Hey what’s up Zags! My name is Derek Zylstra and I am a sophomore from beautiful Santa Barbara, California. I came up to Gonzaga because I wanted to experience something different and be immersed into a new climate. Here at Gonzaga, I am majoring in business with a minor in Spanish. I love the wonderful seasons of Spokane and all the fun outdoor activities the surrounding area has to offer. When I am not at school or with my family I love to go hiking, skiing, backpacking, rock climbing, wakeboarding and much more. See y’all out there Zags!
Favorite Wilderness Location: Serene Lakes (Soda Springs, CA)
