Emory Insider: Traditions
 
Emory Insider

 

Wonderful Wednesdays: The Emory campus gathers on Wednesdays from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. in Asbury Circle. The tradition harkens back to 1967-1982, when Emory didn't have classes on Wednesdays. In 2006, Wonderful Wednesday was revived as a student-led event featuring activities and information from a variety of groups. The first Wonderful Wednesday of the new semester is Aug. 31.
