"I think the faculty at Elizabethtown are so accessible. It's not just the music department, even in my core classes the professors are accessible and they try to get to know you as a person." -- Amy Osterhoudt
Music Education major Amy Osterhoudt found her calling through her experience at E-town.
"Ever since I took my special education class and heard the personal experiences of my instructor, I just feel like I have found my calling and the place where I can best to use my energy and my talents," she said.
The relationships between Amy and her instructors have been the transformative influences in her development as a future music educator with an emphasis on special education.
It was the same relationships that first drew Amy to Elizabethtown College. She recalled her first campus visit.
"From the very first visit I just knew that this is the place where I wanted to be... Everyone including the tour guide was so incredibly welcoming and friendly," she said.
Amy noted that what she was looking for was a faculty that was accessible and knew her as a person.
"I think the faculty at Elizabethtown are so accessible. It's not just the music department, even in my core classes the professors are accessible and they try to get to know you as a person and not just as a student. I think this unique community feeling is something that you just can't find anywhere else," she noted.
