Emory Insider: Traditions
 
Emory Insider

 

The Coca-Cola Toast: Each fall, the Coca-Cola Toast welcomes new Emory students to campus; each spring, graduating students raise a Coke bottle to bid farewell to their college years. The tradition commemorates Emory's relationship with The Coca-Cola Company, including Asa Griggs Candler's 1914 "Million Dollar Letter" and Robert W. and George Woodruff's 1979 gift of $105 million.
