How do our undergraduates experience Humboldt State University? Here are findings from HSU's 2017 participation in the National Survey on Student Engagement (NSSE), an annual survey that collects information at hundreds of four-year colleges and universities about first-year and senior students' participation in programs/activities that institutions provide for their learning and personal development. The results provide an estimate of how undergraduates spend their time and what they gain from attending college. Learn more about our students and how they engage with our campus, how it compares with other CSU’s, and how that relates to the perceptions of instructional staff in this three-part series presented by Dr. Lisa Castellio, Associate Vice President of the Office of Institutional Effectiveness.
