INSIGHT
The psychology of thrills and chills
Are you a thrill seeker or a chill seeker? Psychologist Kenneth Carter is not a fan of Halloween haunted houses, but he has written a book coming out Oct. 31 about people who thrive on activities like entering dark passageways, sensing that something unknown and terrifying awaits around the next corner.

 

WELLNESS
Emory Healthy Kitchen participants end a course, begin a journey
The inaugural Emory Healthy Kitchen pilot program helped employees experience hands-on learning in nutrition, culinary arts, exercise, yoga and mindfulness. The 10-week program also is part of a clinical trial overseen by physician Sharon Bergquist.

 

COLLABORATION
Deans' Pop-Up addresses integrating aspects of liberal arts across campus
Faculty from multiple departments across Emory met at Oxford College to discuss how the Mellon Humanities Pathways Project and other cross-school collaborations can enhance students' educational experience.

CAMPUS
November arts events include world-renowned vocalist, innovative dance
A wide range of arts programs come to Emory's Atlanta and Oxford campuses in November, including a concert with mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato and performances by Full Radius Dance and the Emory Dance Company.

 

RESEARCH
Expedited partner therapy could lower rates of sexually transmitted infections
Research from Rollins School of Public Health shows that using an existing intervention that targets therapy to partners of men who have sex with men has the potential to decrease the number of sexually transmitted infections.

 

ARTS
Theater Emory presents haunting sci-fi thriller 'The Nether'
Choosing your own identity and indulging your every desire sounds appealing -- until you trigger things from the darkest corners of the imagination. Theater Emory's production of "The Nether" will be Nov. 1-17.

PROFILE
Emory alum Kristian Bush entertains the Homecoming crowd
Kristian Bush, one-half of the award-winning, pop-country duo Sugarland, returned to campus for the first time in years to perform at Homecoming 2019. He also took time to talk about his most recent band, his musical superpower and what homecoming at Emory means to him.

Students celebrated their love for Emory and Atlanta with "Swoop State" activities ranging from carnival-like games and mechanical football rides to live student performances and plenty of photo opps. And fun-loving Swoop was in the middle of it all, as usual.

Come celebrate on Wednesday, Oct. 30, from 1-3 p.m. with cupcakes (including vegan), King of Pops' special autumn flavors and a step back in time with music and photos from the library's early days.
