Zachary Dilger ’15

Alumni and Administrator

Assistant Director Alumni and Parent Engagement in Alumni Relations

My name is Zach Dilger and I grew in South St. Paul, Minnesota. After graduating from high school I was accepted to Gustavus Adolphus College. During my Gustavus career, I was the captain of the football team, public relations chair of the Tau Psi Omega (REDs) fraternity, and a devoted student. Go Gusties! I earned my elementary education degree and spent the next two years teaching first grade in New Prague, Minnesota. Teaching 25 first grade students and coaching 4-5th grade football kept me busy. From there, I spent time in Michigan working for the University of Michigan, Go BLUE! Before trekking back to Minnesota to fundraise for elementary schools. I enjoyed serving numerous schools throughout Minnesota for over two years. Currently, I'm the Assistant Director of Parent and Alumni Engagement within the Advancement Team. I'm excited to give back to Gustavus, serving the school that gave so much to me. 


Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Gustavus Adolphus College.
