Three interesting things about Evan:

  1. I spent a year in China through Drake’s Teach in China program for recent graduates
  2. I’m a big film geek, so if you ever start a conversation with me about movies be prepared for a long talk
  3. I’m really good at playing fake plastic guitars and loudly singing out of tune

Why do you love Drake? Drake is a fun, close community. It’s a small enough group of people that I will frequently run into friends on campus or at nearby restaurants, but big enough that it’s not difficult to meet new people and make new friends. As a student, it did not take long to feel at home here, and when I returned as a graduate that feeling came rushing back.

What is your favorite thing to do in Des Moines?There’s so much to do in Des Moines that it’s hard to have one favorite thing. For me it usually just depends on what I’m looking for… that could be anything from enjoying a midnight movie opening at Jordan Creek to hanging out with friends on Court Avenue or having some of the best barbecue ever at Jethro’s, right in the Drake neighborhood.

What is your favorite food to get in Hubbell Dining Hall? The desserts! Soft, gooey chocolate chip cookies and self-serve ice cream? It’s the best.

Evan's advice for prospective students: Look for a school that just feels right. A lot of the time it may be hard to explain why a school seems like the right fit, as it can boil down to a gut instinct. All you will know is that school is right for you. That’s the feeling I remember having when I first visited Drake.
