Tell us about yourself!
My name is Ethan Robles. I graduate from DeSales University in 2014. Before my time with Lehigh, I worked in undergraduate admissions at Lafayette College. My experience with my undergraduate professors drove me in college and has driven my desire to continue my education. Outside of Drown, I am a creative writer, theater enthusiast, lover of horror and science fiction, amateur conspiracy theorist, comic con attendee, a lover of history, and podcast fanatic.
Why did you choose Lehigh?
Lehigh was the one school that seemed to care if I chose to attend or not. Many of the places that I applied were late to get back to me or indifferent about my acceptance. I felt welcomed here. The professors and the students were excited about the work they were doing. I wanted to be apart of that passion.
What is your favorite book outside your field of study?
I think the best I can do is top five. I can’t narrow it down. It would have to be Catcher in the Rye, To Kill a Mockingbird, Childhood’s End, Misery, and Choke.
What are you most looking forward to this year?
I’m looking forward to getting to know my cohort, meeting new professors, and jumping into new topics. I’m just really excited to be back in academia and doing meaningful work in literature.
