Allow me to introduce myself..

Hi there...my name is Alex Lopez, I am currently a Freshman intending to major in Journalism. I'm from Indianapolis, Indiana where I attended Pike High School. I have family here in Bloomington and plenty of friends who attend IU so I am no stranger to Bloomington or the Indiana University campus.

In high school when it came to applying for schools IU was my top and only priority. When I found out I was accepted I was ecstatic! I love the IU campus because it is not only beautiful but also because it's close to home, and I like that it's a big school. I am a part of Indiana University Student Alumni Association (IUSAA), Raising Awareness in Sexual Encounters (RAISE), Multicultural Outreach Recrutiment Educators (MORE), and Epiphany Modeling Troupe (EMT). I love meeting new people and I hope to write for the Indiana Daily Student (IDS) sometime in the near future and to become more involved on campus and in Bloomington.

I hope prospective students can look at WeAreIU.com and find great things that hopefully persuade them to become Hoosiers!! I am so glad I have the opportunity to be a Student Author/Contributor for this site because I think it could be really beneficial to not only prospective students, but current students, as well as alumni.
