Renaming Third College

Title

Renaming Third College

Description

Third College is renamed in honor of Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, widely recognized for his dedication to civil rights and breaking down barriers to education (UC San Diego Campus Timeline, 1993).
While it is surprising that students would protest naming the college after someone as worthy of being our namesake as Justice Marshall, students were concerned that their history would somehow be lost along with the name Third (The TMC History Project, 2010).
