My name Is Jacob Steinhoff and I'm currently the residence director of Hillside Suites South at Jamestown Community College on the Jamestown Campus. I was a student at JCC back when the current locations of the residence halls were nothing more than a hill for people to go sledding on in the winter. After obtaining my associate's degree in liberal arts & sciences: social science, I transferred to the State University of New York at Fredonia to complete my bachelor's degree in history, also obtaining a minor in American Indian studies for the first time in the college's history. I then obtained my master's degree in physical education from SUNY Brockport.
During my time as a student at JCC, I was able to meet a variety of different people. The staff at JCC is unique in that everyone cares. While obtaining my master's degree, I did an internship at JCC. Here, I got to discover that many of the professors and staff that were here when I was a student, were here to help me yet again. When hired as a residence director a few years later, many of these same people helped me on the professional level as well. Having been a member of the JCC residence life staff since the beginning, I take great pride in trying to make each year better than the last. I love nothing more than a new program that the residents truly enjoy. I am very passionate about finding programming ideas that will reach everyone, as I believe when a student leaves the college, they should feel like a part of the residence life family, not just a resident. Please feel free to stop by my office in the South building.
