Hello from Atlanta! My name is Jeremy Sale, and I am Assistant Director of Admission here at Oglethorpe University. I'm a native Atlantan, and I live within walking distance of campus with my wife and two dogs. I am a 2002 graduate of Mercer University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Art and a 2010 graduate of Drexel University with a Master of Science in Higher Education Administration. I have worked in admissions since 2003 and love working with prospective students and parents throughout the admissions process. I read applications and recruit students from Arkansas, Colorado, south Florida, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming. In addition, my in-state responsibilities include Fayette, Clayton, Henry, and Rockdale counties in the Atlanta metro-area and all northeast and southeast counties in Georgia.
In my spare time, I am an avid runner and have participated in a number of endurance events, including triathlons, dualathlons, and obstacle races. When I’m not training for a race (and sometimes even when I am), I spend my weekends following Manchester United. My wife and I also love to travel and have visited more than 30 countries.
Favorite spot on campus: Salamone Field, home to men’s and women’s soccer.
Favorite OU tradition: The Boar's Head celebration.
trivia: The Crypt of Civilization on Oglethorpe's campus has been hailed by the Guinness Book of World Record as “the first successful attempt to bury a record for future inhabitants or visitors to the planet Earth.”
Favorite Atlanta spots: The Vortex restaurant, Piedmont Park.
Other favorites: The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger; Top Gun; and the album Deluxe by Better than Ezra.
Most interesting place I've been: Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe; and the “highest court in the land”—the basketball court on the roof of the Supreme Court in Washington, D.C.!
