What fictional place would you most love to visit? This is not so much a fictional place, but I would want to attend the Netherfield Ball in Pride and Prejudice.

Why should someone join HC? It’s a great support network and place to share your opinions! If you’ve ever dreamed of having a podcast, Her Campus would be a great fit for you.
