Give Us Your Story

If you've visited IUP's homepage, watched TV, or driven down major highways, you've noticed the university's new advertising campaign called Get My Story. The Communications Office wants more stories. If you are a student who would like to be the subject of one of the Get My Story profiles, this is your chance to audition.

Make a video telling us why your story would be a good one to promote IUP. We're more interested in your story than the quality of the video production you submit, so go ahead and use your phone or your roommate's video camera. Post your one- to three-minute audition to YouTube, then send a link to the video to Please be sure to make your submission using your official IUP e-mail account and include your name and phone number. The subject line should read Here's My Story.

We're looking for students who have taken advantage of what our campus has to offer–be it athletics, clubs, performance ensembles, student government, internships, study abroad, volunteering, independent study, scholarly competitions, etc. We're not necessarily looking for academic superstars, although if you happen to be one, consider it a bonus point.

Deadline for submissions is November 7.
