Every now and then, you meet someone whose name totally fits their personality. That’s Rah Jacob, Director of Advancement Experiences at Cedarville University.

Rah Jacob is a rah-rah kind of guy. He has a million-kilowatt smile, fun-loving personality, and a welcoming spirit that made him a beloved servant leader as a student, and now also as a staff member.

He is perfectly suited in his role to help current students and recent alums understand how vital they are to Cedarville thriving and being a place where future students can receive an excellent education and intentional discipleship under the authority of God’s Word.

Rah applied to colleges in the Chicago-area, where he’s from, but fell in love with Cedarville during his one-and-only campus visit. He made quite an impact as a student, serving as president of the Student Government Association, and also as co-host for Elliv, the year-end student-led talent show.

Jon Wood, Vice President for Student Life and Christian Ministries, is one of Rah’s  biggest mentors. Make sure to listen for the funny story of how Rah and Jon overcame a “ruff” beginning to their deep friendship.

Rah’s parents emigrated to the United States from India, and he and his family spent many summers of his growing-up years visiting family and friends there.
