Nathan Hale Williams

President | iN-Hale Entertainment | Class of 1997

We say Illinois, Los Angeles entertainment executive Nathan Hale Williams says ... Illini Union, "the central place of campus worship," as he remembers it.

"I literally did everything at the Union," says the iN-Hale Entertainment president. "I studied, rehearsed and directed plays and fashion shows. But most of all, I developed lifelong friendships and bonds there.

"Oh yeah, and there were many parties — some of which I can actually remember.

"It has certainly changed since I graduated in 1997 and become more modern; however, I still hope Illini are forging the types of life-changing friendships and experiences that I so enjoyed."
