March is Women’s History Month, and following a prolonged period of oppression, it is crucial for women to create a sense of community where we can support each other’s growth. One of the most effective avenues for finding this space is through women-centric clubs and organizations within schools and colleges. Let’s explore five organizations dedicated to women’s empowerment and their chapters at San José State University! 

Her Campus at SJSU

Her Campus is a nationwide online community for college women, and SJSU proudly hosts a chapter. Through various events and initiatives such as Secret Sisters mentorship, Galentine’s Day celebrations, painting sessions, and coffee meetups, HC creates a supportive and empowering community on campus. Whether you’re interested in joining the writers’ team, community engagement team, event planners team, marketing team, or designers team, there is something for everybody. As a current member of Her Campus at SJSU, we welcome you to become a part of our inclusive community during your college journey.

Girls Who Code (GWC) strives to dismantle the gender barrier in STEM, with a particular focus in technology. With workshops and networking events both at SJSU and beyond, members are immersed in a supportive environment of like-minded women.

Hey! I'm Sanjana, but you can call me Sanju. I’m currently a Communication Studies student at SJSU. I love food, especially frozen desserts and tiramisu. Boba is my go-to drink, and I'm always down to explore new boba stores and flavors (though mango-passionfruit green tea remains my favorite). I'm actively building my online presence on Instagram and YouTube, sharing my journey as a student. Through these platforms, I aim to connect with other students who are also pursuing higher education. I also aspire to launch a relevant blog and sell handmade stationery someday. In my spare time, you'll find me engaged in writing, reading (particularly YA fiction), and dancing. As a K-pop fan, I mostly participate in K-pop dance covers, and my favorite groups include NCT, Stray Kids, and ITZY. As a music enthusiast in general, I vibe with various genres. Ultimately, my life goal is to explore and travel the world!
