Faculty Natalie Arroyo, Environmental Science & Management:

Environmental Science & Management Instructor and Eureka City Councilmember Natalie Arroyo was recently named Assembly District 2 2019 Woman of the Year. Arroyo was selected by Assemblyman Jim Wood.

From Wood’s office:

Today Assemblymember Jim Wood (D-Santa Rosa) honors Assembly District 2’s 2019 Woman of the Year, Natalie Arroyo. Every year each Assemblymember has the privilege of selecting someone to be honored who serves their community with dedication and distinction. The day includes personal recognition during the legislative session in the Assembly Chambers and a luncheon. “Today we have the opportunity to recognize Natalie for her achievements and commitment to making a difference in the Eureka community,” said Wood.

Natalie lives and works on the North Coast in Eureka and was recently re-elected to her second term on the Eureka City Council. As a Councilperson, Natalie helped complete Eureka’s nearly 7-mile waterfront trail which is part of the California Coastal Trail, supported a Strategic Arts Plan that has demonstrated the value of the arts community in Humboldt County and initiated the return of 200 acres of culturally important land to the Wiyot Tribe. Representing Eureka, Natalie also serves on the board of the Humboldt Transit Authority.

By day, Natalie is a senior planner with the Natural Resources division of Redwood Community Action Agency, and is an enlisted member of the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve, stationed at Humboldt Bay – and that’s when she isn’t lecturing at Humboldt State University.

Because of her passion for trails and fisheries health, Natalie serves on the board of the Humboldt Trails Council, and served on the board of the Salmonid Restoration Federation, a statewide organization dedicated to restoring native California salmon and trout.

“Natalie is more than an inspiration in Humboldt County,” said Wood. “Her career, her elected office, her service in the Coast Guard and her volunteer work demonstrates her amazing 24-7 commitment to public service.”

Transfer Support Mob in Communication Communication

Transfer Support Mob in Communication

Students who transfer into Humboldt State often face the burden of a new school with the assumption that they know the norms and practices of university life.  The Department of Communication provides peer-to-peer support for transfer students in the form of the Transfer Support Mob.  Every semester the TSM gather to answer questions, provide guidance and help incoming transfer students to navigate life at Humboldt State.

On January 28, 2019, almost a dozen current Communication Majors (most of them former transfer students) gathered to discuss housing, health care, food, exercise, music, classes and professors with the Spring 2019 transfer cohort.
