6 Reasons to Join Her Campus at the University of Utah

            College. It becomes so much more than a place to get a degree or to figure out what future you want to have. It becomes your home for 4-5 years. It holds your friendships that you’ve formed with people who grew up in a different way than you did. It is a conglomeration of highlighted essays, beaten up textbooks, Lilly Pulitzer planners and emails from professors. It’s a weird state of mind where people work hard for a GPA and play hard because, well, college. You can spend your school years in one of two ways: being involved or being uninvolved. How do you want to spend your years?
