Happy Spring 2015!

Happy New Year, collegiettes™!

Whether you are returning to USF after a relaxing winter break or you are new to campus this semester, welcome! 

Our job here at Her Campus USF is to provide you with awesome articles to read, fun events to attend on campus and free goodies (coming soon).

Spring semester is such a great time because the new year always inspires people to start new things and become better versions of themselves. Head to the gym, eat healthier or simply start your day with a smile. No matter what your goal may be, rest assured Her Campus will be here to help along the way. But before we get into New Year’s Resolutions and crazy class schedules, let’s take some time to enjoy this first week.

You may currently be sitting in class accidentally writing “2014” on your paper as your professor goes over the syllabus, but don’t stress! Spring 2015 is going to be an awesome semester, especially with Her Campus USF in your corner.
