Looking for more ways to stay up-to-date at MNSU? Check out the MNSU chapter of Her Campus’s website at hercampus.com/school/mnsu.com. Her Campus is an online magazine written by women for women. 

Nicole Hallman, Vice President of Her Campus stated, “Our goal is to help assist women in becoming successful personally and professionally.”

Through their nationally recognized online magazine, club members can have the opportunity to be writers, editors, event planners, social media coordinators, and to fulfill various leadership positions should they choose to run. 

Zoe Suski, the Associate Editor and Secretary of Her Campus had never been in a leadership position prior to Her Campus, and now she holds two! She stated, “It’s really not as hard as you would think- you just have to take the jump!” 

Her Campus’s mission statement is to “Empower women, bring them together and influence them in their personal and professional lives.” Suski believes they are living up to this statement and added, “The best part of Her Campus is being a part of an organization that empowers women, something you don’t see very often in society. It’s good to have a support system and a great group of girls that you can turn to in times of need.” 

Her Campus members also participate in outreach work and community service. Some activities members have participated in this year are adopt-a-highway, and volunteering at local soup kitchens where members prep and serve food for members of the community. 

They are also planning to host a women’s conference in the spring which will feature guest speakers from distinguished women who would like to share their advice and accomplishments. 

Hallman also stated, “Women who are interested should join because of the different experiences that our members gain. For example, through our fundraising members are able to learn behind the scenes work of what goes into an organization. Her Campus is also valuable because it teaches members organization, time management, and meeting deadlines; skills that they will need in a professional career. Joining Her Campus will help women gain experience in the professional world, learn to empower one another, and build connections through an organization that they enjoy.”

The club meets every Tuesday night at 7:30 p.m. in the CSU room 238. You can also apply on their website or reach out via email at mnsu@hercampus.com.

If you would like to support Her Campus, the organization is currently hosting a fundraiser selling Krispy Kreme donuts. You can pre-order yours now through Nov. 23 at https://squareup.com/store/hercampusmnsu/. Pre-ordered donuts will be delivered to campus Nov. 27, along with additional donuts that will be available to purchase.
