This summer, Evan is interning at DoSomething.org as their Finance and Human Resources Intern. “DoSomething is a non-profit with the goal of motivating young people to take action around social changes through national campaigns and grants for projects that make an impact. Overall, their mission is to create a culture of volunteerism and social activism through engaging and empowering young people.”

Evan’s favorite experience in the Honors program was with one of his seminars!

“Far and away the most rewarding experience I have had with the Honors Program was the Intermediate Seminar I participated in during the Fall 2014 semester. The course was Sex, Gender, and Desire with Professor Carla Golden. This course was precisely structured to engage students in provocative and challenging discourses surrounding feminism, sexuality, gender, intercourse, and sex. Each reading contributed to a perfect constellation of engaging topics. This class was critical in my personal growth, and the material caused me to reevaluate how I understand the world. The way I navigate society is forever skewed (for the better, I feel) as a result of this course. I even wore a dress to class on the last day to challenge the gender binary! Endless praise for Carla and SGD.”
