Evan Carr, a senior, will complete his Bachelors of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies next month. He has been accepted into the Masters of Public Policy Program in the UT Dallas School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences. He is currently the Chaplain and a Founding Father of the Pi Kappa Phi social fraternity. Carr has an extensive career in sales and presently works as a telemarketer. He also is a Certified Personal Trainer working at the UT Dallas Activity Center.

Its chapters are on more than 300 campuses in the United States, Puerto Rico and the Philippines. UT Dallas became the 316th chapter of Phi Kappa Phi last spring as part of the University’s effort to highlight academic achievement and become a nationally recognized Tier One research university. Last fall, the UT Dallas chapter inducted its first group of students into the society.
