Student Government granted club status to Her Campus TCNJ on Wednesday, March 2.
The College’s branch of Her Campus, an online lifestyle magazine aimed at the “collegiette,” or female college student, launched last month.
Junior journalism major Jess Corry and sophomore journalism major Alexa Rozzi spoke to SG about Her Campus TCNJ.
“Essentially, we’re a branch of a national organization that started at Harvard (University),” Corry said. “It now has 105 branches.”
Corry and Rozzi founded the College’s branch of Her Campus and launched the site on Feb. 15. According to Rozzi, the website has done well since it’s start.
“We were recognized as one of the top 10 branches (in our first) week,” Rozzi said.
She explained that the online magazine was looking for club status so that its 34-person staff could organize events.
“We’ve been talking with other colleges to see if we can do joint events, and we’re looking for publicity,” Rozzi said.
SG approved the club unanimously.
“I go on the site probably every day,” said sophomore history secondary education major Katie Cugliotta, vice president of academic affairs. “It’s awesome.”

Also during Wednesday’s meeting, senior accounting major Anthony Czajkowski, vice president of administration and finance, mentioned he had heard complaints that many lights were out around campus.
“My committee and I went on a tour of campus and basically just wrote down all the lights that were out,” Czajkowski said. “We also noticed that a vast majority of the blue lights on campus are out … which is obviously a huge safety concern.”
Czajkowski e-mailed Campus Police Chief John Collins about the issue.
“We’ll hopefully be addressing that shortly,” Czajkowski said.
