Stiles Aides

Office Aides

Stiles Office Aides are stewards and ambassadors of the Ezra Stiles Community.  They are responsible for sorting mail and packages, running the DVD and Game Library, dispensing candy, helping with room lockouts, and organizing Fiesta Fridays in the College Office. Aides also help work Teas, fellows’ dinners, study breaks, and other Stiles events.

Hafsa Abdi

Hafsa is a junior Stilesian from the beautiful Northern Virginia. Deciding between majors is difficult but picking an ice cream flavor in the dining hall is easy (chocolate chip cookie dough is a must). If she isn’t making creative desserts she’s probably in a theater somewhere, working as the Dramat’s Production Officer. Hafsa also enjoys working as a Matriculate advising fellow and watching Korean dramas. She is excited to see all of your smiling faces in the office this year!

Thomas Atlee

Thomas is a native Angeleno and reps his city hard. A junior in the college, he is an economics major with a big interest in urban studies. An active member of Stiles’s IM soccer and broomball teams, Tommy has a passion for both watching and playing sports. Thomas is a member of the Catholic Center at Yale. Thomas is definitely stoked to meet all the new fresh-moose (or first-moose now) so drop in sometime and say hi!

Bessie Bauman

Bessie fell in love with Ezra Stiles at first sight, despite what some may some about Eero Saarinen’s architectural choices. Bessie loves both participating in and planning Ezra Stiles events (especially attending Ezra Stiles College Council meetings, as she is secretary). If not somewhere in Stiles, she can be found volunteering as a tax preparer for VITA, practicing Spanish, or frequenting bubble tea spots with friends. She is interested in many subjects, some of which include economics and statistics. Bessie hails from Olathe, Kansas and enjoys hearing all of the jokes people have about the Wizard of Oz. Bessie’s special talents include laughing especially loud and exhibiting moose pride. By the way, she knows she isn’t in Kansas anymore.


Marty Chandler

Marty is a Sophmoose from the suburbs of Seattle who loves Starbucks, trees, and the rain, as you might expect. Around campus, you’ll see him stage-managing or acting in numerous plays and musicals, getting distracted by (and subsequently petting) cute dogs walking around campus, performing with Lux Improvitas, and repping Stiles in IM Pickleball! Be sure to stop by the office and ask him about the Theater Studies and Cognitive Science majors, his knitting hobby or YouTube channel, birds(!), study abroad (he went to Spain!), his Star Wars and Parks and Rec obsessions, or the story of when he cried into the laps of his fellow Stiles Aides at Avengers: Infinity War.

Jackson Cole

Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Jackson enjoys the finer things in life: James Bond movies, Yale football games, and Stiles Buttery chicken quesadillas. As a junior, Jackson has spent enough time in New Haven to have made up his mind about pizza,  and while he considers Modern to be his favorite New Haven apizza, Stiles’ vaunted pizza holds a special place in his heart. Majoring in Ethics, Politics and Economics, Jackson wants to be involved in education in his hometown Dallas in the near future. Jackson loves meeting new Stilesians, so come stop by the office to say hello or chat it up!

Amy DePoy

Amy is a senior in Stiles who loves all things Harry Potter. Her crowning achievement was meeting Daniel Radcliffe when she was studying abroad in London sophomore year! As you can probably tell, Amy loves all things books, so if you have any recommendations (or want some!) please stop by and talk to her! You can usually find Amy in the office or getting a crepe.

Aivy Duong

A proud Bay Area native, Aivy is a sophomore Stilesian who is currently pursuing the pre-med track. At Yale, Aivy spends most of her time in rehearsals because she is a member of not one, but two dance groups: she’s the president of DanceWorks and the practice coordinator for Yale Steppin’ Out! She’s also a board member of the Vietnamese Students Association (ViSA) and was an Associate Representative for the First-Year College Council. In her (rather limited) free time, Aivy loves to hike, drink sparkling water, or obsess over Dancing with the Stars. As a new Aide, she is very excited to meet all of the new Stilesians!

Justin Knapp

Hailing from South Georgia, Justin is a senior Stilesian who has dreams of being the first human to go to Venus (leaving Levon far behind). He firmly believes that time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time and you can often find him living out this motto in the Stiles buttery. “$ave Dat Money” is the anthem of his life. He hopes to double major in MB&B and Art History because he wants to go into the medical field and be able to keep up with the conversations at future dinner parties (though rumor has it he actually has no clue what he wants to do in life). His favorite movies are V for Vendetta and Good Will Hunting to which he has been known to make far too many references. In addition to being a Stiles Aide, Justin works at Global Grounds where he can often be found drinking coffee at unacceptable hours. In general, he loves to laugh and soak up the company of his fellow Stiles Moose!

Fernando Rojas

Fernando is a proud Moose from Southern California. As a History major, his life consists of staring a old maps and reading far too many “discourses.” His interests include: spoken word, Chicano/a literature, corgis, and impromptu phone calls to Papa John’s. He’s the Treasurer of WORD, translates for the Yale Law School, and volunteers with Asylum Seekers Advocacy Project (ASAP). If Fernando isn’t working behind the aide’s desk, then he’s probably in front of the aide’s desk eating from the candy bowl (stop him). He’s working closely with Taco Bell to open a new Taco Bell in the center of Old Campus. Come by and say hi!

Arvind Venkataram

Arvind is a senior from South Jersey who dedicates his life to making people believe he isn’t from the armpit of the nation. He is majoring in Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry, and spends his breaks in the lab composing poetry (sometimes in French) or new jazz lines for his beloved double bass. When he isn’t in the Stiles Office or at YSO Rehearsal, you can find him daydreaming, riding his skateboard, or daydreaming on his skateboard. Other things he loves: Chelsea boots, Kendrick Lamar, and meeting new Stilesians. 

House Aides

Stiles House Aides assist with Teas, fellows’ dinners, study breaks, and other Stiles events.
