Get the Scoop of Her Campus Utah!

Joining Her Campus has changed my life for the better and certainly enhanced my undergraduate career tenfold. I have finally found a place on this huge campus where I can voice my thoughts and opinions openly and, in a judgment-free environment. Her Campus is an artfully crafted bridge between the vastness of our giant campus and the media world.

To introduce you a little more intimately, here are some frequently asked questions:

1. What are you about?

A brief message from the queens at HC corporate: “We’re basically a community of BFFs that love to tag each other in memes, talk about sex, and share the best skincare tips. We keep up with celeb news and feminist politics (reproductive justice anyone?), and we’ve got the insider info you need for landing that dream internship or making the perfect mug-cake in your dorm.

Here’s the deal: Her Campus is here to make your life easier while being 100% real with you at all times. We encourage, inspire, and celebrate. We provide no judgment, just real talk. We’re like, kind of your best friend.”

Basically, Her Campus thrives on its members' successes, desires, and continuous contributions to our collective voice. Your voice matters. Your stories and experiences matter. Your unique hearts and minds matter to us.

We welcome undergraduate students of all gender identities who have a passion for writing, photography, and videography and a desire to share their unique voice with others in a creative way.

Your time commitment is whatever you can give each week. We do ask that you come to our weekly meetings on Wednesdays at 6 PM in the Union Den, but as far as your writing and/or photography commitment we are flexible and will work with you –if you communicate with us. You can put in from one to as many as six hours each week…or more should your muses inspire you!
