What is Her Campus?

The story of Her Campus began with three women Harvard students named Windsor, Annie and Stephanie in 2009. These women realized there was a major gap in the media market for university women. Therefore, they created Her Campus, an online magazine made by university women for university women. Since then, Her Campus has grown to be the #1 global community for university women, as there are more than 380 chapters across the world! 

Her Campus is an inclusive online magazine that focuses on topics like fashion, beauty, health, career and many more! Her Campus provides university students the space to learn to create and publish editorial content, learn social media skills, host events, develop career skills, and become part of a bigger community.
