Hi everyone! My name is Tyler Viljaste, and I am this year’s Community and Governmental Relations Chair! I am a rising sophomore majoring in Politics & Philosophy and Finance. I was born in Savage, Minnesota, but have lived about 30 minutes north of Pittsburgh since I was seven. Outside of SGB, I am a member of the Parliamentary Debate team, the business manager of Eat@Pitt, a member of the associate board of Phi Alpha Delta, and I intern at the Pittsburgh Commission on Human Relations. If you ever need to reach out to me, or have a suggestion for a new restaurant for me to try (I love trying new restaurants!), feel free to email me at Hail to Pitt!
