Welcome to Ezra Stiles College!

Welcome Ezra Stiles 2021! Congratulations New Stilesians!

Hurray! The sorting hat has placed you in the college of moose, vikingswood-brick pizzaartistsmuralists, international students, athletes and IM superstars … and many of the best people on campus. We have a great history, and an awesome building with beautiful facilities, and you might be interested to see the online list of some of our more prominent alums. We can’t wait to meet you in August, and we hope you’ll bring your energy and excitement to this place when you arrive. In the meantime, explore this website, our Facebook pages (here and here), and the frosh counselor page. You can read about Dean Parndigamage (“Dean P”), and about me and others on our staff, at our college website. If you’re thinking about sending packages to New Haven, you’ll find information about mailing instructions in the Yale College First-Year Handbook and our Ezra Stiles site.

If your parents or other family members have questions, you might refer them to this website. And if you’d like to know more about New Haven, you might start here.

I’ll see you when you move into Lawrance Hall on Old Campus on August 25th if not before. Please plan on joining us that afternoon at 4pm for a welcome reception in the Ezra Stiles Head of College’s House — and bring any family members or friends who are in town. We are eager to meet them, as well!

You should know that Lawrance Hall is furnished — with beds and dressers and desks in the bedrooms, and sofas and chairs and coffee tables in each suite’s common room. Yale is providing us common room furniture for the first time, and it’ll arrive in August just before you come to campus. This means that you really shouldn’t need to bring any furniture at all to set up your rooms. (Lamps are often in short supply, however, so you might consider bringing or purchasing a light or two.)

Some quick requests: Please activate your NetID and start checking your Yale e-mail account since you will receive important messages over the summer. You will find important deadlines and other information at http://yalecollege.yale.edu/new-students/welcome-yale, and the Yale academic calendar at http://yalecollege.yale.edu/academics/calendars/2017-2018-academic-calendar.

We can’t wait to see you in August!

One Love, One Moose!!!

Medieval Knight 2017~

Stilesians from all corners of campus came together to don Viking helmets, wield their shields, and fearlessly raid the lesser colleges of Davenport, Pierson, Branford, and Saybrook! Ezra Stiles is, without a doubt, the greatest college of them all. And anyone who says otherwise shall have to answer to the Order of the Moose when when next we hunger for a raid….

Our massive schedule of events included our first ever paint night and our annual open mic/coffeehouse.
