Producers will be at the campus Wednesday to interview students about appearing on the show.
John Locke, RMU's student life director, said more than 20 students have already signed up for the casting, which will take place at the university's Nicholson Center. The reality show follows young adults as they try to realize their goals—past MADE stars have turned themselves into beauty queens, musicians and athletes.
"In the past the show has focused on high school students and teenagers," Locke said. "They said that they want to shift the focus more on college students and cast people from campuses."
Locke said the show's producers are planning to film in the Pittsburgh area and are on a national casting tour.
Students will meet with producers for five-minute interviews, where they can explain their goals and how they'd like to change themselves. The university has emailed an MTV questionnaire to its entire student body.
The casting is open to RMU students only. Students may contact the university's Student Life offices to sign up for the casting call.
"The show's actually really uplifting," Locke said. "It's a three-time Emmy winner. It's all about kids having dreams."
