Campus Correspondent: Kate Berry

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

As the semester comes to a close and the seniors’ senioritis starts to hit, it’s time to recognize and acknowledge individuals on campus that are close to home. Ever wonder who’s responsible for those funny Instagrams, tweets and posts from the UMaine Her Campus accounts? Kate Berry is one of our Campus Correspondents at our UMaine chapter, and she also happens to be leaving us this spring as she graduates UMaine. Since obviously we’re sad about this, we chose to dedicate our next few Campus Profiles to our Campus Correspondents, the girls behind UMaine Her Campus!

Her Campus

You are free to speak your mind about anything that young collegiettes are talking about. Besides the amazing perks (free goodies sent twice a semester), it really brings the school together and makes it feel more like a community.
