About Me

My name is Jacob Wood and I am a Resident Director here at Northwest Missouri State. I started as a student at Northwest in the Fall of 2013. My career in Residential Life began in the Fall of 2014 as an RA in Hudson-Perrin and then as Assistant Complex Director for Hudson-Perrin in 2016. After receiving my bachelor’s degree in Mass Media with an emphasis in Multimedia Journalism I worked part time as a weekend producer/reporter for KQTV in St. Joseph and then as the morning show host for Regional Radio KKWK in Cameron. I missed working with students and I missed my colleagues and family at Northwest so I left KKWK and made my way back to the Residential Life Department as a Hall Director. I love getting to see a student development in this job, because it makes getting up for work every day worth it. When you join the Northwest family, just remember, Once a Bearcat Always a Bearcat.
