As we are approaching the start of a new school year, we are also approaching the start of a new year at HCCU. Many joined Her Campus to write but had no idea the impact it would have on their lives. Here are a few quotes from our members about why they joined and why you should follow in their footsteps! 

 

 

 Maeve Reilly

“When I was little, all I wanted was to be an author, but over the years, I lost touch with writing. I joined Her Campus CU in hopes to reignite my love for writing, and I found so much more! I’m incredibly grateful for the opportunities HCCU has given me and the doors it has opened for future career paths.”

Katelynn Hughes

“I’ve always enjoyed writing, but never had opportunities for fun writing I was passionate about in my STEM major. When I learned about HCCU I wanted to join to be a part of something different than my everyday life, and I fell in love with the club! I’m able to be creative, be surrounded by wonderful women, and have a platform to represent the things I adore.”

Emma D’Arcy

“I joined HCCU because I wanted to challenge myself. I loved writing but I never pushed myself any further than mediocre poetry from late nights in my dorm room. But joining has not only improved my writing, it’s shown me what can happen when I do push myself past my anxiety. I’ve made the best friends and being published on a national website is a feeling I can’t even describe. Please join!”

Kaitlyn Waynick

“I joined HC because it has all of my interests combined into one kickass publication. Writing, friendship, content creation, leadership opportunities, the list goes on and on! From the get-go I knew it was a place where all types of people could come together and find common ground in a love for working hard to create something great.”

Madeleine Abram

“Throughout my life, I’ve always had a passion for writing — as a child and teenager, I always dreamed of becoming an author. It wasn’t until college, however, that I fell in love with technology and digital creativity. Being a part of Her Campus magazine has allowed me to combine both of those passions while simultaneously developing friendships along the way.”

Ivie Maher

“I found Her Campus from their Instagram and I instantly knew it was something that I wanted to do. I went to the first meeting and the rest is history. I have met some of the best people and I know that I can always rely on them for anything. I have grown so much since joining and I will always be grateful for this organization!”

Kelley Laxton

“During my sophomore year, I decided it was time to join a club and stumbled across the Her Campus CU Boulder booth at the Get Involved Fair. I was immediately drawn to the organization. As a journalism major, I knew this would help build my portfolio and better my writing, but was unaware of how big HCCU would be in my life. It was the best decision I could have made in college.”

Kaitland Schaper

“I saw the booth for Her Campus at the Be Involved Fair my freshman year. It was one of the last ones I saw before I left, and it was so cute looking I had to check it out. When I found out it was a girl’s magazine, I knew I had to come to a meeting. I have always been passionate about writing and the community and aesthetic of our girl gang drew me in, and the feeling of acceptance and belonging made me stay!” 

We are so excited for the new school year and hope to see many new faces join us!

Maeve is in her last year as a Leeds School of Business student and as a Her Campus writer (sad). When she's not singing Disney show tunes while her roommates aren't home, she can be found thinking about the cold brew she had with breakfast, humming the Hamilton soundtrack, and thinking about Captain America.
