If you could travel to any time period, when would it be?

Starr: I would have liked to thrive as a teen in the late-80s/early 90s.

What’s been your best Bentley experience thus far?

Brooke C: I’ve loved being a part of Service Learning! Thus far I’ve gotten involved with America Clicks and 2+2=5, and it’s been absolutely entrancing to watch the kids we work with grow and learn over the course of the semester.

Starr: Like Brooke, I love being a Program Manager in the Bentley Service Learning and Civic Engagement Center. I have been able to immerse myself into the Waltham community, which has helped make my 3 years so far at Bentley amazing. Also, another fav mem could be at the Fall concert this year when Lil Dicky gave me flowers and his number. That’s defs up there.

Allison: It’s hard thinking about just one experience that has been the best. This year I became a Resident Assistant, which was a huge deal for me. I’ve met so many great people and I’m so excited for the rest of the year!

Brooke J: Crushing it at NE-10 Champs with the Swim & Dive Team!

Caroline: I love Bentley so it’s kinda hard to choose one thing…but tbh any day that the therapy dogs are here is automatically a great day; I spend at least an hour with them every time they come to visit! OH ALSO, I spent a week in Italy as part of a class last Spring and it was hands down the BEST week of my life! Shoutout to Brooke C. for being my travel buddy :)

What’s the best part about being in Her Campus?

Brooke C: What’s so great about Her Campus is that our writers really have the liberty to write about anything that they want—I love reading our articles and seeing all of the unique voices, personalities, and ideas take center stage. It also doesn’t hurt that I get to work with such a remarkable Eboard team!

Starr: I love that Her Campus is such a great outlet for writers to express themselves

Allison: I love that the articles I used to read in high school, are now the articles that I get to write each week!

Brooke J: What’s better than being able to vent and express yourself in an article that makes your friends laugh, and get free stuff from sponsors for doing it? Not much. Join Her Campus.

Caroline: I’ll never forget seeing my name as the byline of an article for the first time—it was just so COOL! It’s definitely been a great way to express myself and enhance my skillset as a writer! Plus, who doesn’t love procrastinating homework by searching for the perfect gif for your article?
