Ezra Stiles College Council (ESCC)

Meetings:  Mondays, 9:00 pm
Location:  Ezra Stiles Fellows Lounge (Entryway J, right next to dining hall and one floor up)

ESCC is the Ezra Stiles College Council, a group of Stilesians that meet once a week to help make Stiles the best residential college community on campus! From planning events for the college to supporting all our Stiles groups (IMs, SAC, the Big Sib program, and more), ESCC is here to make everyone feel heard and part of the herd! In addition to weekly meetings to discuss ways to improve residential college life, ESCC has sponsored college trips and events ranging from escape rooms, trampoline parks, and paintball to trivia nights and viewing parties for the Oscars, the Superbowl, soccer, and more. Attending ESCC meetings is an amazing way to have a say in residential life in Stiles and get more involved with the college. Everyone is welcome, so be sure to stop by a meeting for free food, Stiles pride, and your weekly dose of moose love!

2023 ESCC Board

Kelechi Lechi’ Akalaonu ‘25, President

Lechi is a Neuroscience major pursuing a certificate in French. Though born in Las Vegas, NV, he has bounced around the United States. Some of his hobbies are mixed martial arts, solving puzzles of all kinds, pottery, botany, and hiking. He helps out at the Yale Peabody Museum and Stiles Game Night, and is even a Chaplaincy Fellow! Fun fact: Lechi is terrifyingly good at approximating the time it takes him to go down a flight of stairs! Strongly preferring tea over coffee, he would be delighted if you asked to join him for a cup!

KJ McConnell ’25, Secretary

KJ is a junior moose from Charlotte, North Carolina majoring in Astrophysics (and potentially doubling in S&DS). Around Stiles, KJ also serves as an office aide and as a student kitchen manager! Outside of the college, she is an executive director of Yale Undergraduate Science Olympiad. In her free time, KJ enjoys reorganizing her playlists, dressing up her Snackpass chickens, and taking long walks (most of which end at T-Swirl).

Erin Murray ‘26, Treasurer

Erin is a soon-to-be sophmoose majoring in Chemical Engineering. Originally from the mountains of North Carolina, she is more attuned to harsh weather than the average southerner, and was very disappointed by the lack of snowy weather last winter (knock on wood). She is also a cluster tech for Yale STC and a college Advising Fellow for Yale Matriculate fellowship. When not working, she can be found experimenting with coffee brewing, tracking the growth of her Monstera, ‘Josh 2,’ and buying everything moose-themed off the internet to decorate her common room, having personally adopted the moose as her spirit animal.

Bahar Bouzarjomehri ‘25, Historian

Bahar is a junior majoring in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology (MCDB) from Olympia, Washington. When not studying for her pre-med classes in Bass, she enjoys doing research with her lab, engaging in advocacy with YUPP, and taking part in other student organizations. Otherwise, you can probably find her waiting in line at the Jitter Bus (the best coffee on campus!), hanging out with her friends, climbing at City Climb, or trying out food spots around New Haven.
