New Blog Talks About IUP

Posted on 9/2/2011 8:06:56 PM

The Communications Office staff has started a new project, hoping to increase awareness about all the good things happening on campus.

Around the Oak Grove is an experimental blog. Communications staff members currently are contributing to it information they’ve picked up through their work to promote the university. Sometimes entries will be from a first-person perspective; other entries will be written purely in a third-person news style.

“One of the main jobs of the Office of Communications is to tell the story of IUP. Or, rather, stories. With over 15,000 students, 700 professors, and 100,000 living alumni, there are a lot of stories to tell,” said Communications Director Michael Powers. “This blog is an experiment in getting more of those stories out to the public.”
