Carolina Hall signs are now up outside the former Saunders Hall.


The UNC Board of Trustees voted last week in a vote of 10 to 3 to rename the hall.

It was originally named after UNC alumnus and former North Carolina Secretary of State William Saunders.

Saunders was also a confederate soldier and founder of the Ku Klux Klan in North Carolina.
