Erik Patak


Dix Range

Hi guys! My name is Erik Patak, but people call me Pattycakes. I am a sophomore studying biomedical engineering and I plan to concentrate in cell and tissue engineering. I’m from around Albany, NY and the Adirondacks are pretty much my backyard. Here on campus I am part of the Club Ultimate Frisbee team, the Alpine Ski Team, and the Makers Club. As you can probably guess, I have so much free time! In all seriousness, my freshmen year was a great experience, URFOOT being no exception. I went on the Dix Trek last summer, and I can’t wait to lead it. If there is one thing all of you should remember, it is this: The safeword is wHiskey. If that reference is lost on you, stop right there and take a good look at your life. See you in August!
