As many of my college peers *casually makes a Camel noise to show off school mascot pride* are aware, I'm a member of my college's chapter of Her Campus! As a scared little freshman, I didn't want to commit just yet to many clubs because I was still trying to figure out the basics of my new life, like where the heck was the main dining hall, and did I have enough clean socks in the drawer because I was so not about to do some laundry!?… But sophomore year? I was totally ready to branch out by joining clubs and exiting my previously-freshie comfort zone! Her Campus was one of the clubs that I joined and I am so happy that I did!
