Nick Jensen (pronounced the non-American/Danish way) came from Wisconsin to Dartmouth in 2011 to improve steadily during his first year. Studying Biology and Chemistry, Nick joins the ranks of quizbowlers obsessed with Murakami and the smaller ranks of players who love animal taxa (see Jeff Hoppes or Greg Tito). He played as Dartmouth's main generalist on most subjects, with particular ability in world mythology and literature, poetry, and visual arts, in addition to his general literature and science knowledge.

He retired from Dartmouth Quizbowl after events at 2014 ACF Nationals.

Since 2017, he has been a PhD student in Microbiology at UC Davis. He began playing tournaments for Davis in the 2019-2020 academic year. He edited Religion, Mythology, and Geography for 2020 ACF Regionals.
