Oberlin ExCo

Meet the Committee


EJ (he/him/his) is a fourth year politics major who also does sports, but we swear he’s actually a complex person under the surface. He just returned from a semester hiatus from ExCo Committee, during which he studied abroad in Jordan. EJ likes distance running, Chipotle, Netflix, long naps, and clear and direct statements. He also likes the ExCo interview process. He dislikes dirty hippies and passive aggressive statements.



Alex (they/them/theirs) is a third year Biochemistry major and Hispanic Studies minor from Denver, Colorado. Alex is learning how to run the ExCo website and make Google Drive as efficient as possible. They also specialize in data collection and analysis, as well as policy and performance review. They always seek feedback about how ExCo can best serve the Oberlin community, so feel free to drop by their office hours if you have any suggestions! When not working for ExCo, Alex enjoys spending time with friends, playing mahjong, and working in a biochemistry research lab.



Zane (he/him/his) grew up in Bellingham, WA but lives in Northampton, MA now. Zane is a politics major who might be interested in other things as well. He enjoys running and biking and being outside. He also likes cooking and eating food. This is Zane’s second year on The Committee and he spends a lot of time working on institutional memory.



Juan (he/him/his) is a second year from Chicago studying Biology and French. This will be his second semester working with ExCo and he is really looking forward to it. Juan loves Selena (Quintanilla) and singing alone in his room. Make a Naruto joke or buy him an iced coffee if you want to be his friend.



Liz (she/her/hers) is a first year from Ithaca, New York. This is her first semester on the ExCo Committee, and she is especially excited to work on community outreach. She is interested in Art History and languages, and loves hiking, working on bikes, doing pottery, drinking tea, and making puppets. Although she has recently begun to appreciate the wonders of coffee, her real love is any and all kinds of tea.
