Her Campus is the Girl Gang You’re Looking For: Gobblerfest 2018 Recap

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Virginia Tech chapter.

The energy at Gobblerfest 2018 was electric (no I don’t regret the very horrible, stupidly bad joke)! In case you missed this year’s Gobblerfest, didn’t get to visit our table or just want to know who we are, this is the article for you. The forty-five minutes we were on the Drillfield were insane, filled with social media challenges and goodies! We loved seeing everyone at Gobblerfest and can’t wait for y’all to connect with us!

The exact moment they announced gobblerfest is suspended!  

Her Campus is an online magazine for college women, written and run by college women. With content on beauty, fashion, lifestyle, culture and opinion pieces, the Her Campus mission is to empower and inspire collegiettes. A collegiette is “a college woman who is on top of her game – strategically career-minded, distinctly fashionable, socially connected, academically driven, and smartly health-conscious, who endeavors to get the most out of her college experience on every level” (Her Campus). Virginia Tech’s Her Campus Chapter is a Pink level chapter, meaning we are one of the top performing college chapters out of over 300 chapters! There are multiple ways to be involved on our team through writing, editing, social media and event planning. If two positions interest you, apply for both!

Just a funky lil girl trying to put my thoughts into relatable words!!! I've had the dream of being Anne Hathaway's character in Devil Wears Prada since I was like three. Maybe without being someone's bitch, but you know, everyone has to start somewhere.
