College is a time when many students are able to pursue exciting, new opportunities. For those who are musically inclined, like Megan Lamrock, it also means new instruments.

After spending seven years “using three fingers to play the trumpet,” the Oscoda sophomore picked up the bagpipes at Alma College. Though learning how to play has required a lot of hard work, she is happily enjoying the experience.
“I’ve been curious and interested in piping since high school, but there weren’t any instructors nearby,” she says. “I am so grateful for the opportunity to learn how to pipe here.”
In addition to piping, the biology major also is heavily involved in the Kiltie Marching Band, another experience that she enjoys.
“Having the opportunity to come to Alma two weeks prior to the start of the academic year has provided me with a solid group of friends,” she says.
Lamrock also is a member of Phi Sigma Sigma and a photographer for the Scot yearbook. Through all of these experiences, she has gotten to know the campus pretty well.
What she likes best about Alma is the people.
“They’re open and friendly,” she says. “They say ‘hi,’ even if they don’t know you!”
