Morse College Council & Yale College Council

The Morse College Council (MCC) and Student Activity Committee (SAC) form one larger group in Morse College. This group is responsible for organizing many Morse events, ranging from Morse Formal to the Morse Ski Trip, and helping to create new Morse gear. Open meetings are held every Tuesday at 9:00PM in the Morse Common Room, and usually involve free food.

MCC Officers 2020-2021

Ariel Cohen ‘22

(Co-President)

  Ariel is a junior from Los Angeles with an infinite appreciation for the Morse community. When she arrived at Yale, she found her closest friends within the halls of Morse College. Although she has countless questions for the architect Eero Saarinen, Ariel could not name a better place to call her home away from home. When she is not studying for Cognitive Science courses in the Morse library, you can find her brainstorming knock-knock jokes for our weekly Morse meetings, pretending to be a walrus, exploring the Yale University Art Gallery, planning meetings for Smart Woman Securities, sorting out her sorority’s budget, and brunching with friends! She cannot wait to meet all the new incoming Morsels! #MorseAlwaysWins

Amy Ren ‘22

(Co-President)

  Amy is a sophomore from New York City who loves Morse and basically lives in the dining hall. When she’s not there, she is probably working at Yale Admissions as a Recruitment Coordinator or running around looking for friends to talk to. She loves children and volunteers as a tutor for 7th graders through SquashHaven. Amy is a Psychology major who hopes to one day pursue education reform in America. If you see her jumping around Morse being excited about something, say hi! She’ll be more than happy to get to know you.

Gabe Broome ‘23

(Vice President)

  Gabe Broome is a member of the class of 2023, a First-Year Representative, and the Vice President of MCC. He’s from Meridian, Mississippi, and he LOVES MORSE! When he’s not picking up food for MCC or talking at one of our meetings, he’s probably playing ultimate frisbee for Yale’s club team, Superfly, or working his job as a Morse College event aide. He’s (probably) a Computer Science major and he looks forward to seeing all of you (yes, you) at the MCC meetings (Tuesdays at 9 p.m. in the Morse Common Room)! 

Wyatt Nabatoff ‘22

(Treasurer)

  Wyatt Nabatoff is a junior in Morse College from Charlotte, North Carolina. Due to his love for problem solving, he is majoring in Mechanical Engineering along with a certificate in Statistics and Date Science. While on campus, Wyatt is often found spending his free time playing intramural sports for the greatest residential college (something he highly recommends) or eating food at a Morse College Council meeting (where he has served as a First-Year Representative, Historian, and Student Activity Committee member). This year, he is really looking forward to serving all Morsels as their treasurer in order to utilize Morse’s budget to hold great events for the Morse community.

Carmen Ozonas ‘22

(Secretary)

  Carmen Ozonas is a junior in Morse College double-majoring in Political Science and History of Science, Medicine, and Public Health. She was born and raised in a small town in Puerto Rico, where she has lived her whole life. When she’s not having leisurely meals in the Morse dining hall (the best one!), working in the Morse library (the best one!), or relaxing in the college’s court yard (yes AGAIN, the best one!) with friends, you’ll probably catch her in Sterling or doing community service through her other extracurriculars. Other than MCC, she is also a board member of Bridges and Community Health Educators, through which she gives English lessons to immigrants in the community and health/sexuality workshops at New Haven public high schools. She looks forward to getting to know all of the first-years at the MCC’s upcoming activies!

Melat Eskender ‘23

(SAC Chair)

  Melat Eskender is a sophomore at Morse college and a prospective Political Science and ER&M double major. She currently runs the Yale Students for Bernie chapter on campus, volunteers with the Yale Undergraduate Prison Project at Manson Youth Prison, and is a leader in Yale Young Democratic Socialists of America.

Sam Woo ‘22

(SAC Chair)

  Sam is a junior at Morse College studying Molecular, Cellular, Developmental Biology and Data Science. From Northbrook, Illinois, he likes to jam to music with his guitar, explore the restaurants of New Haven, and take photos of nature during his free time. Outside of MCC, Sam is involved in THiNK (There’s Hope in North Korea), Yale College Council, and UCW (United Church of Westville). He loves Jesus and MORSE! He’s looking forward to talking with all the Morsels and just living life to the fullest.
