DSC_0061(1)My name is Bryan Partika and I am a current senior at Point Park University in Pittsburgh.  I am originally from Poland, Ohio and I am a double-major in Political Science and Journalism.

At Point Park, I am captain of the track and field team, while also being an All-Conference athlete on the track and an Academic All-Conference athlete in the classroom.  I hold a 3.51 cumulative GPA and am recognized as a Daktronics NAIA Academic All-American.

I have a lot of experience in my college career so far.  I interned on Capitol Hill for Congressman Tim Ryan (OH-13) where I gained valuable experience working in an elected official’s office.  I am a Point Park Ambassador Coordinator, which means that I help lead and organize the freshman orientations and student affairs programs.  I am a Point Park sports broadcaster for many of the sporting events at the university while also writing for the Pioneer Sports website.  I also did freelance work for the Youngstown Boys & Girls Club.

Aside from academics and sports, I work as a skate guard at the Mass Mutual Pittsburgh Ice Rink at PPG Place, a hostess at Primanti Brothers Market Square, and as a model and actor for the Talent Group PGH.
