Jeff Depew, College Counselor

Jeff Depew started his admissions career in Texas, where he worked as an admission counselor at Southwestern University. In addition to recruiting across Arizona, California, and all areas of Texas, Jeff built relationships that saw increased visits, deposits, and yield from his territories. Eventually, he was ready for less travel and more long-term relationship with students, so Jeff transitioned into the classroom, teaching elementary students in Round Rock, Texas.

 

Jeff attended the University of Redlands, where he earned his bachelor's in communicative disorders and his master's in higher education. While in grad school, Jeff dipped his toe into the admission world as a graduate assistant swim coach, recruiting athletes to come swim at Redlands. 

 

Jeff was a highly accomplished college swimmer at Redlands where he won multiple NCAA titles, named a 16-time All American, and still holds Redlands records. But his most impressive accomplishment? Warming up in Katie Ledecky's lane at USA Nationals. While he’s no longer confined to 25 yards, Jeff loves adventure and staying active--he's hiked Half Dome in Yosemite, snorkeled the Great Barrier Reef, and loves road tripping and hiking. He has run half marathons every month since 2019, and he even ran a sub 3 hour marathon in March 2020.
