Eva Danielson

Mathematics

Contact Eva


I’m in the Class of 2022, and I’m majoring in Mathematics. I’m from East Bridgewater, Massachusetts, which isn’t so far away, so I’m pretty familiar with our local area. At Wheaton, I’m involved with the Tutor Outreach Program (and many other volunteer/service trips), Arts and Crafts Club, and the Residence Hall Association. Next year I will also be in my class council as treasurer, and on the executive board of our Community Service Club. During the school year, I work in the front office of Residential Life and SAIL, so if you ever come for a visit, we might cross paths! I’ll be one of the Orientation Coordinators for your NSO when you move in, and I’m also a part of a group made for you called SET (Student Engagement Team). My favorite place to hangout at Wheaton is in the Balfour-Hood Campus Center, but specifically in the patio area outside. It great to study, see my friends, and enjoy the sunshine.

I have always had a passion for helping others and especially enjoy working with kids. Throughout college I have coached synchronized swimming to children ages 6-18. After I graduate, I hope to continue this passion I have towards coaching and establish a program in a low-income, inner-city community in which children do not have the resources or access to a swimming/synchronized swimming program.
