Her Campus has truly shaped my college career thus far and has opened a lot of doors for me as a student, blogger and woman. It’s something I have been heavily involved in throughout my college experience, and something I genuinely love being a part of. Members of the Her Campus network have moved on to jobs and internships at Seventeen, Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and Vanity Fair, just to name a few!
Her Campus chapters serve as a section on HerCampus.com devoted to each school, so students can have an individualized experience on the website through the five main sections: Features, Blogs, Campus Celebrities, Campus Cuties and Snapshot.
I found out about Her Campus the summer before starting my freshman year of college, and the rest is history!
I was immediately intrigued and made it a point to find out more info about Her Campus, so I went ahead and applied to become a member of my chapter. Over the past two years, I have become more and more involved with Her Campus, not just within my chapter but within the company as a whole, speaking on panels at the Her Conference: High School in 2014 and 2015, attending 2014 and 2015 Boston College Fashion Week events, attending the 2014 and 2015 Her Conferences, held in New York City, and most recently and what I’m most proud of, becoming a Campus Correspondent of the Emerson College Chapter and being a summer intern at their Boston office.
While I didn’t begin the Her Campus chapter at Emerson, starting your own chapter is a great way to gain writing experience, participate in marketing campaigns and make network connections with other college journalists online and in person at the annual Her Conference each summer. If there’s already a chapter at your school, what are you waiting for? It’s time to get involved!
