For the past decade, Emory's annual Quilt on the Quad, the largest collegiate display of AIDS Memorial Quilt panels in the U.S., has served as a reminder to anyone walking through campus. Usually taking up a large portion of the quad, the quilt was moved indoors to the Dobbs University Center (DUC) and Atwood Chemistry Center due to the possibility of rain.

In addition to Quilt on the Quad, Emory recognized the day with a parade,  led by the Mausiki Scales Common Ground Collective Band, an Afrobeat band that explores musical styles from West Africa.
