Eric Macadangdang

Hello there! My name is Eric Macadangdang, and I am honored to serve as the University of Pittsburgh’s Student Government Board President for the 2020-2021 term. I am a senior double-majoring in Urban Studies and History & Philosophy of Science, with a certificate in Community Health Assessment. I was born and raised just outside of Pittsburgh in Kennedy Township, and I have always enjoyed visiting Oakland and the Pitt campus growing up. I have always been involved in Student Government Board during my undergraduate career: joining the First Year Council during my first year, serving as Chair of the Wellness Committee during my sophomore year, and serving as Board Member during my junior year. I have been able to meet a multitude of talented and passionate students along the way, and I am grateful for the opportunity to address the student body’s needs and advocating for them to the greater University community this year. My door is always open and my phone is always on, so please reach out to me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas to share with me.
