Three interesting things about Ethan:

  • I was a TV news reporter for CBS and ABC for two years.
  • I love ice skating! In fact, I was a competitive speed skater for two years in Milwaukee with dreams of making the Olympic team.
  • I'm a big movie buff and am really into TV shows like NCIS, Sherlock, and Robin Hood.

Why do you love Drake?

I love Drake because the professors go out of their way to help students succeed. They will make time to sit down with you to work through course requirements, set up internship possibilities and help you connect with professionals in your field of study.

What is your favorite thing to do in Des Moines?

My favorite thing to do in Des Moines is the food! From all day breakfast and cake shakes at the Drake Diner to late night pizza at Fong's, Des Moines has a dish for everyone.
