Hinton James leaves a legend and a legacy in UNC's most-populated dorm

Hinton James Residence Hall will turn 50 years old this fall.  Built in 1967, the dormitory — colloquially known as "Hojo" by first-years — houses 964 first-years and has 10 floors. The building, which is the farthest from main campus of all dorms and a 14-minute walk from the Pit, was named after the first student to arrive at UNC.
