I am the Assistant Director of Multicultural Student Programs & Services in the Diversity Center. I hail from the Chicago suburbs so prepare yourself for a whole lot of unsolicited Chicago sports conversations. When I am not tearing my hair out over my fantasy football team, I am watching HGTV, singing along to Broadway musicals, enjoying the great outdoors, or making awesome Harry Potter puns. I am currently in my third year at Gustavus, where I am studying Political Science and Communication Studies. I came to Gustavus from a small high school in North Dakota, where I grew up on the Spirit Lake Sioux Reservation. At Gustavus I am involved in Gustavus Queers and Allies, Peer Assistants Drug and Alcohol Education program, Diversity Leadership Council, Epsilon Pi Alpha Fraternity, Choir or Christ Chapel, and I am Employed by the Advancement Office. This past summer I spent my time as a Legislative Intern in the office of Senator Heidi Heitkamp in Washington, DC. I am excited about the upcoming year and look forward to meeting many new people. Hey I’m Mark Zorrilla II! I am a senior Biochemistry and Molecular Biology major at Gustavus. I come from the Houston, Texas; The Lone Star State. In my time at Gustavus I have been involved in OLAS, CrossRoads, Building Bridges, and the Diversity Leadership Council. I love to cook and clean and when I am not doing that I spend most of my free time with my friends just lounging around campus. If you find me around campus, lounge with me!
