International Studies w/ Chinese Studies and Freshmen Housing

How good is Humboldt’s International Studies program? I am majoring in it with a Chinese Studies concentration. I also wanted to know how likely I would be able to receive housing. I don’t have the money to pay for the housing application right now so I will need to apply a little later. Do freshmen get rooms easier? This is really important as I am from Southern California and I won’t be able to have any place to stay if I don’t get a dorm. I haven’t accepted my offer yet in case I am on wait list so I can be able to also apply for other housing I know I will be able to get.
