 Meet Mark Metzka! 




Hello and thank you for visiting my page and for the opportunity to share some things about myself.  I grew up near Youngstown, OH and attended Springfield Local High School.  From there I was fortunate enough to enroll as a student-athlete at Slippery Rock University.  I received a bachelor’s degree in Sport Management and a minor in Business Administration from SRU in 1995. 

I still reside in Ohio (Struthers) with my wife (Kari) and two children (Trey, 8 and Marissa, 4).  I have worked in the admissions office since 2004 and you will see me mainly travelling in Northeast Ohio. 

Outside of work, my hobbies include basketball, softball, golf (rarely), and riding motorcycles.  I am a regular at bike nights around the area.  The only shows that are “can’t miss” for me are Rescue Me and Sons of Anarchy. 

I hope to have the opportunity to assist in your college search by sharing all of the things that Slippery Rock University has to offer.  Look for me at your local college fair or at your high school, but most importantly, schedule a visit to The Rock!  We look forward to having you.  Thank you for reading my bio and best of luck this year.
