Your class need not share the same fate. The Calhoun name can be changed, and it should be. Refuse to be complicit. Refuse to wear the shirts with Calhoun’s name that you are given. Refuse to repeat the Calhoun chants you are taught. And, most importantly, refuse to identify yourself as a member of Calhoun College. Do not waste your breath uttering a name as despicable as John C. Calhoun.
