HSU IS NUMBER ONE among medium-sized California schools in the Peace Corps’ 2013 Top College rankings.

It stands 16th nationally among more than 3,000 schools surveyed coast to coast.

Humboldt State remains the only school in California ranked among the Peace Corps’ top 25 medium-sized schools, those with 5,000-15,000 students.

The new rankings mark the eighth consecutive year HSU has won Peace Corps recognition for contributing among the highest number of volunteers serving abroad. Currently, 25 Humboldt State alumni are overseas with the corps.
Historically the campus has contributed 787 members since the Peace Corps was created in 1961.
