Nowadays, students are determined to entertain, educate, and empower fellow students through various social media platforms. While there’s no denying that people will always look up to celebrities, young individuals prefer to listen to a relatable figure who just *gets* them. Sure, these content creators may have a smaller following compared to established internet personalities, but they’re always the college student’s go-to for university life, campus style, Gen Z trends, and other “young adulting” issues that they themselves are going through. Chances are, you’d only trust fellow schoolmates who actually walk the same halls as you. 

If you’re an Atenean, you’re lucky to have many follow-worthy influencers in your student body. Scroll down to learn more about them!
