Elizabeth Houston ’06

  • Associate Director of Admissions
  • Director of Systems and Technology


BA, Oberlin College, 2006


I came to Oberlin for college, and liked it so much that I still haven’t left! After graduating with a major in politics and a minor in computer science, I spent a year as an AmeriCorps VISTA in service to the local community. I joined the admissions staff in August 2008 and spent four years recruiting students and evaluating applications before transitioning exclusively to a technical support role in the office. I’m currently responsible for Sending Prolific Awesome Messages (SPAM) to prospective students, as well as making sure that all application materials are processed correctly. I maintain the admissions database and CRM, and will help you out if you have any trouble accessing your application status portal. Away from the office, I (mostly) enjoy parenting, hiking, and commuting by bicycle.
