Steady rain couldn’t soak the spirits of hundreds of students, alumni, staff and family members who turned out for Homecoming Weekend 2015. As usual, Dooley — Emory's unofficial skeletal mascot — enjoyed the festivities with his entourage, who carried umbrellas to keep him dry.
The Homecoming Parade stepped off as planned, although with a few more raincoats than in some years. Emory students rose to the challenge, with plenty of pep to counter the gray skies. Parade winners included the following:
- Organizations: Women's Water Polo (first), Emory Cheerleading (second)
- Residence halls: Turmilton (first), Raoul Hall (second)
- Greek Life: Delta Delta Delta (first), Kappa Alpha Theta (second)
Following the parade, the Homecoming festival at McDonough Field offered lots of fun despite the weather, with food, drinks, face-painting and other activities. The Homecoming concert with Indigo Girls and The Shadowboxers also continued without a hitch, bringing fans out of the tents to sing along to their favorite songs.
