MY EXCEPTIONAL STORY

Choosing Mount Union
It’s close to home, so I feel comfortable. I love the environment, especially in Cope Music Hall. Everyone is like one big, supportive family. When I visited Mount, I felt very welcomed and accepted.

Faculty Experts
My favorite thing about Mount Union is the faculty – they’re amazing! Not only are they experts in their fields, they truly care about my educational advancement.

Favorite Place on Campus
Presser Recital Hall is my favorite place. I get to listen to so much wonderful music in there. I also love performing in Presser. I love sharing what I have learned with my friends and professors. I can’t count how many “wow!” moments I have had there.

Beautiful Campus
Apart from everything else I love about Mount, the campus is beautiful! I love walking to and from classes and looking at the lakes and the trees. It’s very relaxing. Many other campuses don’t have that.

Preparation for Success
I am learning how to be a musician in the professional world. I am developing crucial teaching skills that will enable me to further my student’s educational experiences.

Music Performance and French Majors
I chose music performance as my first major because I have a passion for music! I want to teach piano privately and perform. I chose French as my second major because not only do I love to study the language, I think it’s really important that everyone can speak a foreign language. We live in a world where this definitely comes in handy, and I want to be able to teach the language to others.

Concert Choir
I would have to say performing with the Concert Choir has been my favorite hands-on experience at Mount Union. Performing so much powerful music with a group of wonderful, talented people cannot be topped.

Favorite Class
Piano Pedagogy is my favorite, because I am learning so much about being a great piano teacher.

Favorite Professor
Dr. Maira Liliestedt. She has really helped me to see how I want my future to be, and how I am going to get there.

Well-Rounded Experience
I am really getting a well-rounded educational experience! I feel like I am being prepared not only for my major, but also for the real world in general.

Dream Job
I want to be a private piano teacher. I want to have my own private teaching studio where I can create a creative, nurturing learning environment for my students. I would also like to teach French privately or in a public school.
