This week we were honored that Campus Cutie Jake Zaslavsky was able to fit us into his busy schedule in order to participate in this interview and photo shoot. You heard us correctly ladies, photo shoot. Hair, wardrobe, props, set, the whole enchilada. Okay, maybe we’re exaggerating, but he was easygoing enough to let us assist in his outfit selection and do a Bieber-esque flip on his hair. Needless to say, we’re sick of hearing all the ladies on-campus complain that there are no “good guys” when the kind-hearted and genuine Jake is right here, perhaps even in your Orgo class.

What do you aspire to do in the future? I plan on applying to and going to medical school to eventually become a doctor, but I don’t really know what kind. There’s a lot of time to decide, but if I had to pick one now I’d go with an anesthesiologist.
What are your plans for spring break? I’m driving down to Myrtle Beach with 4 of my buddies that live with me at the infamous 21 Dartmouth Street. Road Trip!
What is the best thing about ZBT? Jeremy Slosberg. Those of you who know him understand.
What drew you to ZBT? Back when orientation had just started in my freshman year, my best friend, Fred (who I have known apparently since we met in the park when we were 3, according to our moms), and I met our friends Jared and Scott. For some reason, Fred, Jared, Scott and I became extremely close with each other within the first few days of meeting each other. We all decided that we wanted to rush a fraternity, and we really centered in on ZBT because we all enjoyed hanging out with the brothers. We were 100% sure we wanted to do it in the spring, not the fall, but after receiving bids we just went through with it and it was the best decision I have ever made.
What do you like to do for fun to relax/destress? I love it when I have an IM sports game (football, basketball, softball) in the middle of a midterm week or when I am really stressed out. It’s really fun to take an hour off to relax your mind and playing a sport is a great way to do just that.
If there's one thing you want people to know about you that would be: I love adventures.
If you're on the Great Lawn on a nice day you're most likely to be doing what...? Throwing a football around with friends.
