"Stetson is such a unique place to be – there really is nowhere else like it in the country. The undergraduate-only focus of our School of Music is unparalleled and is the best possible preparation for life after college. I grew up outside of Florida and had never heard of Stetson until my private clarinet teacher in high school mentioned it to me, and I cannot imagine where my life would be had I never considered attending. Stetson has made all the difference in the world and has molded me into the person I am today. I am proud to be an alumnus of such a fine institution!"
