Jon Richardson, from St. Louis Park, Minnesota, is a senior history major living in Loose Hall. He has been a Student Adviser (SA) for two years and will be on student staff again in the fall. He worked as a tour guide for two years, serves on the History Department SEPC, and was recently appointed the Library Coordinator for the Stonewall Resource Center, Grinnell's LGBTQ advocacy office. He's excited to start working in the admissions office as a Senior Interviewer this fall.
In addition to working for the college, Jon has sung with both the Grinnell Singers and Grinnell's male a capella group, the G-Tones. Once, while he was studying abroad in London, he almost got arrested for sketching Big Ben in his journal, which, it turns out, is against the law. He's thrilled to be a member of the Presidential Search Committee.
