Roosevelt L. Thompson Dining Hall

February 18, 2020

In 2016, the College’s august dining hall was named after Roosevelt Levander Thompson (1962-84), an exceptionally inspirational Calhoun and Yale College student who died in a car accident during the spring break of his senior year. “Rosey” had then already accumulated many academic and other signal accomplishments, including a Rhodes Scholarship, and his achievements and his civic commitments continue to galvanize our College’s, Yale’s and other undergraduates.
