The Holmes/Hunter Academic Building on the University of Georgia campus is named for Hamilton Holmes and Charlayne Hunter, who on January 9, 1961, became the first African-American students to enroll at the university. The building's Corinthian columns and soaring balconies are hallmarks of North Campus, the oldest section of the university that runs directly into downtown Athens.
