ETHICS
Emory Integrity Project invites community conversation
From chalkboards across campus to dining tables, residence halls and classrooms, students are invited to grapple with important questions: What is integrity? What does it look like?

 

AMENITIES
New dining options on campus include renovated Depot
The Depot, a campus landmark, reopened this semester as Kaldi's Coffee Roasting Co., with an extensive menu and completely redesigned interior. Learn about all of the new places to dine on campus.

 

EVENTS
September: 10 things to do for $10 or less
There's plenty to do at Emory this month. Beat the heat with a shady walk or run in Lullwater Preserve, explore new exhibits, learn from renowned scholars, and much more.

 

SPORTS
Emory sports teams look forward to strong fall seasons
The fall sports season got underway last weekend, with the Eagles scoring wins in volleyball, women's and men's soccer, and women's and men's cross country.

 

DISCOVERY
Scientists reveal differences in Zika infection genes
Researchers have found molecular differences between how the African and Asian strains of Zika virus infect neural progenitor cells. The results could provide insights into Zika's recent emergence as a global health threat and point to potential leads for drugs to protect brain cells.

 

ART
New works by artist Gonkar Gyatso explore Tibetan identity
The Michael C. Carlos Museum hosts "Family Album," a new exhibit of photographic portraits composed by Gonkar Gyatso. The Tibetan-born artist visits Emory this month to discuss his work and create a public art display with community input.

 

LITERATURE
Literary legend Pat Conroy remembered at Decatur Book Festival keynote
Five of Pat Conroy's friends and family members took the stage as the Decatur Book Festival kicked off at Emory, paying tribute to the late writer with personal stories and poignant readings.
