Hello!! I am Alyssa Andrews, a 21-year-old junior at the greatest school ever, Indiana University. You Might know me as Hoosier Lyss. Before I got here, I went to Center Grove High School. It's the best place to come home to. Nothing beats 135. I thought I had be attached to the south-side Indy life, but I fell in love with Bloomington as soon as I got here!
Everywhere I go, I love being involved. Here at IU, I am on the athletic department's marketing team. I basically get to run around sporting events making fun videos. You can check them out on IU Athletics Channel. I am also a sideline reporter for Big Ten Network's Student U program. It is a lot of fun and great experience to do the kind of work I could potentially do after college in both of these jobs.
I am double majoring in Telecommunications and a degree I am creating through the Individualized Major Program that I named "Social Media Journalism." It's pretty important to me. I am extremely dedicated to it and passionate about making moves within the industry that nobody else is doing. It's more fun that way.
My main focus on campus is my alter ego, Hoosier Lyss! Whenever I am not in the class room, you can find me being "YouTube's #1 Indiana Fan," making weird videos about IUBB. Check out my website, HoosierLyss.com to keep track of episodes and random twerking with my friends!
This got me my first internship with ESPN's Indianapolis affiliate, 1070 The Fan! I also blog for Btown Banners, it's a fun website with IU sport content submitted by Hoosiers, for Hoosiers.
Friends will complain that I respond quicker on Twitter than I do through texting or any other outlet, so Tweet at me!
Keep on Keepin' on!
-Alyssa Andrews :)
