When I started looking at colleges I never had even heard of Elmhurst until my choir teacher, who is a graduate, suggested that I look into it. I checked out the web site and then applied. I was thrilled when I got my acceptance letter and I quickly made an appointment to audition for the music department. The first time I was on campus was during my audition. I was almost instantly taken in by the charm of this cute little campus. Even in the cold temperature I felt warmth. After my audition, I knew I wanted to go to Elmhurst for sure. I didn't apply to any other colleges. I had my campus tour with my mom and sister and even they fell in love with the campus and the people. Everyone was so friendly and helpful.
