Can I get a #happydance, or what!?
There are so many reasons to join Her Campus at your college, such as developing writing skills, gaining experience in online journalism, promoting girl power, and more! Students interested in marketing or PR can gain writing experience, network with other college journalists and participate in marketing campaigns with national clients. Leading a Her Campus chapter at your school also offers the opportunity for you and your team to network with members of our 270+ chapters around the world at Her Conference each summer! Online, a Her Campus chapter is a section on HerCampus.com devoted to individual colleges and univeristies around the world with five content areas (Features, Blogs, Campus Celebrities, Campus Cuties, Snapshot) so readers from each school can have an individualized experience on HerCampus.com. Offline, a chapter is also a community of collegiettes on your campus interested in journalism, magazines, writing, event planning, public relations, social media, marketing, business/entrepreneurship and more.
I have to say, though, that my personal favorite reason why you should join HC is to meet a great group of awesome young women (new besties, anyone!?) who have unique talents and passions. From horseback riding to photography to the biological sciences and more, there is no one "typical" young woman who joins Her Campus. What unites us together as a group, however, is that we are a fun-loving bunch of girls who are passionate about our college years and empowering others to enjoy their early 20s!
Her Campus is so much more than just a club - I have so many memories of baking cupcakes together for charity on a Friday night, hosting jewelry sales in the student center, getting tons of free samples at club meetings, and just talking to each other about life on campus, in general. In fact, I would not be blogging here today if not for Her Campus! Writing articles opened up my eyes to the world of online publication and journalism for an internet audience - I loved it so much, that I just had to keep writing! It truly kickstarted this personal blog of mine… who knows, maybe HC can help you to discover new passions - it certainly did, in my case!
If your college campus doesn't have a Her Campus chapter, you should definitely start one with a few of your close friends! <3 As the person in charge of the group, you will be known as a "Campus Correspondent". What is a Campus Correspondent, you ask!? Check out the info graphic below!
The application due date to create a Her Campus chapter at your college is August 15th.
