Nate Hawley to Take Over Turntables at Rutgers Football Games
PISCATAWAY, NJ - Nate Hawley, a senior at Rutgers University, enters his final year 'On The Banks,' as the RFootball DJ inside High Point Solutions Stadium.
The Newark native became a staple within the RFootball program once Head Coach Chris Ash took the reigns last winter - waking up with the team to provide music for their offseason workouts.
But Nate is no stranger to DJing at RU.
He's headlined events like Dance Marathon, Club Alex (where the Alexander Library transforms into a nightclub) and other Student Affairs related events.
Simply stated - if you hear music on campus, Nate is not too far away.
And Nate is as focused in his studies as he is 'in the mix.'
He plans to graduate with an Information Technology and Informatics degree. He is a teacher's assistant at a Coding Bootcamp - a Continuing Studies Program affiliated with RU.
"DJing at the stadium was my biggest 'DJ goal,' as an incoming student," Nate said about the 52,000 capacity stadium. "I walked into the stadium my first year and said, 'Wow, that's the biggest stage on campus."
He also helped open Rutgers newest landmark - The Yard @ College Avenue - with its first RFootball Away Game Watch Party.
As an homage to the art of DJing, Nate will use turntables (Technics 1200) as his tool to entertain the players, recruits and fans.
