Hi everyone! My name is Mj Lindsey (he, they) and I am from the DMV (the one outside DC, not the car place). I study Biophysics at Keck and am pursuing a sequence in Gender & Sexuality Studies. And of course, I am very excited to be one of the RAs for the Kendry apartments (a.k.a the best dorm). I live with my little scaredy cat, Artemis [pictured], who is always up to trouble and happy to make new friends—so please stop by! In my free time, you’ll likely find me laying out on north lawn, people-watching in the cube, or drinking an unimaginable amount of coffee. I am also a huge music guy, so definitely share with me what you’ve been listening to (for me it’s been: Ari Lennox, Brandy, Victoria Monet, and Raveena). To any of my fellow AKers: looking forward to meeting you all! And if you ever catch me speed walking around campus, please say hi!

Around campus you will most likely find me scootering around in my head-to-toe pink outfit. My favorite place on campus is Roberts, where you can find me either tapping someone's ankles in the training room, drawing out biochem pathways on the whiteboards of the downstairs study rooms, or dancing with my teammates in the locker room before a CMS softball game. I am also the president of the Claremont Colleges EMS Club and am passionate about public health education, especially involving drug and alcohol emergencies. I cannot wait to work with the other North Quad RAs to host some fun quad wide activities and events! Stop by Wohlf 212 anytime to listen to music, make friendship bracelets, and ~vibe~

I’m so excited to get to know everyone! I can’t wait to bond with my residents over the fact that Benson has a shared kitchen right around the corner in our humble abode of BCB to make sweet treats in!! Some things I love are coffee, all types food, and music! I am absolutely looking for any and all new music recs (bonus points for some rock/alt rock recs), if you have any good tunes or just want to hang out swing by and say hello! I can’t wait to see you all next semester!

I’m especially looking forward to being the RA of Claremont Hall, hosting fun events under the lights in the courtyard, and baking nights in Janie’s Kitchen. In my free time, I draw digitally and create animatics (think digital storyboards!), play tennis, practice my photography, and go to the theater with friends!

I’m particularly excited to be the RA of Marks because I will love hearing students’ music from the Marks music room and hanging out on the outdoor patio and lawn. I look forward to hearing the unique stories of each of my residents and helping them through any of their college struggles.

Auen Hall

Hi! My name is Aileen and I am from Bethel, CT. I am dual majoring in international relations and history. I spent the last year abroad (SVP and Nice, France) so I’m so excited to be back on campus and to be one of the Auen RAs! On campus I’ve been involved with the Kravis Leadership Institute, the CARE Center, and APAM. I love the CMC community and how much opportunity there is to get involved, to grow both personally and professionally, and the many resources you can take advantage of! I also love, of course, the Collins chocolate chip cookies. I can't wait to put on fun events for Auen and South Quad as a whole #southquadbestquad! I love to read, travel (solo travel is the best), do jigsaw puzzles, crosswords, wordle, and all its spinoffs - worldle, quordle, nerdle... One of the best experiences I’ve had studying abroad in Europe is solo traveling to four countries in ten days with just my backpack.

Auen Hall

Hi everyone! My name is Aishat (eye-shaht) and I am one of the RA’s of Auen. I am originally from Lagos, Nigeria (home of the best jollof), but I grew up in Newark, NJ. I am majoring in International Relations with a regional focus on Africa. If I don’t look familiar it’s because I’ve been abroad in Ghana this academic year (that’s actually where I am in this photo). I have absolutely loved my experience, but I am looking forward to meeting all of you back on campus. I love to cook and I hope to invite some of you over to taste my famous wings. If i’m not in the kitchen trying a new recipe, you can possibly find me writing or reading poetry. I especially enjoy slam poetry. My favorite thing about CMC is the endless support I have received from faculty and staff, they genuinely make me feel really cared for. Along with that as a FGLI student CMC has given me incredible opportunities I could only dream of. I am super excited to learn more about you all!

Fawcett Hall

Hi y’all! 

I’m Emily, a public policy major from Santa Ana, CA. I love CMC’s tight knit community and I’m so excited all of you to become a part of it! 
I love coming home to south quad at the end of the day! It is so nice to have a little escape from the hectic scene on campus. I particularly love Fawcett’s floor lounges and community!
Can’t wait to meet all of you and run into you across campus, whether at Collins, the Soll Center, KLab, or the Fawcett elevator!

Fawcett Hall

Hello! My name is ErisJames Elliott but I usually go by Eris. I'm from Massachusetts but I'm here studying Psychology and Legal Studies. I enjoy competing in as many intramural sports as my schedule allows for, watching tv whenever I get a chance, and playing video games when I should be getting work done. I came to CMC because I could see during my preview weekend that the faculty and staff of this school care about its students, and work directly to help them, something that cannot be said for most colleges. CMC has a lot to offer as long as you are willing to take the time to ask, and I am excited to be here to help. I hope as the RA of Fawcett I am able to be a resource that can connect my residents to whatever information they might need. I have a blunt personality and will make jokes just about as often as I can think of them but when it comes down to it I do care about helping others and giving students the best opportunities to succeed. I can't wait to meet all of my new residents in the Fall!

Stark Hall

Hey, everyone! My name is Olivia, I am from the Chicago suburbs, and I am so excited to be next year's Stark RA! On campus, I am a PPE major, a member of CMC's Model UN team, and am a research assistant at the Salvatori Center. Last semester, I was lucky enough to study abroad in Paris and work in Jerusalem over the summer. I am almost always doing work and hanging out at the hub, but in my free time I love to bake, play tennis, and watch every dumb comedy that has ever existed. If you ever want to have some dairy free snacks, listen to someone speak french with an aggressively strong midwestern accent, or just stop by and say hello, my door is always open!
