Lauren Jay

Admission Counselor

Lauren Jay

Born and raised in NYC, Lauren never thought she would live outside the city limits. After her family relocated to a suburb of Ohio in 2011, however, her point of view changed. She fell in love with the slower pace of life and sense of community that came from living in the “burbs,” and knew she wanted to attend a university that shared the same qualities. Lauren found what she was looking for at Denison University in Granville, Ohio, where she graduated with a B.S. in Biology. While at Denison, Lauren was a co-captain of the women’s soccer team and an honor board member for the Beta Zeta chapter of Delta Gamma.

Lauren’s time at Denison also inspired a love for Admissions, beginning freshman year when she became a campus tour guide. She loved speaking with students and their families, leading her to become a Senior Interviewer later on in her Denison career. In this role, Lauren assisted with various aspects of recruitment and enrollment for the Office of Admissions.

Lauren found her second home at Denison, and she looks forward to helping students do the same at DePauw University. Lauren joined the DePauw Admission Team in July of 2019 and is excited to bring great students to the Tiger Family.

When Lauren isn’t working, you can find her staying active at the Welsh Fitness Center, trying new recipes in the kitchen, or enjoying a pizza with friends at Bridges (a local Greencastle eatery). Lauren loves soccer and will never pass up the opportunity to play a pickup game.
