This page is a record of well-known, beloved, and/or despised staff from EST and the many stories collected about them.

Residential Staff


Thaddeus was the Residential Dean at Easton and Fredrick for many years. He had been an SRA before that. He did not return to Easton in 2005, after being there for two years, because he was working on his dissertation to become Dr. Thaddeus. His current whereabouts are unknown.

According to returning RA Jeff Murphy, Thaddeus unfortunately did not succeed in his doctorate... yet. He is, however, teaching in the Religion and Philosophy department at High Point University in High Point, NC.

He has a FLAAR card named after him.

Matt Weber

One of the 3 creators of FLAAR and would run Star Wars Galactic Senate at least once person session (2003-2005).

Jeff Murphy

Another creator of FLAAR; always run odd activities (2003-2005, 2007, 2009).

Raughley Nuzzi

Commemorated here for general awesomeness. It would take too long to explain everything, that's how awesome he is. Raughley has since gone on to serve as DRL and Site Director at several sites including JHU.

Spencer Knoll

Played Casino owner and cafe owner, Moneybags. Was there for three years and went to Easton as a student too. (runs How to be Awkward activity). Several years as an RA before serving as SRA. Frequently ran Braveheart and teamed with Steve to produce French and Canadian Bravehearts.

Aaron, Justin, Jeremy

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>

John Guido

Known for being a past CTY camper and his frequent use of the words "Swag" and/or "Boss". One of the most well-known and liked. Very charismatic and all his activities were hilarious. John continued the precedent of "Half Casual" Friday, after Thomas James Gillett. John pioneered "Eunice" (See Easton 14.2 for details on Eunice). 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.

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.

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.

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.

James "Jim" "J-Savage" Daniel

More known as RA Jim, famed at 16.1. Exorcised demons. 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.

Heather canceled the first dance due a "tornado warning," shrunk the available area for quad time and hunkered down on student freedom in a lot of ways, including but not limited to:

  • Deeming grass orgies CTY-I
  • Calling Tyrone a "gang leader"
  • Banning foursquare during quad time
  • Incessantly patrolling Keefe as if something catastrophic was about to happen
  • Blaming SRA John for a lot of the issues she was clearly responsible for
  • Not leaving well enough alone in terms of how halls and hall meetings were run
  • Absolutely losing it on Keefe 2 and respective RAs Jim and Mark for a small group of boys that went out on the quad without supervision for 5 minutes after dinner

Notable Staff/TAs

Swagmaster Steve

YS Writing TA. Steve was an Easton RA for four years (07.1/07.2, 08.1, 09.1, 12.1/12.2). Eventually he became YS WRIT TA with Gregg Murray in 13.1, 14.1/14.2, and 15.1/15.2. He was known for his talent show performances where he took song lyrics from that summer's popular songs and turned them into a spoken word performance.

Chanel Grider

Probably the best TA and friend to ever exist. CiCi. Chananay is a nickname not favored. Avid Nicki Minaj fan and always wearing an anklet with little bells on it and often a beanie. When you hear the anklet you know shes close. 15.1-15.2 PSYC.A class called "squadlings" by her. And she can dance. And step. Very well. Apparently knows a single finger tutting sequence but would never show it to us. Previous CTYer. Graduated college at 18 years old. 18! Dominates (or attempts to) in four square. Fangirl of Steven Universe <3 CICI WE LOVE YOU.

Dashana Lane

Dashana was the TA for Psyc-A in 16.1/2. Known for being amazingly late during handoff and known for taking 'a longer route to class' to take her kids to Scott Hall, which was also a Pokéstop in Pokémon Go. She always handed out packets and played a lot of music to our request in night class.


The instructor for ILOG in 15.2 and 16.2. Widely known for getting mad at students for not wearing their lanyards. He has been known to sit a few feet away from the entrance to Upper Farinon Dining Hall, and get mad at students who don't immediately put their lanyards back on after getting swiped in. He has also been known to walk by foursquare games at tell students to wear their lanyards in the front by saying, "Wear your lanyard straight. It's not a backpack." At the final dance of 16.2, he signed students' lanyards. According to Memories for 15.2, a group of students found his eHarmony profile and "flirted with him because he was a bumhole who disrespected [them]."

Jeffrey Grenyo

TA Jeffrey Grenyo worked with CTY for three years, on the Foundations of Programming course. It was announced with much regret that Jeffrey had passed away on 26 July 2017. RIP Jeffrey, we CTY you so much, and you will always be part of our family at Easton. <3
