Zack was born in Saudi Arabia but grew up most of his life in the land of corn: Indiana. He swam competitively for 12 years and rowed at Northwestern for 2 years (Go ‘cats!). Zack enjoys road trips, running outside, hiking, boating, and water skiing. Zack had an awesome time being vice chair last year and is eager to continue on with his ASDA involvement as chair of Health and Wellness committee. Last year he helped to get the ball rolling with BU’s first run club and is happy to keep the running fever going through BU. He is also really excited for the coming year and is looking forward to promoting some new creative events for the Health and Wellness committee.
Gagan is born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta. As does everyone growing up in Canada, he dreamed to be a professional hockey player, but instead he decided to become a dentist. Before coming to BUGSDM, he attended the University of Alberta. He enjoys playing sports, hiking, camping, lifting in the gym, and travelling. Gagan joined the Health and Wellness Committee as a member during his first year. As vice chair, he is excited to have a bigger role in working alongside his team to promote both physical and mental health at BU.
