Happy Birthday HerCampus SFA.

The purpose of the HerCampus™ organization is to provide an online hub for women by providing content that is both a resource and a source of entertainment, highlighting campus news, events, interesting students, faculty, alumni, campus photos, and fashion and lifestyle content specifically tailored for women.
Founded by Stephanie Kaplan and fellow Harvard undergraduates Windsor Hanger and Annie Wang after winning Harvard’s business plan competition, HerCampus™ serves as an online hotspot for everything college women need to know about life on campus. The site features articles on Style, Health, Love, Life, Career and much more, updated on a daily basis and supplemented by campus-specific content from 200+ colleges and universities across the country.
Written entirely by college journalists, Her Campus™ highlights the best in student journalism while filling the critical hole in the media marketplace that responds directly to the needs of college women. HerCampus™ writers have been offered jobs and internships at many of the nation’s top publications including Glamour, Vogue, InStyle, Lucky, O magazine, MTV, The Washington Post, and Women’s Wear Daily, among others.
Since launching in September of 2009, HerCampus™ has been featured in The New York Times, Yahoo Finance, AOL Money College, CNN Money, CBS MoneyWatch, Business Insider, The Boston Globe, U.S. News & World Report, and on ABC News Now and Fox25 News, among others. Its founders, Kaplan, Hanger, and Wang were all named to Inc. Magazine’s 30 Under 30 Coolest Young Entrepreneurs, Glamour Magazine’s 20 Amazing Young Women, and The Boston Globe’s 25 Most Stylish Bostonians. In October 2001, Her Campus was named a 50K Gold Winner and “Best All-Around Team” in MassChallenge, the world’s largest startup competition.
