When reflecting on this past school year, I am beyond grateful to think about all that has happened. Coming into my junior year, I had hopes of another great school year at Saint Leo, and I have been blessed to experience another exceptional year filled with a plethora of memories. From joining eXp Realty in collaboration with John Rurkowski, to launching The Collegiate Networker with my business partner Diego Rojas, to competing against Power 5 schools in hockey, and networking with new connections, this past year has allowed me to grow and create meaningful relationships that will last a lifetime. Junior year has taught me so much about myself and has pushed me out of my comfort zone every day. I am grateful for Saint Leo University and everything it has brought me, and I am eagerly looking forward to my senior year this upcoming fall.


Last Wednesday, I had the great opportunity to take the ice at Amalie Arena, the home of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

It was a once in a lifetime opportunity to be out there with Saint Leo Hockey and Jesuit High School of Tampa, FL. A huge thank you to the Tampa Bay Lightning for having us!


Recently, James-Evan had the pleasure of meeting with Commissioner Ron Oakley, the esteemed Commissioner of Pasco County District 1. Serving since 2016, Commissioner Oakley's deep understanding of community dynamics and unwavering commitment to fostering growth was truly inspiring. Their conversation revolved around dynamic approaches to bridge gaps within our community and create meaningful opportunities for Saint Leo students to actively engage with the local area.

Commissioner Oakley's wealth of experience and dedication was evident as we discussed strategies aimed at building stronger bonds within our neighborhoods and providing Saint Leo students with enriching experiences that contribute to their holistic development.

James-Evan is excited to put into action the insightful ideas we discussed, aiming to create a more interconnected and supportive environment for all community members. A heartfelt thank you to Commissioner Oakley for his invaluable guidance and dedication to empowering our community. Looking forward to a future of collaboration and progress!

Last night, I had the pleasure of delivering The Collegiate Networker to the Institute of Management Accountants Student Chapter (IMASC). Hosting an engaging one-hour session, diving into the art of storytelling, crafting a compelling social media presence, and live-interaction networking.

The energy in the room was amazing, with students actively participating and fueling their networking journeys right here at Saint Leo University .

I extend my gratitude to our dedicated ambassador, Tayhana Taylor for warmly welcoming The Collegiate Networker into the Saint Leo University IMASC family. I anticipate witnessing the future successes of the Saint Leo Networkers and the positive impact they'll create.

James-Evan had the honor to speak this past weekend as we inaugurated our new Greek Benches. Student Government, led by Dr. Anthony Desantis, did a phenomenal job crafting these benches. 

We are excited to see them foster unity within Greek Life at Saint Leo University.
