Getting Involved

Associated Students

The Associated Students of Humboldt State University is an auxiliary of the University that advocates the student perspective in the University decision making process. The AS Council is elected each spring and serves as the officially recognized voice of the student body.

Clubs & Activities

Clubs and organizations provide students with a great opportunity to be involved on campus, meet new people, and strengthen their academic career through extra-curricular activities. The Clubs & Activities office supports our student run clubs and organizations by providing opportunities for leadership development, assisting with event management, and by serving as the liaison between the university and the student group.

Multicultural Center

The MultiCultural Center (MCC) is a dynamic and inclusive learning community that supports students in their academic and personal journeys at HSU. We do this by creating community, a home away from home and a safe place to Explore, Experience, Express, Empower and Engage. The MCC is committed to retention and student success by providing co-curricular opportunities for leadership development, social justice advocacy, identity exploration and cross-cultural learning experiences. We are a student-centered program that fosters acceptance and respect of all people.

Recreational Sports

The Recreational Sports department houses both Intramurals and Sport Clubs. The Intramural Sports Program at HSU is designed to offer students, faculty/staff and community members recreational activities in which they can participate on campus. Intramural Sports offers team sports in a variety of competitive levels, depending on the participants' skill level and interests. Sport Clubs provide students with leadership opportunities and a more rigorous athletic experience. Teams practice 2-3 times per week and compete against other off-campus clubs and Universities

Youth Educational Services (Y.E.S.)

Youth Educational Services is Humboldt State University’s 47-year-old student directed community service-learning program.  Y.E.S. consists of approximately 300-400 student volunteers engaging in 12-16 community service programs per semester.  The program employs 5 students as Program Consultants and approximately 28 students serving as student directors for the 12-16 programs. These programs range from mentorships and advocacy to programming for seniors and youth from at-risk communities. Collectively, student volunteers average 20,000 service hours annually, providing services to 1,500 children and adults as well as 30 community organizations and schools.  Y.E.S. volunteers serve as allies and provide resources in an effort to end the cycle of oppression in the off campus community.
