Don’t try to put Evan Davis ’21 into a box.

On paper, he seems like a “numbers person,” triple majoring in business analytics, finance, and management

But Evan is a self-described “artsy guy,” who attributes his creativity to his late grandmother. He’s a writer, musician, photographer, and comic book enthusiast who pens his own stories.

At Widener, Evan has had the opportunity and flexibility to pursue it all – business, arts, leadership, and multiple study abroad trips.

With a wide range of student organizations at his fingertips, Evan has found a place within both Widener’s Money Club (a student-managed investment fund group), and The Blue Route (an undergraduate literary journal). 

Through peer mentoring and Alpha Phi Omega, a co-ed service fraternity, Evan fulfills his Superman-inspired desire to help others. 

I always feel like I can be doing more. Widener provided the tools and opportunities that I've taken advantage of with my immense, internal motivation. — Evan Davis '21

Triple Threat

In addition to his three majors, Evan will have several business certificates under his belt when he graduates: “Widener gives me access to so many great opportunities I wouldn't have had elsewhere. These experiences and opportunities give me a great competitive advantage heading into the workforce.”

Leadership Development

Evan serves as the student trustee on Widener’s Board of Trustees. In this role, he’s gaining an appreciation for the value of long-term thinking: “As a young person, thinking five years in the future, that’s a quarter of my life, so I didn’t do that very often. Being on the board is getting me more accustomed to longer-term ideas.”

Building Connections

Evan placed second in a global student app development contest hosted by Mendix. His app, originally designed for Widener’s Small Business Development Center, was featured at Widener’s Student Project Day. That’s where a Mendix representative saw it and encouraged him to enter the contest, while others in attendance told him to reach out for potential job opportunities.
