The new Crystal Light candy you won't want to miss!

4/11/2012

I’ve never been one for hard candy. Anything and everything chocolate has always been my kryptonite. I’d eat a Twix or Hershey bar any day over a bag of Skittles or Runts (remember those??).
 
But the world as I know it – or at least my world of candy preferences – was turned upside down last week when I popped a Crystal Light Hard Candy into my mouth. For a second, I thought I had take a sip of a Crystal Light drink. But no, the solid candy in my mouth was proof enough – a candy that captured the taste of a drink so perfectly. Perhaps I’ve found a new guilty pleasure…

Valentine's Day Contest Winners!

2/14/2012

We asked our readers to tell us their favorite Valentine's Day memories and they certainly had some fantastic stories! We picked our favorite stories -- check them out below! Thanks to all those who participated! Happy Valentine's Day from HC Illinois:)

"I have three favorite Valentines day memories, all with the same boy. I moved here from England my freshman year, and we began dating. I remember getting really homesick around January since all my friends were together and it was my first New Years away from them and he was so sweet to me. That first Valentines day we had a 'who can get a cheesier card' contest and he found the BEST one with Lady and the Tramp, which is embarrassingly my favorite movie. The next year he bought me the cutest bear and covered his room is Hersheys Kisses, which was adorable since we had agreed not to do anything for Valentines day. Sadly we broke up, and he went abroad, but probably the best Valentines Day memory is that even though we were broken up and not really speaking, and he was in a different country with better things to think about, he sent me chocolate covered strawberries to my sorority house, just as a friend. Whadddaguy :)" -- Maria Wieromiejczyk

Letter from the President

11/22/2011

Hi HC Illinois readers!
 
First of all, let me start by thanking you for continuing to read the work we put out each week. The HC Illinois staff works tirelessly to provide you with engaging, applicable, intelligent, useful and entertaining content that we truly think will benefit you. So thank you for continuing to read and giving us several reasons each week to continue our efforts. We really do appreciate it.
 
The best way we could think to thank you, though, was not by this written note. Instead, to show our appreciation to you - our dedicated, inspiring readers, we decided to plan an event that would be fun for you! We wanted the event to bring you all the things you love: fashion, health, music, entertainment, beauty and enjoyment.
 
So the other exec members and I, with the help of our amazing HC girls and an Illini Public Relations Committee, brainstormed and eventually executed the idea for a holiday-themed wellness event that will give you a perfectly-timed mental break before finals start up. The event, “Take a Holiday with Her Campus,” will take place on Wednesday, November 30th from 6-9 pm in Multipurpose Room 7 at the Activities and Recreation Center (ARC).
