Q & A with Greg Zales

Why Dartmouth?

Dartmouth's outstanding academics and nurturing community were what really attracted me to the school. So far it has proven to be everything that I had hoped for my college experience.

How long have you been rowing and what interested you about rowing?

I have been rowing since 8th grade. In high school I rowed for Saugatuck Rowing Club in Westport, CT. My brother rowed before me and my dad was a coxswain here (Class of '81 Frosh Lights!). They both inspired my interest in rowing.

Have you won any awards?

In rowing I was recognized by my club and was named 2012 Male Athlete of the Year and also member of the All-Black Club. Academically, I was awarded National Merit Finalist and Congressional Award Bronze Medalist.

Something interesting about yourself?

I speak Esperanto and I have a second degree black belt (Ee Dan) in Karate.
