Logan Bunge-Lance

Position: Masculinities Engagement Network, Center for Violence Prevention and Education

Hello! My name is Logan Bunge-Lance, I am a Sophomore Human Development and Family Studies major. minoring in Nutrition and foods. A fun fact about me is that I have run two half-marathons and plan to start training for a full soon! I work for the center for women and gender equity because I plan to one day work in college student personnel and I believe the skills and knowledge that can be gained from working for an organization like CWGE will be vital to my future roles working on a college campus. My best memories here at BGSU this far have to be working with all of my organizations on campus from CWGE to Wellness connection. I have gained so many wonderful friends and learned so much from my campus involvement and for that reason, I plan to work on college campuses for the rest of my career.

Position: Masculinities Engagement Network, Center for Violence Prevention and Education

I am a junior at BGSU majoring in Human Development and Family Studies.

A fun fact about me is that I have two cats named Adventure and Craig Darnell and a dog named Sondheim.  I wanted to work with the Center for Violence Prevention and Education because I value the opportunity to discuss gender- and power-based violence with BGSU students and provide support to those who may have experienced it. My best BGSU memory so far is being hired to work for the Masculinities Engagement Network!

Hi, I’m Megan! I am a senior with an individualized studies major. Fun fact, I can wiggle my ears. I want to work for the center to start hard conversations in a society that acts like they are taboo while also getting the opportunity to interact with other students.
