DEPAUW GOLD WITHIN:
AMALIA D. C. Crevani '21
My Gold Within DePauw experience revolves around the endless (and super cool) opportunities DePauw has to offer to its students, especially within the School of Music. Overall, however, I think the true gold revolves around the phenomenal, passionate, dedicated and caring teachers, faculty and staff. For me, I wouldn’t be anywhere near who I am today without them. They are the ones who make it all happen – none of the relationships, opportunities, events and guidance that make DePauw stand out would exist if it weren’t for them. To me, they truly are the Gold in our "Black and Gold."
