The Her Campus Media Welcome Tent

After the attendees checked in at the “Welcome Tent” and learned about what Her Campus was, learned more about Her Campus at Winthrop and followed HCWU on social media, they got their first giveaway of the day, which was an adorable HC Tour monogrammed bag filled with goodies like nail polish, lipstick and coupons.

The "Denim Daze" at the Aéropostale Tent  

The next station was all things Aéropostale and all things denim — and students from all over campus were lined up to participate in the “Denim Daze," wanting to have a chance to try on jean jackets, snap some photos and enter the Aéro social media giveaway!

Once there was a photo posted on a various social media platform of their choosing, they were eligible to to win a coupon from the Aéropostale vending machine. There was buzz all week about this station after two different girls won a “$100-off” coupon from the machine and other students won $5, $10 and $20-off coupons.

The Tretorn Tent

Right in the middle of the set up was the next tent for Tretorn, and just like the other tents, this one was equally favored by the students. The activation’s design was so unique and creative — between the display of the companies’ sneakers, the ping pong table and the shoelace gum ball machine, everyone was impressed.

Those students who chose to play a game of ping pong were entered in a chance to win a coupon for their own Tretorn shoes and have the opportunity to get a complimentary giveaway shoelace. Both the males and the females loved this station and stood in line waiting to play and have a chance to win!

The "Sublime Bronze Destination" L'Oréal Paris Activation

One of the last stations to enter fun giveaways was the L'Oréal Paros Tent. This section helped to completely transform Winthrop’s lawn into a relaxing oasis with comfortable swing chairs, plants and a ton of the awesome L'Oréal Paris products displayed. Winthrop students took turns posing with the chairs and the amazing background for posting on various social media platforms and entering a chance to win a tanning wipe to help them enter into their own island oasis.

It was the perfect opportunity for students to meet up with their friends and snap some photos.
