Her Campus App State, an online publication targeted at Appalachian State University females, celebrated its third birthday Tuesday at Gladiola Girls on King Street.

“It’s a great resource for college women,” said Haley Cahill, campus correspondent for the App State chapter. “Many of the articles posted on the site are whimsical and just for fun, but we also address topics like safe sex, alcohol education, safety on campus – the kinds of issues our college women need to be informed about.”

Cahill, a senior journalism major, said the ladies behind the site are excited to honor its third birthday. The celebration at Gladiola Girls was complete with cake, cupcakes and cookies, as well as a 20 percent off deal on anything in the store for those who joined the celebration.

Clare English, a senior health promotion major, said she appreciates what the site discusses on a daily basis because it relates back to the lives of college-age females.

“It’s our age perspective,” English said.

Being able to share Her Campus’ milestones with the public gave the site the opportunity to promote who they are and what they stand for to more students.

Cahill said she is delighted to see how much they have grown in the past three years and are hopeful they will continue to be given support from students for years to come in their efforts to become an official club with the university.

“I would love to be recognized as a club by the university so we could continue to grow our readership, particularly with underclassmen,” Cahill said. “Her Campus itself is a relatively new organization – only about five-years-old – so most new students are not aware of what it is. Reaching that demographic of college students is key to being successful.”

We receive funding from the university, which helps us to compensate our students for the work they do for The Appalachian.

Our journalism is produced to serve the public interest, both on campus and within the community. From anywhere in the world, readers can access our paywall-free journalism, through our website, through our email newsletter, and through our social media channels.
