Hello! My name is Jared Burgess and I am the Admissions Counselor for students who are interested in the Humanities, Arts, and Biblical Studies.
I have worked in the Admissions field for 13 years and thoroughly enjoy the opportunity to come alongside students and families as you navigate the college selection process. I have found it a privilege to meet and hear from incredibly creative, thoughtful and engaged students who are using the gifts God has given you to explore and change the world. It can be an overwhelming process, but we are here to help, so please let us be a resource for you.
What drew me to Taylor are probably the same things you are looking for in a college; the rich history, the intentional discipleship, an inviting community and a deep commitment to faith and learning are all characteristics I value and appreciate being part of here at Taylor. We would love to have you come to campus and experience it for yourself.
My wife and I keep busy with our toddler son and we enjoy anything outdoors, particularly hiking, and camping. Other interests include cooking, reading, and baseball.
