Nico Campuzano

Masters in Information Systems


Campuzano earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Portland, carrying a 3.62 GPA as a computer science major.

He is now pursuing a M.S. in Information Systems at the University of Pittsburgh, where he boasts a 3.65 GPA.


Campuzano resembles what it means to be a leader on and off the field.

Transferring in last season during COVID-19, Campuzano was immediately named the starting goalkeeper for the Panthers. His leadership qualities have translated onto the field, helping lead a Panther defense to the best season in program history, a 16-4 record and a NCAA College Cup appearance.

Unselfish and willing to work day in and day out, Campuzano has put maximum effort into his goalkeeping skills, as well as in the classroom.


Campuzano has taken part in multiple team outings to help the local community in both Portland, Oregon and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Previous community service initiatives have included distribution of food at a local Oregon Food Bank, sorting and delivering clothes to the Pittsburgh Hill District, and reading children’s books to kids in both English and Spanish.


In just one season, Campuzano etched his name in the Pitt record books and can be argued as having the best single-season goalkeeping performance in school history. The Panthers finished 16-4 during the 2020-21 season, with Campuzano being credited with all 16 victories and a new single-season school record for wins in a season. He tallied 10 saves in the third round of the NCAA Tournament against UCF, aiding Pitt to the Elite Eight with a 3-0 shutout.

His accolades during that season included United Soccer Coaches first team South All-Region, All-ACC first team, All-ACC Tournament Team, and All-ACC Academic Team.

In just a season and a half - as he has played in all seven games as of writing - he is sixth all-time at Pitt in minutes played.
