Lindsey Wilhelm knows firsthand that the TILT Building was most recently used as the Music Building, because that’s where she did her undergraduate work in Music Therapy. Now she’s an assistant professor in the department, housed in another repurposed building she knows well – the University Center for the Arts, which was the Fort Collins High School where the proud Lambkin graduated before coming to CSU. She originally studied music – her instruments are French horn and voice – but she also wanted to help people, and music therapy was a perfect fit.
(Many people who entered this month’s contest also knew that the building on the Oval was the campus library before housing the Music department, but no one remembered using it, maybe because Morgan Library opened in 1965.)
In addition to her teaching duties, Wilhelm accompanies students when they work with clients with a wide range of clinical challenges, who benefit from programs offered by the department.
For having her answer chosen at random from all the correct answers submitted, Wilhelm received the coveted CAM the Ram bobblehead, autographed by State Climatologist Russ Schumacher, the winningest Ram to ever appear on Jeopardy!, as well as a $20 gift card to Mugs Coffee Lounge.
The final question of this academic year is, fittingly, about the weather. March is usually the snowiest month in Colorado, but this year, not so much.
Q. March 17-19 marked the 15th anniversary of the third largest – and one of the most damaging – snow storms in state history, which dropped more than two feet of snow on Fort Collins. How long was Colorado State closed after the “Blizzard of 2003”?
