I am interested in gender and sexuality studies, as well as environmentalism, film, and video games! My skills include writing 500 words in forty-five minutes and ice skating. I should probably mention that half my personality revolves around pirates and the Great Lakes.

Hi everyone! My name is Lena Nighswander and I am a second-year English major here at BGSU. I’m originally from Waterville, Ohio, which is just a little bit outside of Toledo. After graduation, I plan to go to grad school and pursue a Master’s degree in Medieval Literature. I’d like to be a professor someday!

This semester, I’m doing an independent study about medieval Scandinavian literature – specifically Old Norse and Old Icelandic literature – with one of my professors. It’s the perfect combination of two of my favorite subject areas: Medieval Studies and Scandinavian Studies.

Position: Student Ambassador, 2019-2020

Ethan Zaborowski is a third-year student majoring in English and dual-minoring in both Creative Writing and Philosophy. He graduated from Anthony Wayne High School, and still lives in the village of Whitehouse, where he works, studies, writes poetry, and allots a good third of his time for his five ferrets.

He has a special affinity for modernist, expressionist, and objectivist poetry, and likes to credit T.S. Eliot, Hugh MacDiarmid, and Louis Zukofsky as having the most vital influence over his own poetics. After finishing his fifth year as an undergrad, he plans to pursue a master's degree and, eventually, a Ph.D. in English and Textual studies.
