Ethan Gertzman

Hey guys! My name is Ethan Gertzman and I’m a junior here at Pitt. This year I am very proud to be serving as SGB’s Allocations Committee Chair! I’m a Political Science & Psychology double major with a certificate in Nonprofit Management and I was born and raised in Flemington, New Jersey. Outside of Student Government Board, I also work as a Pitt Pathfinder on campus and I love to snowboard. Also, I took a gap year before coming to Pitt where I got to live, volunteer, and study in the Middle East. I’m super excited for another incredible year in Oakland and if you ever have any questions about anything Allocations-related, please feel free to reach out!
