Ross Fernstrum Assistant Director of Admissions


Primghar, Iowa

South O’Brien High School; Northwestern College, bachelor’s degree in business education/business administration

I’m the youngest of three kids. My older brother and my mom both graduated from Northwestern.

Favorite place to visit
My mom’s kitchen is tough to beat.

Favorite thing to do on campus
In addition to working in the admissions office, I serve as an assistant coach for the Red Raiders’ defensive line. I’d say a fall Saturday on Korver Field is really tough to beat.

My college search advice
Take the time to look into several schools and keep an open mind throughout the process. Visit your top schools more than once.
