HONORS
Emory ranks 18th in new Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education college poll
In a new ranking of top colleges and universities in the U.S. by The Wall Street Journal and Times Higher Education, Emory University ranked 18th out of 500 national public and private universities.

 

RESEARCH
Vaccine against many common cold viruses is achievable
The quest for a vaccine against rhinoviruses may seem quixotic, because there are more than 100 varieties circulating around the world. But the immune system can handle the challenge, according to researchers from Emory's School of Medicine and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.

 

EVENTS
October brings internationally renowned performers to campus
October arts events at Emory include performances by jazz musician Branford Marsalis, R.E.M.'s Mike Mills and violinist Robert McDuffie, and "The President's Own" U.S. Marine Band.

LITERATURE
Emory celebrates Shakespeare as First Folio's arrival nears
With a little more than a month to go before the First Folio arrives at Emory, the campus-wide celebration of the world's most famous playwright kicks into high gear with exhibits, plays, films and more.

 

ACHIEVEMENT
Synergy awards support collaborative research among health sciences schools, faculty
The Woodruff Health Sciences Center has announced the six winning proposals for its first cycle of Synergy Awards. The awards support collaborative projects among faculty in the schools of medicine, public health and nursing, as well as other health sciences units.

 

AMENITIES
Construction set to begin on interim student dining facility
Work starts Oct. 3 on an interim student dining facility in the courtyard in front of the Woodruff PE Center. The facility will serve student diners during the construction of a new Campus Life Center.

PROFILE
