Associate Director, Programs
140 D Ping Center
Meet the guy responsible for overseeing all program areas, including Intramural Sports, Club Sports, Outdoor Pursuits and Fitness: Wes Bonadio! He joined the Bobcat family with an abundance of previous experience, starting with his undergraduate years. Wes recognized how enjoyable the “work” was for him, carving the path for his career. He has served as Slippery Rock University’s Intramural Sports Graduate Assistant and Assistant Director, Programs at both Ashland University and Clemson University.
Wes finds motivation each day by interactions amongst campus recreation staff and students who utilize campus recreation facilities and programs. This stems from his most valuable life lesson: “In life, it is more about how you impact others not how others impact you.”
Outside of work, you can find Wes spending time with family, exercising, golfing or watching movies. Roberto Clemente is his role model, but his daily inspiration comes from his “wife, daughter, and all that is good in life.” WARNING: If you want to talk sports, prepare for some serious Pittsburgh Sports fan enthusiasm...HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!
