About Nathan 

Nathan joined the RecSports staff in 2010. Walker graduated from Notre Dame in 2002 with a Bachelor's in History and Computer Applications. He went on to receive his Master's in Educational Leadership-Higher Education Administration from Western Michigan University in 2009. Under Walker's leadership the boxing programs have donated a record amount of money to Holy Cross Missions in Bangladesh and East Africa, primarily through women's Baraka Bouts and men's Bengal Bouts. Prior to coming to Notre Dame, Walker implemented varsity athletics at Holy Cross College and served as the Athletic Director for five years.

Nathan's favorite aspect of campus recreation is working with students. Being able to use athletic competition as the vehicle for student development is very rewarding and help fuel individuals positive energy to accomplish their goals.

Outside of the office he enjoys spending time with family doing a variety of activities. Nathan enjoys exercising and coaching boxing and teaches a high intensity interval training class.
