Students enjoyed fresh-squeezed orange juice and brunch as part the annual event commemorating Fenton, a Florida native who died in a car accident with three other students in 2003. As a Yale student, Fenton had ordered a crate of his favorite oranges from Florida to be shipped to campus for friends to enjoy.

Fitting, as “Cold never bothered me anyway” was probably his mantra as a Yale student.
