"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 felt like I have found my calling and the place where I can best to use my energy and my talents," she said.
Amy’s relationships with her instructors influenced her development as a music educator with an emphasis on special education. It was the same relationships that first drew Amy to Elizabethtown College: "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 she was looking for a faculty that was accessible and knew her as a person. "I think the faculty at Elizabethtown were so accessible. It's not just the music department, even in my core classes the professors were accessible and got to know you as a person and not just as a student. I think this unique community feeling was something that you just can't find anywhere else," she noted.
