Meet the Newest Spring Executive Board!

That is right! Her Campus is back at Elon University for 2021! Starting Spring semester, a new executive board is ready to relaunch Elon's Her Campus chapter and get the student body involved and excited!

I am a part of Her Campus Elon’s Executive Board as the Senior Editor. My team and I have spent so much time working on Her Campus’ relaunch. We have worked together to gather a strong team, find dedicated and amazing writers, and plan fun events! I am eager to share all of this with you!

I am here to tell you about Her Campus’ history, our Executive roles on campus, and what we are looking forward to this Spring semester! Her Campus started back in 2009 when three Harvard undergraduates wanted to create a magazine that they thought was missing for college women: an online platform, written by and focusing on empowering all women. Thus, Her Campus was formed!

Now, Her Campus is the No. 1 media site for college women written by the best college journalists! Her Campus has over 360+ chapters from 11 countries. My team and I could not be more proud to stand with such an incredible magazine and fellow group of women. Her Campus is EVERYWHERE. Seriously. You can find us with the InfluenceHer Collective with 4,000 millennial influencers, Her Conference®, College Fashion Week®, High School Ambassador Program, Campus Trendsetters, Her Campus Shop, and read The Her Campus Guide to College Life. We are also on Instagram so follow us at @HerCampusStyle, @HerCampusBeauty, and @HerCampusFoodie.

Our magazine has a range of topics accessible with just a click of a finger. We will write about anything you are interested in: from skincare tips, to top TikTok trends, to famous memes, to politics and more! As Her Campus leaders on Elon University’s campus, we uphold Her Campus’ values inside and outside the classroom. We have all been assigned different roles to help with the relaunch and each woman on our team is creative, confident, passionate and amazing (I love them all!). Keep reading to meet the newest Her Campus Executive board! We can’t wait to all do college together!

I have lots of experience helping women feel empowered and the process of relaunches, which includes working with Bumble last year as the Campus Media Manager.

Role: Events Director

Description: Our strongest chapters plan events on and/or off-campus throughout the semester, so having an Events Director is essential. She will plan all events, seek out venues and sponsors, determine giveaways, and work closely with the Marketing & Publicity Director to publicize all events. 

Why did you join Her Campus Elon? “I wanted to join Her Campus because I don’t think there are enough platforms that empower women or many places to go to find a community where a female can express and talk about the many uncomfortable things that come with being a woman. It's women empowering women and that is something I really value. I am very passionate about writing, especially about topics that pertain to everyday life and issues that are uncomfortable but need to be addressed. I also love organizing events especially when they can bring people together. I am excited to work with such a fun, passionate and talented group of girls whom I will hopefully be able to leave some kind of lasting impression with at Elon once we all graduate.”

Her Campus was one of the first clubs/organizations I joined and I distinctly remember joining Her Campus as a pivotal moment in my college career. Her Campus gave me a platform to discuss what I loved most, beauty and fashion. Being a part of the relaunch was an opportunity I quickly jumped at. It was the chance to pay an ode to an organization that sparked my interest and guided me in my career path. I am excited to use the Her Campus platform to create positive change here at Elon.
