This month, NeW caught up with the women from NeW at College of Charleston. Learn about the great work these women are doing on campus from their e-board members.
Why is NeW important to your chapter?
NeW allows conservative women on campus to speak their minds and have open political conversations without being harassed, isolated, or shut down by liberals within the campus. NeW gives our members a chance to make life long friends, learn about politics and career development, and be themselves–difficult things to achieve on a liberal college campus.
What kind of impact has your chapter had on campus?
Our NeW chapter has encouraged conservative women to be more outspoken and brave in their views. Many women who started in NeW were reserved when talking about politics and now they have the strength to speak their mind and stand their ground, no matter the situation.
What has been your chapter’s favorite event and why?
One of our chapter’s favorite events was when we attended Nikki Haley’s book tour last fall. We received signed copies of her book and were able to listen to her inspiring speech about being a successful conservative woman.
What advice would you give to someone who wants to start a chapter on their campus?
Reach out to people personally who would like to help you start or join your chapter. When you reach out to people personally, you make a connection and it’s the bonds we have with each other that makes NeW so special.
