A group of IU students came together to support a friend who recently was diagnosed with lymphoma. Their “No Shave November” fundraiser has raised more than $60,000 for the lymphoma research. The News and Media Team worked with NBC’s “Today Show” on a segment and a live segment from the Bloomington campus. The segment led to more national media publicity and social media traffic.

The segment was widely shared and commented on through social media
