Jack Hefferon is the RA for the 3rd floor, living in room 319.

Jack Hefferon hails from Armonk, New York, and is majoring in economics with minors in journalism and theology. After three years of sworn allegiance to the second floor, he’ll be making the big move upstairs to 319 this year — and he really couldn’t be more excited about it. Jack writes sports for The Observer, plays on the club lacrosse team, and represents Carroll in a medley of interhall sports. In his free time, Jack enjoys dominating FIFA, Carroll Volleyball (now with lights!) and late-night trips to Reckers and Steak n’ Shake (he’ll probably drag you on a couple). He’s also terrified of having a room to himself next year, so come hang out sometime!


Michael Russell is the 2nd RA for the 2nd floor. He will be living in 203.

Hey guys! Congratulations on being placed in the best dorm on campus! My name is Michael Russell and I will be an RA on the second floor with my good friend and former roommate Tim Brazelton! I am a Science Preprofessional (pre-med) and Psychology double major from Bellevue, Washington, just 15 minutes outside of Seattle. Here at Notre Dame I am a TA in an undergraduate Biology lab, have led the freshman retreat, and have been heavily involved with Carroll sports. I’ve played, and was the captain for our dorm football team, and also play volleyball, basketball and lacrosse. I enjoy playing video games, listening to music and hanging out with friends. I am also a huge fan of both Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings. I religiously follow Seattle sports, cheering on the Seahawks, and hoping that the Super Sonics finally come back. If you ever want to talk, challenge me in any video game or just hang out, come to 203, the door will almost always be open! If you guys have any pressing questions, feel free to find me on Facebook, or shoot me an email at, have a great rest of your summer and see you in August!

Tim Brazelton is the RA for the South side of 2nd floor, as well as the entire first floor. He will be living in 216 next year.

Hey there Vermin! My name is Timmy Brazelton, and I’ll be the RA on the cool side of the second floor in room 216, where the door is always open. I am happy to be living down the hall from Mike "Worse than Tim at FIFA" Russell, the other second floor RA who's pretty cool I guess. I am an Accounting and Economics double major from Princeton, NJ, but I call Carroll Hall home. Last year, I served as Carroll’s Co-Frosh-O Commissioner. During my time at Notre Dame, I was President of the Triathlon Club and the Scrabble Club, worked as a Tour Guide, and was very involved with Student International Business Council. However, I had an epiphany and realized that Carroll’s way better than the rest of campus, got my priorities in order, and decided to dedicate myself to Carroll Hall for my senior year. When I’m not studying debits and credits, I enjoy running around the lakes, Netflix marathons, and a good game of FIFA. I’ve been described by my mother as “handsome” and “bless his heart”. Feel free to add me on Facebook (search “Timmy Brazelton”), and I can’t wait to meet you all in August!



John Hayes will be leading the hallowed halls of Carroll as dorm president for the coming year. He is double majoring in finance and economics and minoring in Italian, in addition to participating in Student International Business Council, Habitat for Humanity, Wall Street Club, Enactus, and several Carroll Hall sports. While originally from Western Springs, Illinois, (a very little-known suburb of Chicago) his years spent in the Southern California sun have left him with a combination of Midwestern values and California swagger. Notorious for his dancing ability, lack of foosball skills, and ability to Skype like a champ, this baseball fanatic is always up for a game of catch or watching his beloved Dodgers embarrass Alec Schoen’s fraudulent Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Purple Hayes will be living in 118 with Coosey K (Casey Karnes) and Diego “Sunny” Reyes, so stop by anytime to ask questions or say hey!


Alec Schoen is a sophomore from Orange County, California. He will be serving as Carroll’s Vice President (which many vermin question) for the next year. He plans to major in Finance and wants to study abroad in Australia. He plays football, basketball, and attempts to play lacrosse for Carroll Hall. On campus he is involved with Habitat for Humanity and tutors South Bend school kids. He will be living in room 205 with the Minnesotans Jon Weiler and the real Alec (Alec Fogarty). He’s always messing around in the dorm, and has the low GPA to show for it.


Jonathan Weiler is a sophomore mechanical engineering major from Minneapolis, Minnesota. He is the current Student Union Board (SUB) representative for Carroll Hall and is involved in Habitat for Humanity and ND Seed which is an engineering organization that builds bridges in Central America. He lives in 205 with Alec Fogarty and Alec Schoen. He participates in interhall sports for Carroll and can usually be found playing volleyball or quad golf when the weather is nice.


Alex "Big Beech" Beecham is a junior computer engineering and economics major. His hobbies include playing electric guitar, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and video games As tech commissioner he edits this webpage and can help with any computer problems you might have.
