Bio: Originally from Connecticut, Zak is someone that took the non-traditional approach to his education. After being recruited to play collegiate baseball for many large institutions around the country, he decided to take a break from his schooling. During that time, he spent two years of his life living in southern France doing non-profit service work for his church organization. Upon returning, he landed in the Green Mountain State and now calls it home. He completed his Bachelors Degree at Castleton State College graduating with Magna Cum Laude honors.

What do you like most about Burlington College? I truly appreciate the “open door policy” that we have at Burlington College. I believe that when faculty and staff have their doors open, it signifies the fact that all are welcome to come in. Burlington College is and does just that. Also, the system in which our students learn at Burlington College is like no other place that I have been a part of.  I find it fascinating how involved the students are with their coursework and interactions with professors and other students. It is truly remarkable.

A random fact. Even though my last name is Mayo, I HATE mayonnaise, mustard, and relish!!!!!!!!!!

Something I am passionate about. Though it may be true that I am a sports nut, I have a large passion for music and dancing. I have been a radio DJ, and I loved it! Also, when the creative juices are flowing, I may put the pen to the paper and write a bit of music myself. Dance floor….love it….enough said!
