Welcome Back to Humboldt State!

Humboldt State is welcoming back students for the Fall Semester.

Move in day is coming.
August 20 is the first day of classes. This year’s move-in features a pop-up thrift store on Tuesday, Aug. 14 from 1 to 5 p.m. in the Cypress lawn, east of the Jolly Giant Commons.

A second pop up thrift store will take place during the Alternative Transportation Fair on Friday, Aug. 17 at 9:30 a.m. in the Redwood Bowl Plaza. The fair is part of the mandatory freshman orientation program.

The thrift store has a wide selection of materials for dorm rooms and small apartments, including bedding, clothes, kitchen supplies, shower caddies, and more. The items were collected during move out in spring of this year, cleaned and prepared to resell.

Proceeds from the sales go directly to the Oh SNAP! student food program. The sale will accept cash and credit cards.

Several events will take place to welcome HSU students back to campus:
