College Women: Who We Serve
She’s independent but self-aware, supportive of her fellow girls but has a dash of rebellion, an achiever who also sometimes just wants to take a nap. She’s as interested in trying out a new face mask as she is in keeping up with feminist politics and celeb news. She longs to be better at #adulting but doesn’t take herself too seriously during this maddening, amazing, life-changing experience called college. She always laughs and sometimes cries at the drama in her life, supported by her BFFs every step of the way.
Her Campus: Who We Are to Her
We are her ultimate BFF and the go-to destination for all things college women. We provide her with everything from cutting-edge style tips, to advice on how to land a killer internship, to the latest news on the fight for reproductive justice. We're the big sister who’s gone through it all before and has the insider info she needs. We're the friend who's there to make her life easier while hitting her with the hard truths she may not want to hear, but are totally necessary. We encourage, inspire, and celebrate. We provide no judgment, just real talk. We help her build her armor to slay every day, and proudly help her find her way to the boss babe she is becoming.

Her Campus Media founders Stephanie Kaplan Lewis, Annie Wang, and Windsor Hanger Western met as Harvard undergraduates while running a student publication for Harvard women. The publication soared in popularity with college women across the country, who began asking for advice on starting something like it at their own schools. Annie, Stephanie, and Windsor had the idea to build something similar on a national level to serve college women everywhere, and in 2009 they won Harvard's business plan competition with their vision for Her Campus Media. They've been building the company into the number one media and marketing company for college women ever since, and Her Campus Media remains 100% women-owned and women-run today.
