Tyler Viljaste

Hi everyone! My name is Tyler Viljaste – I’m a Senior studying Politics&Philosophy and Finance, and I’m originally from ~30 minutes north of Pittsburgh (Pine-Richland). This year I will be serving as one of the co-chiefs of staff. I was a former member of the First Year Council as a freshman, the chair of the Community and Governmental Relations Committee as a Sophomore, and as a Junior I ran for Board and was elected to serve as Vice President and Chief of Cabinet. Outside of Student Government, I am a brother of Beta Theta Pi, the Finance Manager for Eat@Pitt, a member of Phi Alpha Delta, and a member of the Parliamentary Debate Team. I’m also applying to law schools this year – so definitely connect with me if you are interested in pursuing law school after Pitt! In my free time, I love to be outside, spend time with friends, and cook and bake.
