Canada Resident Director
Graduate Resident Director for Canada Hall
Servus everyone! My name is Evan and I am very excited to be a GRD at Canada Hall for this year. I was born and raised in Rockford, IL where I developed an early love for teaching, coaching, and fostering relationships with important people in my life. My passion for swimming and higher education took me to Carthage College in Kenosha, WI where I not only graduated with a double major in history and German, a minor in educational studies, and some great memories created while competing with and against great swimmers, but also met my future wife! Afterwards, I couldn't quite pull away from the awesome atmosphere of higher education and I joined the Residential Life team at Augustana College in Rock Island, IL, where I learned a lot working as a Resident Director and Assistant Swim Coach. Since Augustana, I worked on a Fulbright Scholarship as an English Teaching Assistant in Selb, Germany. I love teaching people new things just as much as I love learning something new! I had an awesome first year in Reno last year where I spent my time studying, meeting new residents, and snowboarding. I also got married to my wife Nicole and couldn't be happier that she is a part of this crazy journey called life. If I'm not at the pool, studying, or working you could probably find me playing different board games, lawn games, reading, or writing/playing music! I'm looking forward to a great year full of meaningful experiences and experiencing all that UNR has to offer! Auf wiedersehen!
