I absolutely love performing in all the different ensembles, whether it be Wind Ensemble, Orchestra, or a smaller chamber ensemble. Getting the opportunity to collaborate and learn from all of the other students is truly inspiring."

"I fell in love with OSU when I visited Stillwater for the first time. The campus is beautiful, the people are nice and hospitable, and the music professors care about every individual in the department. Dr. Broffitt is both an amazing professor and performer and I am so happy to be studying with her."
