Stephanie Kaplan Lewis ‘10, Windsor Hanger Western ‘10, and Annie Wang ‘11 met while undergraduates through running Harvard College’s lifestyle and fashion magazine. While working on this student publication, they saw the potential for something even bigger and better, and spent spring 2009 developing the business plan for Her Campus.
