"From the time I started playing trombone at the age of eleven, I had the idea of someday studying in Chicago. It is a city that has over the years gained recognition as being at the center of the brass universe. I researched carefully to know which schools could provide me what I was looking for and I discovered that Roosevelt University was the perfect place for me. In addition to a variety of academic programs designed perfectly for each student, it also has a world-class team of faculty who are absolutely committed to their students. I am enormously happy to have Roosevelt University as my alma mater."
