Everett Residence Hall

Everett Residence Hall was opened in 1928, one of several new dorms built around the same time. It has been popular with students over the years: the Men's Residence Council named it the best dorm for the 1963—64 school year. Everett remained an all-male dorm until 1984. It is named for William Nash Everett, class of 1886 and a longtime member of the UNC Board of Trustees. Everett, a businessman from Richmond County, served in the North Carolina state legislature, where he advocated for the university, and later became the state's secretary of state. The memorials for Everett after his death in 1928 were especially effusive, a testament to his popularity. University president Harry Woodburn Chase said, "Few men loved the University of North Carolina as he loved it, and wrought so consistently for its development."
