Elizabeth Myers Houston '06

I mostly grew up in suburban Chicago, but I graduated high school in South Carolina and have also lived in Georgia. I came to Oberlin for college, and liked it so much that I still haven't left! I graduated from Oberlin in 2006 with a major in politics and a minor in computer science. Along the way I was very active in the co-op system on campus, took an assortment of exciting ExCos, and spent a semester studying abroad in Shanghai, China. After graduation, I volunteered for a year as an AmeriCorps VISTA, coordinating a tutoring program and working in a technology center. I joined the admissions staff here at Oberlin in August 2008 and spent four years as an Assistant Director of Admissions before transitioning to a technical support role in the Admissions Office. I look forward to continuing to correspond with prospective students about the joys of an Oberlin education.

A feedback session that follows each set yields instant praise or critique. This type of studio class offers valuable learning experiences while building confidence among young musicians.
