away from Home potluck is at the D St Neighborhood Center from 5:00pm-7:00pm, on Sunday, February 10, 2019. Enjoy a free meal provided by community members. The mission of “Home Away from Home” is to bring community members and students together, building bridges to make our community stronger.
  • The After Library Hours Study Space is open in Nelson Hall East 113. It opens at 10 pm and will stay open until 7:30 am, providing you a study space option after the University Library closes.
  • Student Access Services have relocated to the Campus Events Field,  Veterans Enrollment and Transition Services, Testing Services, and the Student Disability Resource Center.
  • Get in the daily habit of reviewing your HSU email (the University uses your official HSU email account to send useful information), and your myHumboldt home page, especially “My Announcements” & “To Do List.”.  Be aware of  Academic Deadlines
  • Download the RAVE-GUARDIAN APP ; it allows users to send automatic alerts in cases of emergencies to family, friends, and University Police.
  • Student Health & Wellbeing Services is excited to announce that they now have Walk-In Wednesdays at CAPS (second floor of the Student Health & Counseling (SHC) building) from 10:00am-4:00pm. First come-first served.
  • I am delighted to announce that Francisco “Frank” Herrera has joined the Cultural Centers for Academic Excellence as the MultiCultural Center Coordinator.  Frank has a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies from San Diego State University and a Master of Education: Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) from the University of San Diego.  Frank brings a depth of enthusiasm and years of experience in higher education leadership. The Division of Student Affairs is thrilled that Frank is a part of the HSU community, the CCAE and the Humboldt Community.

        I look forward to seeing you at the Home Away from Home potluck on Sunday, February 10!
