"Indiana is boring, all there is to do is party." This comment, stated by Megan Sinneway, a student at Otterbein University, is a comment heard often among people who simply decide to stereotype Indiana or the Indiana University of Pennsylvania before even experiencing these places for themselves.
Yes, IUP does have its fair share of parties just like every other university does, but that isn't all Indiana has to offer. People need to get the IUP I'm Shmacked video out of their head and realize that there are better things to do in this town than what the video portrays.
My name is Amanda Miller, a journalism major at IUP, and my blog is meant to help eliminate this stereotype and show that there are many other entertaining and enjoyable ways to spend your time in Indiana.
