Meet the Chicago Interns!

There’s a lot that goes on behind closed laptops at CollegeFashionista. (Well, actually they are open all the time, but you get what I mean). Behind all of the homepage features, events and social media, we have some help from a #RAD group of in-office interns. Our Chicago interns help make the editorial wheels spin round and are absolute gems. Not only do they pull images like a boss, but they tolerate all of the doughnut talk we throw at them. (Which is a “hole” lot—get it?)

Learn more about these cuties who help behind the scenes of CollegeFashionista!
