Her Campus is a hit on our campus
The females of Seton Hall have been buzzing about a new outlet for news and entertainment at Seton Hall. The Her Campus Seton Hall chapter launched on March 31 and has only picked up popularity amongst students across campus.
Director of Marketing for Her Campus Media Chelsea Evans explained Her Campus is currently at 260 schools all over the world and just published their first book- “The Her Campus Guide To College Life.”
Sophomore diplomacy major Rachel Wyncoop and senior public relations major Rebecca Gramuglia brought Her Campus to Seton Hall as co-founders of the new chapter. Since the launch date, the chapter has spread like wildfire and students are engaged in the writing of women and their beliefs about the happenings on campus.
Junior communication studies major Mawuena Sedodo is excited about the recent launch. “I think it’s important because it’s like our campus Buzzfeed,” said Sedodo. “(It’s) the way to find out about what’s going on around campus.”
The first article issued was written by Gramuglia entitled “You Know You Go To Seton Hall When…”
“When Rachel and I started Her Campus at Seton Hall, we knew that we would have a decent following, but when this article got published on our launch day, Facebook went crazy,” Gramuglia said. “It was also on the ‘Top Chapter Stories’ list on the Her Campus homepage, which was really cool, especially for our launch date.”
“It’s important that Seton Hall students have access to Her Campus because it’s truly the voice of collegiate women across the country,” Wyncoop said. “Everything HC stands for is something that women across colleges throughout the nation can relate to and I think it’s important that Seton Hall women can be a part of that conversation.”
HC has made its mission to make sure Seton Hall women can be a part of that conversation and Seton Hall students are noticing.
“It’s empowering because there are so many sexual assaults of women on college campuses, so it’s nice to see females have a voice on a college campus,” Sedodo said.
Sedodo’s favorite article was a recent one entitled “Men’s Side of the Gym.” It made her feel better for not being the only girl afraid to go over with the “big guys,” but also made her realize that there is no reason why she can’t go over there.
Both Wyncoop and Gramuglia along with all of the staff writers are excited for HC’s future at Seton Hall. “It is important that Seton Hall students get to join in on the Her Campus conversation because the writers are real collegiate women,” Gramuglia said. “We are the voice of current students who are dealing with similar issues across the country.”
