Ivy Tech student Austin Barron featured in upcoming episode of MTV’s MADE

NORTHEAST – Ivy Tech Community College−Northeast student Austin Barron will be featured on an upcoming episode of MTV’s reality show MADE. The tentative air date is scheduled to air Tuesday, January 18, 2011, at 4 p.m. Eastern. MTV has notified the college that the day and time is subject to change.

Check local listings or made.mtv.com for updated information. Due to the college’s confidentiality agreement signed with the network, Ivy Tech is not permitted to discuss specifics on the program until after the airdate.

MADE is about making dreams come true. MTV attempts to prove that with dedication, hard work, and a little help from the network and a celebrity coach, individuals can accomplish anything they set their minds to. Episodes usually follow one willing candidate as he or she embarks on a mission to transform his or her life. Whether it is becoming a varsity football player, the homecoming queen or a cheerleader, each teenager dreamed of breaking out of his or her shell to find out what they were really made of and what they could achieve when given the tools and training – sometimes successful, sometimes not … and sometimes they realize they really liked who they were to begin with after all.
