Editor’s note: Osprey chose to keep the names of the rookies private.
It was Saturday, Aug. 4 and the Humboldt State men’s soccer team held its annual initiation for nine new players. The rookies wore nothing but adult diapers and were forced to take turns holding a dildo at a house party in Arcata. The teammates played drinking games together, but none of them would go on to play a soccer game this season.

When University Police Chief Lynne Soderberg played outfield for the women’s softball team at Humboldt State in 1979, the pre-season activities consisted of field hockey and shoe-shining parties. The women liked to look sharp for their games.
“There was absolutely no hazing when I played softball for HSU,” Soderberg said of her own experience.
Soderberg said hazing does most likely happen at the university, and the definitions can vary. According to Soderberg, the educational code of student conduct outlines hazing as demoralizing, demeaning and consisting of emotional detriments. Soderberg said some people consider hazing forced submission of another person, while others may consider it a rite of passage or tradition.
A look into HSU’s faculty evaluation system
By Melissa Coleman
Laura Hahn, a communications professor at HSU, pulls two heavy binders off a shelf in her office. They contain the files she used to get tenure. In it are evaluations from other professors, letters of recommendation and hundreds of student evaluations from her previous classes.
Not all students agree or realize that the administration and their professors take student evaluations seriously. A study in the Journal of Higher Education last year found that 99 percent of students at Western Illinois University, which has an evaluation system like HSU’s, believe that instructors do not usually change their teaching behavior as a result of student suggestions in evaluations.
But ensuring an abundance of native plants was not on project manager Kristi Janowski’s short check list when she took responsibility for the project. Instead, Janowski watched the construction be completed from afar. Decisions about what to plant and where were made by Bay Area design firm Cottong & Taniguchi. Designated the “Campus Landscape Architect” for 2007-08, the firm was recognized statewide for its designs on the project.
“We haven’t really given much thought to it,” Janowski said, adding that she couldn’t speak to the early phases of the planning process. “When I got the drawings the trees that were installed were already there. I wasn’t directly involved with that.”
As the grounds and landscaping manager for Plant Operations, Doug Kokesh manages a staff of three full-time gardeners and eight student assistants who work 20 hours a week or less. Kokesh spends most of his time figuring out ways to distribute the workload. With a campus that spans some 144 acres, the scheduling logistics can be stressful, especially when it includes the removal of dozens of non-native plants.
Along with the everyday tasks that go with maintaining the vast amounts of greenery around campus – including mowing lawns, trimming trees and shrubs and removing weeds – Kokesh will also need to remove those plants around the Campus Apartments that will likely die from the climate conditions that exist for much of the year along the North Coast.

The sun has yet to peak over the horizon and the smell of coffee fills the cab of a government pickup truck. “See that?” says Nina Nahvi as she points out the window. “It’s a bald eagle.”
Nahvi and Skylar Giordano are HSU wildlife majors who spend their Sundays trekking out into the redwoods of Del Norte County. They set and maintain animal capture cameras.
The use of motion activated digital capture cameras allows the team to observe wild animals in their natural habitat without a human presence. This data allows scientists to see if carnivores are utilizing mountain roads to hunt for food.
