Sunderland Hall, built in 1929 with funding from the Board of National Missions of the United Presbyterian Church USA (UPCUSA), was named for the Laura Sunderland School of Concord, North Carolina, which previously had closed. It was renovated in 1969 and 1979 with a major restoration in 1990 funded by the Public Welfare Foundation, Cannon Foundation, Arthur Vining Davis Foundation and Mr. and Mrs. Roger McGuire. Warner Commons honors Mr. Donald T. Warner, long-time trustee of the college and his wife, Claudia Marsh Warner.
Architect A. G. Lamont from the Board of National Missions of the UPCUSA designed several of the first buildings on the campus.
