DJ Freeez – Bowie State University 

HQ5A5078-510x765A Somerset, New Jersey native, I’m 22 and I attend Bowie State University! I host my own radio show on the campus that covers media and entertainment, but my real passion is within DJing since I was 16 years old! I have an ecliptic selection that will never leave a venue dry. I’ve built my skill around execution, music selection, and crowd control/interaction. When I came to college I had a goal to raise the school spirit, and bring the campus energy level through the roof! With that in mind, I’ve been told by administration that I’ve become the most impactful DJ in the history of my school; I’ve also been recognized as a student leader in past years. I’ve performed at the top clubs in DC, while still performing events on my campus, and nearby campuses including University of Maryland, Howard University, Morgan State University, John Hopkins University, and George Washington University. New Jersey campuses include Rutgers University, Kean University, William Paterson University, and Montclair University. I love music, and I love colleges!
