Jacob Ferguson

Residence Life Coordinator

Jacob was born and raised in Marion, Iowa (just a stone's throw up the road from the College). He studied at the University of Northern Iowa, then the University of Utah before “putting his heart back in the heartland” and returning to Iowa to work for Grinnell College in the Fall of 2019. He enjoys playing the guitar, eating super spicy food, gaming, and nerding out about anime. Jacob has a cat named Steven, 

What Jacob loves most about Grinnell College is the deep sense of ownership and engagement that our students bring into their college experience. Grinnell students care about their time on campus, and that gets Jacob fired up! 

Jacob’s main responsibility is serving as the Residence Life Coordinator for Smith and Younker halls, and the French and Spanish houses. Jacob is also currently overseeing Langan and Rawson halls.
