Jacob Rouse

Admissions Counselor

Where are you from?

I am from the magical and mystical city of Cypress, CA.

What did you study in college?

Marketing, B.S. Business Administration from PLNU.

What was your favorite part of being a student at PLNU?

My favorite part was definitely all of the memories made with friends! I can honestly say I was never bored during my time at Point Loma. There was always a road trip to be taken, waves to be surfed, and good food to be eaten. Doing this with a community of people that encouraged me and pushed me made it all the better!

What piece of advice would you give to someone who's choosing a college?

My advice to someone who is choosing a college is to relax... this is an exciting time! Yes, it is a very big decision - but enjoy the process. Have fun envisioning yourself on each of the campuses you are considering and be sure to think of all aspects of the university. College is a place that is going to be "home" for the next season of your life, so enjoy finding your future home!

Favorite place to surf in SD?

Too many places to name just one. But in ideal conditions with the surf pumping, the wind slightly offshore, and the water warm, nothing beats surfing Pipes up in Cardiff with all of the friends. On days like that, you will never want to paddle in!
