Dr. Rossbacher reflects on the movement of athletes and spectators exercising their right to protest during sporting events, including at Humboldt State University. Students remained seated as the National Anthem was performed during HSU's first home football game this season. This action was a symbol of solidarity with San Francisco 49er, Colin Kaepernick, for his ongoing protest against inequalities in our nation. Players from the HSU volleyball team have joined in the silent protest in a recent home game.

Humboldt State University was recently ranked number one in the country as the greatest small college for nature lovers. We are also on the list of the top 35 best outdoor schools in America, according to BestCollegeReviews.org. Dr. Rossbacher calls HSU to task  - to experience and enjoy the outdoors and earn the title of  “Outdoor National Champion” by logging the largest number of people and outdoor activities

.

From September 4th through October 15th, HSU students, faculty, and staff will have the opportunity to compete against 89 other colleges and universities in the Outdoor Nation Campus Challenge. Go outdoors - take a walk; take a hike; go skateboarding; go birding; restore a local trail; or search for 'virtual creatures' from an 'augmented reality'. Sign up online and log your activities using the Google or Apple App.

Now get out there and enjoy the outdoors!
