Hello, my name is Cal Evoniuk and I am the Birch Hall Resident Director! I was born and raised in Belfield, North Dakota and attended North Dakota State University where I double majored in Sociology and Women & Gender Studies. While at NDSU I was an RA for 2 years and stayed involved in Residence Life throughout the rest of my time there. I also attended Minnesota State University, Mankato where I received my Masters in Counseling and Student Personnel. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, playing music, reading, and playing Pokemon. I am really excited to get to know everyone this year!
