INNOVATION
Unexpected Oxford
Hands-on learning is a hallmark of Emory's Oxford College, where students get the best of both worlds -- a small liberal arts college embedded in a leading research university. Take an inside look at Emory's original campus.

 

ACHIEVEMENT
Beinecke Scholar studies psychology to help children become more resilient
Emory junior Darien "Penny" McElwee has been named one of just 18 Beinecke Scholars nationwide. After conducting extensive undergraduate research, she plans to pursue a PhD in psychology, exploring how children develop resiliency.

 

INSIGHT
'Nutrition for the Performing Arts' course focuses on science behind peak performance
Part of Emory's Center for the Study of Human Health, Dan Benardot's class dispels common nutrition myths and helps students learn why nutrition matters to everyone, not just athletes.

 

LEARNING
Undergraduate researchers present their work at spring symposium
More than 100 Emory students presented their research last week at the Spring 2019 Undergraduate Research Symposium, held for the first time in the Woodruff Library.

HONORS
Four Emory College juniors win elite Goldwater Scholarship for math, science research

CREATIVITY
'Framing Shadows' considers lives of African American domestic workers
Spelman College President Mary Schmidt Campbell will join Emory professor Kimberly Wallace-Sanders and moderator Rose Scott of WABE Radio for a May 8 conversation titled "Framing Shadows/ Framing Lives."

 

COMMUNITY
Emory's Start:ME program helps small businesses in local communities
Led by Emory's Goizueta Business School, the Start:ME business accelerator program provides support and grants to entrepreneurs in Clarkston, East Lake and Southside Atlanta. Get to know the businesses in the spring 2019 cohort, which account for more than $1.7 million in revenue and 65 jobs.

 

FACULTY
Two new basic science chairs reflect One Emory focus on collaborative research
Two new chairs in the basic sciences in Emory School of Medicine are the result of an effort to promote and support collaborative research among fundamental scientists across the university through the One Emory framework.

SPORTS
Emory teams win three UAA championships in one weekend
