Posts! / Tuesday: A Gnotable Gnomie!

Hi! I’m Lilla Brody! I’m a senior in Davenport. I’m a Theater Studies, Cognitive Science double major. I’m obsessed with my college and virtually never leave the confines of 248 York Street. All my favorite people at Yale are in Davenport. On campus, I do theatre (just down the block at 220 York, because I refuse to go any further), interview applicants at the admission office, and I have been a dive worker every semester […]

Hi Team! The final gnotable gnomie of the 2016-2017 school year is me (Isabel Mendia, DC ’18), the writer of this very blog! Davenport is one of my favorite places in the world. I’ve been an Aide here since October of my freshman year, have been a Dive Worker since my freshman spring, and have been the Davenport theater liaison since one of my first conversations with Barbara Munck that same year. I have directed […]

Posts! / Tuesday: A Gnotable Gnomie!

Hi, I’m Kyle! I’m a Junior in D’port and I’m studying Political Science. I spend more or less every minute that I’m not in class in the Davenport library, the Dive, or in my room watching YouTube, and I’m pretty sure that I’ve only eaten in a different dining hall once this year. I’ve been working as the videographer for the Yale Dems for most of the spring semester, and I recently finished up work […]

Hey I’m Kevin and I’m a junior in Davenport studying economics. I’m a heavyweight oarsman, a coffee addict (although even I appreciate the 100% good energy provided by Verb bars), and a Dive quesadilla craftsman. For me the best part of my time at Yale has been rowing on the Heavyweight Crew Team, the finest bunch of lads you’ll find anywhere. I think being on a team is such a highlight for so many Yalies […]

Posts! / Tuesday: A Gnotable Gnomie!

Hi I’m Andrew! I am what some people might describe as “athletically minded, but not really athletic”. I am neither big nor strong nor exceptionally fast, but I love playing any type of sport. Because of that, I knew Intramural sports were going to be important to me while I am here at Yale. Davenport had a long history of success before my freshman year, as we won the Tyng Cup back in 2014 to […]

Hi, my name is Emily, I am a sophomore HSHM Major. I am so grateful every day to be at Yale, not only because I love school spirit and the amazing opportunities Yale provides, but also because of the community we have here. Yale, and Davenport especially, creates such a home for its students that really encourages growth and giving back to the world that we all live in. Such community service is something that […]

Posts! / Tuesday: A Gnotable Gnomie!

Matt Czarnecki and André Monteiro are juniors in Davenport College, who have been suitemates since freshman year. They’re both active parts of the DPort Community, especially as André has been named the newest Dive Manager this past semester. But they’re more than just students and Gnomes, they’re entrepreneurs: We started Verb Energy a year and a half ago, and it has been an incredible journey. Verb makes energy bars with a cup of coffee worth of […]

Nick Friedlander ’17–Our resident “SWUG”

Posts! / Tuesday: A Gnotable Gnomie!

My name is Nick Friedlander, and I’m a SWUG that studies comparative psychology in the dog lab, does lighting design for dance groups, watches RuPaul’s Drag Race religiously, spills the tea constantly, and enjoys talking about how crappy boys can be. For me, Davenport has been a home over the past four years that has given me such wonderful opportunities to grow as a person and has lifted me up when I’m down. Being a […]

Nathan File ’17 & Davenport’s Donut Club

Posts! / Tuesday: A Gnotable Gnomie!

Nathan (Nate) File ’17 is a political science major who participates in such extracurricular activities  as the Yale Black Men’s Union and the Women’s Basketball Practice Squad. But, most eccentrically, he’s also one of the co-founders and leaders of Davenport’s very own Donut Club. Nate formed the Donut Club with then-suitemate Rob LaRose ’17 because Sports Illustrated ran an article last year about the Minnesota Viking’s Donut Club during the 2015-2016 school year. Rob is […]
