Burgh Buck Chairs
Torben Breitkopf, Brian Tyberg,
Micaleigh Noll, & Megan Rogers
Hey guys! My name is Torben Breitkopf and I'm a junior double majoring in Integrated Marketing Communications and Journalism with an extended study focusing on Rhetoric and more specifically Public Advocacy -- its a mouthful to say. As you all were able to see by my name, I'm not from the U.S. I was actually born in Cologne, Germany and spent half my life there before finally settling down right outside of Pittsburgh in Mt. Lebanon (Go Blue Devils!) A fun fact about me is that I took a year off after graduating High School and spent 5-6 months in Australia working and travelling before coming back to the states where I then had a month and a half long roadtrip to San Diego. But enough of me -- Welcome to Duquesne! I know transitioning to college can be hard and emotional for many of you, but remember that you are coming to a school in which you will meet friends that will become like your second family. Enjoy Orientation and your years at Duquesne!
My name is Brian Tyberg, and I am one of four Burgh Buck chairs for this year's Orientation! I am a senior double major in psychology and sociology from Harrison City, PA, about an hour away from the city. My college career has thus far afforded me several incredible opportunities that wouldn't have been possible if not for the connections between Duquesne and the city of Pittsburgh. I am very excited for this year's Orientation and cannot wait to see how everyone takes in life at Duquesne!
Hello everyone! My name is Micaleigh and I'll be going into my third year of pharmacy school this fall! Some of my favorite things about Duquesne include the fountains, strutting down A-walk, late night walks with my Big, and the squirrels who get a little too close for comfort for me. Some fun facts about myself: my lucky number is 18, I enjoy cliff jumping, I eat icing out of the jar, I have a schnauzer named schnauzer, I like eating more sprinkles than ice cream, I pretend I'm a doctor on Grey's Anatomy, and I enjoy having concerts in my dorm room with my roommate Arianna! Can't wait to meet you all this fall!
Hello everyone! My name is Megan Rogers and I'm a senior nursing major. I'm also the president of Alpha Tau Delta which is Duquesne's nursing fraternity and the general manager of WDSR, Duquesne Student Radio. I'm essentially everywhere, all the time. I'm super excited to help out with Orientation for my final year here at Duquesne, and especially to bust out my dance moves at the Grafitti Dance!
