Thom Julian was born in Buffalo, NY but moved every two years of his life and finally settled in Strongsville, Ohio, during high school. Oberlin interested Julian because of its high achieving student base, liberal arts curriculum, and geographic location in near Cleveland.

Before beginning his position at Oberlin, Julian served as the Graduate Coordinator for Housing and Dining Services at Carnegie Mellon University. He is ecstatic to be part of the Oberlin community and work with students whom have a diverse range of backgrounds and interests.
