Do you Bank at Wachovia?

Then the money that you generate for Wachovia may be going to support UNC-CH and The Dean Smith Center.

UNC Chapel Hill says Wachovia Corp. is the first company to score a corporate sign deal in the Dean E. Smith Center.

The Charlotte-based bank and the state’s flagship university have signed an eight-year, $9.1 million athletic-sponsorship agreement. Proceeds will be used to improve facilities, including the nearly 20-year-old Dean Dome.

The deal also extends a 2003 agreement that made Wachovia official financial-services sponsor for UNC athletics

    I feel dirty for working in the Wachovia Capitol Center (downtown Raleigh). You bastards!

    Banking wise, I’m grandfathered in as a State Employees’ Credit Union member (thanks for teaching, Mom).

    No. I’m a proud BofA customer. Any chance they will give NC State a similiar deal? 🙂

    I think that Bank of America is definitely the route to go!! Especially if you want to stick to Wachovia. It’s not like Wachovia really competes with any of the smaller banks in the state. BofA and Wachovia are definitely on different levels than the rest.

    You’ve got to love that another institutionally snotty item in Chapel Hill has fallen. They always bragged of how they were ‘above’ this kind of stuff….now the reaction is suddenly ‘favorable’ to the announcement. (See N&O’s article).

    Typical…trying to have it both ways.

    You gotta love the typical haughty response from our friends over there:

    Reaction to Carolina’s move appeared to be favorable — probably because most fans knew it was coming.

    Justin Johnson, a Fayetteville senior who serves as president of Carolina Athletic Association, said he supports tasteful signage.

    “As long as signage is done in a classy manner, in typical Carolina fashion, I think most students will be for it, especially if it’s going to benefit our athletic department,” he said. “We just don’t want to get carried away.”

    Gee whiz, you guys are wrapped way too tight……….. Hardees and several hundred businesses in the area support State, Duke and Carolina.

    And to think that the taxpayers of NC still give the UNC athletic department more than $1 million per year to operate the Dean Dome?

    One advantage for Wachovia in going to Chapel Hill: their signage in the Smith Center won’t get lost among the hockey paraphernalia.
