5 Reasons You Absolutely Need To Write For HerCampus

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Butler chapter.



So you want to write for HerCampus, do you? Here are 5 reasons you absolutely neeeeeed to write for us.


1. You get to write literally whatever you want.



Seriously, the possibilities are endless. One time, I wrote a piece about why I hate bonsai trees. You can read it here (shameless self promo). It’s fantastic. Want to rant about your roomate? Write a piece about it. Saw a really cute dog today? Write a piece about it.


2. You get to consider finding ridiculous gifs for your pieces “work”.



“Rae why are you constantly looking at stupid gifs?” “Fuck off, it’s for an assignment, Jarred.” – A real thing that has occurred. But seriously you get to spend like 20 minutes trying to find the perfect reaction gif and still feel uber productive. It’s great.


3. We get free shit.



HerCampus HQ will occasionally send us care packages and it’s the cutest. One time we got sunglasses. I freakin’ love sunglasses.


4.HerCampus is run by collegiate women.



HerCampus was actually started by three badass women during their undergrad at Harvard. Go women!


5. We are the freakin’ best.



So what are you waiting for? Join the squad. You can thank me later.
