When I toured Elon University for the first time, I instantly fell in love with the sleek, modern buildings that made up Arts West. I was extremely impressed by the facilities and could picture myself sitting in the leather seat behind the mixing board recording my songs in the immaculate studios. I told my parents the same day that I had decided to make Elon my home for the next four years. Many prospective students like myself have found places within the gorgeous buildings of Elon to explore their strengths and hone in on their craft. It wasn’t until later on that I discovered not all music facilities were created equal.
