Nathan Hartman

Hello!  My name is Nathan Hartman and I am originally from Auburn, Indiana.  After high school I attended Purdue University in West Lafayette, Indiana where I graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Cell, Molecular & Developmental Biology in May of 2011.  While studying at Purdue I was very involved in residence life, serving as a hall senator for two years and a resident assistant for two years.  I found making an impact in young peoples’ lives to be the most rewarding experience I could ask for.

Here at Baker College of Muskegon I act as the Residence Hall Coordinator for Lighton Drive at the Baker Townhouses, overseeing students and staff in the area.  In addition to my responsibilities on Lighton I also head up the Diversity & Social Justice Programming Team.

In my free time I enjoy playing as well as watching all kinds of sports, including Indianapolis Colts football, Detroit Tigers baseball, and of course all things Purdue Boilermakers.  I also have a passion for music, and enjoy reading, playing games, and spending time with friends and family.  In April of 2013 I married my best friend, Alison, and so far she has enjoyed living so close to the beach!  If you ever need help or just someone to talk to, don’t hesitate to seek me out.  I’m here to assist you in any way I can and my door is always open.
