Evan Hargrove, junior, was born in Michigan but was raised in Dubai, giving him the opportunity to experience and be raised in two diverse cultures.
At a young age, Hargrove moved to Dubai along with his parents and older siblings. There, he attended school at American School of Dubai and was part of his high school’s football and track team. He has had the opportunity to travel along with his family to different places.
“This experience gave me the opportunity to see and experience the culture and language of a country so different to the United States,” said Hargrove. “It’s been interesting to be back in the U.S. after being away for such a long time.”
During his college search, Hargrove was invited to play college football in Georgia but he tore his ACL. He did not let this discourage him for what he wanted his college experience to be.
“After that, I kept my search and came across Lynn,” said Hargrove. “I saw the business program and it convinced me here is where I had to go.”
Throughout his years at Lynn, Hargrove has been very involved around campus. He is part of campus recreation, he has played in different intramural sports, is the athletics knight for Knights of the Round Table and is a resident assistant in de Hoenle Residence Hall.
“My favorite thing about Lynn is the diversity it has among the students and their cultural background, said Hargrove. “I have made friends with people from all over the world and have had the chance to learn about different cultures and places.”
With his remaining time at Lynn, Hargrove hopes to gain field experience in his major, as well as to have the opportunity to intern in the area. Hargrove is excited to stay involved around campus and enjoys having the opportunity to keep adding to his cultural knowledge.
