After enjoying his first 18 years of life in Minnesota, Jordan ventured off to Pomona College where he graduated in 2015. He studied Psychology and Spanish, managed the student caller fundraising program, and served as a campus ministry leader. He also spent plenty of time hiking in the mountains and playing in the ocean—sometimes in the same day! One of Jordan’s favorite college experiences was spending a semester abroad through CIEE’s Liberal Arts Program in Santiago, Chile. And to satisfy his Harry Potter obsession while at Pomona, he was an avid member of the Quidditch team, which he promises is a real sport.
After graduating, Jordan dove into the world of college access through a year-long internship with a Los Angeles non-profit called Young Eisner Scholars. To deepen his knowledge about the college process, he decided to begin serving as an Admissions Officer at Colby College. Jordan’s favorite part of his role at Colby was working to increase college access for Maine students. Hoping to eventually return home, he was thrilled when he was offered an Admissions position at St. Olaf (where both his brothers also studied!).
Jordan’s passion lies at the intersection of college access and higher education, and one of his greatest joys is demystifying the college process for students and families. He believes college is an empowering experience that should be an option for every student, and he is proud to represent a school like St. Olaf which promises to meet every student’s financial need.
One month after officially becoming an Ole, Jordan already has a favorite spot on the Hill: the Natural Lands. He has joined his younger brother for long runs along the trails (in both summer and winter!), and Jordan admits feeling overwhelmed by the natural beauty St. Olaf students get to enjoy.
