College Students: Become a Thrive Editor-At-Large

If you’re passionate about mental health on campus and beyond, we want to work with you.

  • Become a Campus Editor-at-Large for Arianna Huffington’s Thrive Global!

Thrive Global is the media and technology company founded by Arianna Huffington to help end the stress and burnout epidemic by offering people sustainable, science-based solutions to boost well-being and create a healthier relationship with technology. We’re searching for ambitious college students to become Thrive’s campus editors-at-large.

Thrive recently launched a new section called Thrive on Campus, an ongoing initiative with the goal of amplifying the voices of college students about life on campus. We’ve highlighted your take on everything from what it’s like to seek mental health care at Stanford, to the hidden stress of being an RA, to how autonomy can blend into loneliness at NYU.

We feel strongly that your stories should not be confined to campus media alone. With Thrive’s enormous cross-platform reach of over 25M, we can help you share what you’re seeing, feeling and experiencing with the world.

What does it mean to be a Thrive Global Campus Editor-at-Large?

If you want to amplify your voice, connect to other dynamic campus leaders across the country and become an impactful contributor to the mental well-being space, this is your chance.

Thrive will appoint one editor-at-large at a time from a university or college, who will contribute to Thrive’s media platform — and get the opportunity to have their voices heard by millions worldwide — as well as spread the word and invite other Thrive ambassadors to contribute. 

Responsibilities include:

  • Contribute as much content as you’d like, but at least one piece of content per month, to Thrive’s media platform. (You can contribute pieces on any subject that resonates with you related to mental well-being, from experiencing depression on campus, to your relationship with technology, to self-care, to what brings you joy, to what is or isn’t being done on your campus about the mental health crisis — and any other trends you’re noticing or experiencing. You can submit stories, photos, art, illustrations, videos, etc.)
  • Invite anyone you’d like to join the conversation and become Thrive ambassadors, sourcing at least 2 pieces of content per month from other contributors.
  • Update Thrive editors on campus-related news and trends.
  • Assist in planning any campus projects.
  • Communicate regularly with your Thrive editor.


Further opportunities/perks include:

  • Your work will be published with your byline on Thrive’s platform.
  • You’ll receive a college-ambassadors-only newsletter and have the opportunity to curate a newsletter.
  • You’ll have the chance to work directly with Thrive’s editors to strengthen and optimize your content.
  • You’ll have the chance for your work to be considered for promotion on Thrive’s social platforms
  • You’ll get access to a network of other dynamic, influential campus leaders around the country.
  • You’ll get special Thrive swag and play a role in the creative conceptualization of future swag!

If you’re psyched about Thrive’s mission and love creating content around mental well-being, consider yourself ambassador material!
