The three inseparable RAs; Aaron and Justin are brothers and Jeremy was their cousin. Whatever one did the other two copied, including rules. Especially known for being extremely attractive and therefore being stalked by many swooning girls.<on the last night of 12.2 during an extended lights out two RA's told a hall that the "triplets" were all married and had this whole big story to go along with how they were in their late 20's and early 30's. girls were screaming and almost in tears over this just to be informed once they got home via facebook that the stories were false>

Matt Holmes

Known for being Papa Holmes by his 15.1 Quad Squad Hall. Widely loved by Andrian, Kieran, Josh, Max, Jackson, Brian, Jesus, Andrew, Dario, Juan, Johnny, Daniel, Bryce.

THIR-TEEN, SQUAD. Former SRA (14.1 and 14.2).

Thomas James Gillett

Known for being a strict RA, who could "Drop the HAMMAH!" on anyone. When several CAAmpers ran out of their rooms to make Ramen on the last night, Thomas stopped them, saying "What on God's Green Earth are you doing?". Thomas has a fantastic sense of humer, and a great voice. He sang "Breakable" at the 13.2 Talent Show. He also pioneered "Half Casual" Friday, where he wore basketball shorts with high socks and dress shoes, and a button down shirt.

He was known for daring basically anyone to do the "Moby" challenge. Was the SRA in 16.1 and 16.2. Confirmed that he is leaving CTY forever. When camper Austin Szatrowski bragged about having 13 people in his room after lights out (at approx. 3:00am) on a group chat he forgot John was on, John replied with, "Dang. 13 people in one room that's boss" John, you will be forever missed. -austinszat 17:06, 30 August 2016 (EDT)

Alex DeWeese

Co-RA with John Guido in the McKeen basement during 14.2. An a cappella singer who sang and played piano with SRA Matt Holmes, RA Rebecca Comella, and Sayre Posey (violin) for a cover of "Say Something" during the 14.2 talent show. Blasted a lot of music during quad time on a speaker. Was our DJ for dances. Returned to Easton in 16.1, but departed for Haverford for 16.2. Along with Olabade and Ryan, frequently blasted and danced to Sweatshirt in 16.1. Ran Swashbuckler in 16.1 with a ridiculous pirate hat. Had students attempt (and usually fail) the Moby Pushup Challenge during Quad Time in 16.1.

Diane Um

Known as the USC student who every Asian male at 14.2 crushed over, Diane "Dayum" Um rap battled the "Recrapper" (CAAmper Alan) at the last dance, using modern and pre-21'st century rhyme schemes to defeat her opponent.

Charles An

Former camper at Easton and perennial RA. Always starts out as the biggest hardass but eventually becomes one of the cooler and lax RAs. Only one to complete the moby push up challenge, a feat rivaled only by the 12 labors of Hercules. Returned in 15.2 after abandoning Easton for Haverford. If you get to know him, he will impact your life become a part of your family forever. Many have attempted such a feat and it is said that only one has succeeded. No longer the only completer of the Moby Pushup Challenge. Omar Kenawy, Oscar Moreno and Nick I-Heng Tan all completed it in 16.1. He brought his dog during week 3 of 17.2 to an activity.

Allan "Nallan" Hall

Nickname "Nallan" given by RA John Guido to a camper became quickly popular. Known for not having hall meetings, instead informing his campers throughout the day. Probably the most laid back RA and person to ever exist, he would often give campers much more independence than advised. Won the Allen vs Nallan challenge in 14.2 by hula hooping like a champion. He was also really into LoL and Clash of Clans. 17.2 was his last year. His hall from 16.2 will always remember:

  Ryan Burns: "Would you care if we did a 6-person ISO in Austin and Matthew's room tonight?"
  Allan: "hmm, not really."

His philosophy is one of the greatest things I've ever heard:

  "Many of you are coming from environments where you're expected to play a particular role. Depending on what that is and the level of support you have, that can be very stressful. 
  Particularly true for "gifted" kids because lots of parents (mine included) have really high expectations."

Sayre Posey

Nickname "Sayre". Spotted often at the track, either running, jogging, sprinting, bear crawling, butterflying, swimming, bicycling, hiking, traversing the great plains, etc. She was a dope DJ at basically every dance. She's also probably the dopest violinist CTY has ever seen #violin #throwbackthursday #mozart SRA 15.1 and 15.2. Bristol DRL 16.1/16.2, then Easton DRL 17.1/2.

Patrick Flanagan

Nickname Patty. Known for awesome breakdancing and breaking rules while being chased in ghost hunting, including going on South College.

Patty Gea

Patty, or Patricia. She was an absolute fairy, was an amazing dancer, and is one of the best RAs. Often had dance wars with Patrick and the two together were called "Pat-Pat".

Olabade Omole

For having the hall that made no sense, was loud, and always late. Often played a Pentatonix remix, in addition to copious amounts of EDEN, before lights out and known for phrases such as "What is this tomfoolery?" and "Keep crying." If the chant "when I say Ola you say Bade" was heard, she was probably close at hand. Advocate for the blasting of 'Sweatshirt' in 16.1.

Timothy Wong

Timothy Wong, aka. Tim Wong. Had a great dance routine and always was happy. Will be back for more sessions. His hall likes to chant "I say Tim, you say Wong,". Was always really loud and could be heard from the other side of the Farinon quad. The phrase "Tim/Tim's walking/Tim's dancing gives me life" was often used when describing him. Famous during 16.1 for saying 'Oh shoot! Um..b word, n word.....' in the 'Awkward Lyric Reading' competition ("Panda") in Swashbuckler. Needless to say, he won Swashbuckler for his team that session. In 16.2, he attempted read "Trap Queen" for ALR but lost to Allan because, according to SRA John, he "did what everyone expected him to do." Famous for dancing to the Pokemon Theme during Swash and at dances in 16.1 and 16.2. A total beast at ERS.

Marvin Crawford

Awesome, role model to many. He liked music and art. Hope he doesn't get lotion in his hair tho. #CTYEASTON2k15

Allison Mullin

The Broadway superstar of CTY Easton. She had an amazing voice and did a duet with YS RA Miles singing 'A Whole New World' in the Talent Show. Was respected and loved by many campers. Ran HamJam with Alice in 16.1.

Rachel Hess

Notably 'almost got a concussion' when camper Ben Davidov shoved a pie in her face post carnival. She was also the crush of many boys in 16.1.

Ryan Judge

Ryan was one of the most famed RAs in 16.1. Hall members would chant 'RYAN! RYAN! RYAN!' continuously as they followed him. Ran improv activities as well. Much like RA Jim, loved Gordon Ramsay.

James "Jim" "J-Savage" Daniel

More known as RA Jim, famed at 16.1. Pied in the face during the carnival by camper Guido Secchiaroli, and also ran improv with RA Ryan and was an avid fan of Gordon Ramsay. After one of the campers on his hall was unfairly berated by the infamous HEATHER in 16.1, he told him "you don't have to give a crap about her." His hall then referred to him as "J-Savage." "Jim, we get it. You go to Yale." -Nicole Hom [1]

Liza Wolf

Famed in 17.1 for constantly being mistaken as a student, allowing 2 week long ISOs, and being rather chill and lenient all around. Never noticed that many of her kids in 17.1 consistently took 3 am showers. For some reason, reportedly doesn't like Tunak Tunak Tun even though it is a fantastic canon song. Her 17.1 halls count off was the lyrics to the Fresh Prince of Belair (Well this is a story, all about how my life got flipped-turned upside down). There's an article she co-wrote on Spoon University about her eating pizza for 5 days straight. Returned for 18.1/2.


DRL in 16.1 and 16.2. Universally hated by students and RAs alike. According to SRA John Guido himself, she is one of the huge reasons he will never return to CTY again. See Hall of Shame.

Shaheem "Royal" Irving

RA in 17.1, famed by being best dressed RA, singing and dancing but also infamous for making His hall's lights out 9:30pm as well as another hall's light out at 9:15pm. He was pretty lit until you didn't follow directions. On his day off his put together a Birthday party for one kid in his hall.

Gail Fletcher

RA in 17.1, 17.2, known for having the laziest hall on campus. She allowed them to take the elevator everyday, and overall didn't really care about anything until it got dangerous. Her hall in 17.1 was also known for their terrible countoff, messing up everytime.
