CONSTRUCTION
Digital tour offers glimpse of new Campus Life Center design
Before building begins on Emory's new Campus Life Center, get a sneak peek at what the completed structure will look like with this soaring simulated tour.

 

DISCOVERY
How young children perceive world is guided by genetics, disrupted in autism
Researchers have found striking evidence for the role of genetics in shaping a fundamental feature of human behavior: how children pay attention to the world -- what they look at, and what they don't -- is strongly influenced by genetics.

 

INTERNATIONAL
Global Connections trip explores protest, reform
For students in Emory's Oxford College, a summer trip to explore modern issues of religious protest and reform was inspired by a 500-year-old event.

 

HUMANITIES
Inspired by Zora Neale Hurston, students create art to reveal communities
An exhibition from an English class project on the art and work of Zora Neale Hurston is featured at Emory's Schwartz Center for Performing Arts through Sept. 1.

HEALTH
Surviving the unsurvivable
Sylvia Ennis was driving to work at Emory when a falling tree pinned her in her car. The Association of American Medical Colleges just honored her riveting tale of survival as the best medical story of the year. Take a look back at her odyssey.

 

INNOVATION
Using the stairs just got easier with energy-recycling steps
Researchers at Emory and Georgia Tech have created a device that makes walking up and down stairs easier: energy-recycling stairs that store a user's energy during descent and return energy to the user during ascent.

 

PROFILE
French professor helps students learn 'the art of living'
French professor Dalia Judovitz has spent a lifetime studying the nature of knowledge and how it informs our understanding of ourselves, inspiring students to ask deep questions inside and outside the classroom.

 

EVENTS
10 things to do for $10 or less
From exploring Emory's outdoor art to catching campus exhibits before they close, take advantage of these inexpensive, entertaining amenities and events in August.

INSIGHT
PhD pipeline: Students advocate for academic science
The future of academic science depends on young researchers, but only about 11 percent of PhD graduates land in tenure-track faculty positions. Laney graduate students share their complex perspectives on scientific research at universities.
