Humboldt State University Starts First Day of Fall Semester

ARCATA, Calif. (KIEM)- Today was the first day of classes at Humboldt State University. It was held exclusively online and the first day of in-person classes will be held on Monday, September 6th because students and faculty are encouraged to quarantine for the first two weeks. 

Two HSU student teachers recently tested positive from the Children’s Center on campus. The decision following HSU guidelines was to close the center until Tuesday, September 7th. They will be cleaning and sanitizing it in the meantime. 

All HSU students living on campus have moved into the residential halls. They are following the mask mandate by wearing masks in lobbies, hallways and any community space. Students in residential life are allowed in other buildings but students living off campus are not allowed in the dorms. Guests including family are also not allowed in the residential buildings. 

“This is my second year at Humboldt State but it’s my first year being on campus. I’m really excited being on campus to meet people but more importantly, meet my professors and communicate with them in person not just through email,” said Leila Rahimi, sophomore at Humboldt State University.
