A Fin-LOVE-dia Story: Ethan, Ashley and baby Nash

October 18, 2019

On this weeks episode of Finlandia Fridays, host Devin O’Neill shares the news of his departure with one final episode. Today he is joined by Ethan, Ashley and Nash St. Germain. Ethan and Ashley share with O’Neill their Fin-LOVE-dia story on how they reconnected here at FinnU.

Both originally from Negaunee, MI and sharing the same friend group for years, the two parted ways when Ethan went to play junior hockey in the Wisconsin Dells. Over time Ethan came back to the area and decided that FinnU was the right place for him. Ashley, a nursing student, was already at the university.

“To be honest, I think it was just social media,” said Ethan when asked about how the pair reconnected. “I got her attention somehow and she gave me a shot.”

Currently, Ethan is a junior studying accounting and continues to play hockey for the ACHA Division II hockey team. While Ashley is a senior finishing up her nursing degree. Ashley and Ethan both touch on their classes, professors, and their life outside the classroom.  Baby Nash also had a few words about his life too!
