After receiving pressure from students and faculty, Yale University will rename Calhoun College after a female alum, Grace Murray Hopper. Hopper was a female computer programming pioneer in her day. Calhoun College was named after U.S. Senator John C. Calhoun, but whose name was associated with slavery and it offended people.

Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera held an associate fellow position at Calhoun College and tweeted out his intentions to resign from the voluntary position due to this Orwellian and politically-correct move.
