Welcome back, GHers, and Happy Impending Spring!

When you return to the college, stop by the newly-hung Revisiting the Renaming gallery downstairs across from the Buttery and Cabaret. Thanks are due to Helen Tejada, Zach Ledesma, and Eddie Cavallin for their incredible work, which made this exhibit possible, and to David Foster and Kate Williams for their invaluable contributions to revitalizing the Fellows Lounge. It’s deeply meaningful to see Hopper students keeping the historical flame alive!

Twelve new decorative windows installed today in Grace Hopper College, the Yale residential college previously known as Calhoun College, celebrate the richness of the college’s community and contemplate the complex history behind its name.

The windows, which will be unveiled during an open house on Sept. 12, replace panes that had commemorated the life of John C. Calhoun 1804 B.A., 1822 LL.D, an influential champion of slavery for whom the college was originally named, and paid homage to an antebellum southern society that was built on the backs of enslaved people. The removed windows are now housed at the Yale University Library’s Manuscripts & Archives Department, where they are available for research.
