In March of 2012, Wes­ley Col­lege Direc­tor of Admis­sions Art Jacobs took his leave and retired after 22
years of ded­i­cated work in the Admis­sions Office.

“Wes­ley was always a won­der­ful insti­tu­tion,” Jacobs says, recall­ing how much the school has changed since he joined the staff. “The size, both with the pop­u­la­tion and the facil­i­ties, wasn’t as large as it is today,
and the school’s diver­sity has grown in leaps and bounds.” Jacobs adds that he cred­its Wesley’s recruit­ing staff over the years for their tremen­dous con­tri­bu­tions to where Wes­ley Col­lege is today.

Jacobs says intro­duc­ing incom­ing stu­dents to Wes­ley Col­lege and let­ting them see all it has to offer, as well as see­ing those same stu­dents walk across the stage in the grad­u­a­tion cer­e­monies, were some of his favorite expe­ri­ences of being at Wesley.
