With a mix of news articles, style tips and interviews with campus characters, an online magazine launched late last month is aimed squarely at UWindsor women.
Her Campus UWindsor is the local chapter—one of 230 local around the world—of Boston-based company Her Campus Media. First-year digital journalism students Lucy Hopkins and Cacey Edmondson are Windsor’s campus correspondents.
“As soon as we learned about this opportunity, we knew we had to go ahead with it,” says Hopkins. “It is such an amazing and powerful thing to have on campus. Starting this chapter allows young women the opportunity to lead and work in a team of talented individuals, and we target several issues in our pieces that affect the women on campus. It’s really incredible that we have had the chance to start this!”
The two plan a launch event soon and hope to bring in students for a night that will not only gain readership on their site, but will also attract more members.
“We are always recruiting,” Edmondson says. “Her Campus is a fantastic club to work in, and you become so close with your teammates.”
