Campus Champion Mike Partigianoni

Campus Champion

Mike Partigianoni, the athletics equipment room supervisor known affectionately as “Parge,” does the necessary dirty work for SUNY Cortland’s sports teams. During a 31-year career at the College, Mike has handled daily laundry and equipment duties with reliability and humor. This year, he will wash the practice and game uniforms for more than 800 student-athletes and coaches. Mike, who owns an extensive personal collection of red and white shirts with SUNY Cortland’s Red Dragon logo, proudly wears one with the letters “BTS” on its back. The shirt perfectly communicates his “behind the scenes” career.
