Evan Audi, Advertising Coordinator

Major: Entrepreneurship: Info Analytics & Operations
Hometown: Southington, CT
What are some of your hobbies? I like to spend most of my time on the mountains and outside! Whether that be to go skiing, camping, hiking, skateboarding, or finding a new cliff jumping spot, I really need adrenaline in my life to stay happy and stoked about my work. I'm also heavily involved in the Frontrange Startup Community and when I'm not looking for an adrenaline rush, you can find me in Boulder and Denver attending various events, listening to speakers from the community, or helping out friends with their own pursuits.
What do you love about CU GOLD? I love CU Gold because its given me an awesome perspective as an underclassman. I've gotten to meet a variety of people ranging from international masters students to incoming freshman with high ambitions. I've learned lessons from these people and from CU Gold that I'll never forget as I move into my professional career.
What are you excited about for the year?  In the coming year, I'm looking to expand the CU Gold scope outside of its normal b-school realm, particularly into schools like engineering and environmental sciences so we can have a diverse set of ideas and inputs to build the program. I'd also like CU Gold to connect with the entrepreneurship initiatives on campus because leadership, business, entrepreneurship, engineering, and science all go hand in hand, and its a waste to not be reaching all those audiences with our voice and our goals.
