The University of Delaware Athletics Multimedia department announced the hiring of alumna Nina Raspa as the multimedia coordinator in August 2014.
“Nina is an extremely talented addition to the growing multimedia department here at Delaware,” commented Jimmy Smith, former assistant athletics director for multimedia. “She will help us continue to generate a digital presence and further develop the Blue Hens brand in an effort to create a better fan experience. I’m excited to have her here and Blue Hens fans will notice her hard work.”
Raspa is no stranger to Blue Hens Athletics as the Sewell, N.J. native graduated from UD with a bachelor's degree in communications in May, 2014.
During her time as an undergraduate, Raspa built a strong portfolio by spending two seasons as a multimedia student assistant under Smith’s direction where she executed video projects, directed and produced live broadcasts, interviewed student-athletes and coaches and displayed a comprehensive knowledge of Final Cut Pro X and 7 and Adobe Premiere CS6.
“I couldn’t have asked for a better opportunity than this,” said Raspa. “I get the chance to develop my skills while working for the coaches, student-athletes, teams and administration that I love. I am looking forward to my time here and continuing on as a Blue Hen.”
In addition to working for UD Athletics as a student, Raspa also served internships with the Philadelphia Flyers of the NHL and minor league baseball independent Camden Riversharks.
A Dean's List student at Delaware, Raspa was a member of Lambda Pi Eta (communications honor society), Beta Sigma Circle of the Omicron Delta Kappa National Leadership Honor Society, and the Student Television Network.
