What is Her Campus?

Her Campus originated in 2009 by three Harvard students, and has been an excellent media outlet targeted towards postsecondary women of all kinds! Her Campus has become the #1 online publication towards women, with its multiple different brands, such as College Fashionista, Spoon University and Her20s, and their influencer communities Campus Trendsetters and InfluencerHer Collective.

The Her Campus Chapter Network is where our organization falls and is one of the 400 chapters across the world! We are grateful and proud to announce that Her Campus Wilfrid Laurier falls into the top 5% of all the 400 Her Campus chapters! We encourage our members to be ourselves and work to empower university students with the content we produce and the events we hold! Her Campus helps develop skills related to journalism, editing, marketing and event planning, so there are many benefits to joining a club like this!

Who can join?

All undergraduate students who are enrolled at Laurier's Waterloo campus and welcome and encouraged to apply, no matter your year, program or where you'll be during this semester! We have changed our format to being entirely online due to the remote learning restrictions, so you can log in from anywhere! We focus more on topics that target the female population, but we encourage anyone, regardless of your gender orientation, to apply if you are interested! 

What positions are you hiring for?

Our writing team is responsible for all our super original and creative content on our site! Writers are expected to write one 450+ word article a week, on any topic of their choosing!

Nope! We encourage anyone who is interested and who has passion and enthusiasm to apply! We encourage our members to learn new skills and push themselves past their boundaries to get all they can out of our organization! We have some more competitive positions in which experience would help, and in our applications we look for creative and original ideas, but do not require any experience!!

What is the time commitment like?

We ask that all our team members attend our weekly virtual meetings, that range from 30 minutes to an hour each week! Our meetings are held at a time that works for the majority of the members, but we provide accommodations whenever needed if other circumstances or commitments arise! Other than our weekly meetings, each team has its own time commitments but should not be longer than 2 hours a week!

Especially with our strange year, getting involved is more important than ever, and Her Campus is a great way to do this!!
