Every student, alumnus, and professor has a story.

The newest phase of our Get My Story advertising campaign features stories that continue to showcase the exceptional work done at IUP:

  • A pre-dentistry major who exemplifies leadership, serving as president of the Student Government Association, an active sorority member, and founder of the IUP Athena Club
  • Geography and Regional Planning professor working to make IUP a center for expertise in coal mine maps while equipping students with the skills to be marketable in the field upon graduation
  • teacher and alumna awarded for her work in coordinating tutoring services and creating incentives for children to improve their grades
  • An Iraq veteran studying Geographic Information Systems who worked on a real-world GIS project to connect bicycle trails near IUP

These stories are featured on the IUP website—both on the home page and the Get My Story page—and on billboards throughout the region.

Coordinated by the Communications office, the campaign was started in September 2008 to raise awareness about the strength of the IUP education, our successful alumni, and our range of student opportunities, including research and civic engagement.
