The Oakland Post

Jeff Thomas



Thomas is a senior at Oakland University. Studying English and Journalism, he is a firm believer in the power of the written word. His goal with the Post is to produce stories that are meaningful to the community and to help other people elevate their writing skills in whatever way he can.


Growing up during the tumultuous Bush administration, Thomas has been concerned with the news for as long as he can remember. He views journalism as a moral trade, one that should be grounded in a devotion to helping other people.


Thomas’ interests outside of journalism include music, creative writing, reading, spending time with his family, and watching chiropractic Youtube videos. He hopes one day to work full-time as a writer and to eventually acquire enough money to pay one of those Youtube chiropractors to work over his mangled back.
