Emory's unofficial mascot rose from the dead to walk the campus on Monday, kicking off the annual celebration of Dooley's Week. Accompanied by his black-clad entourage, Dooley, the skeletal Lord of Misrule, heralds a week of activities based on this year's theme, "Dooleywood."
Dooley's Week continues through Saturday with these remaining events:
Wednesday, April 6
The Student Programming Council event "Old Hollywood" will be in Asbury Circle from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.
"During this event we will have a limo stationed for photos, King of Pops, popcorn, food trucks, as well as a station to create your own flip books," says Dooley's Week co-chair Emily Warner, 17B.
Another film screening, "Love Jones" from the Black Student Alliance, will be at 8 p.m. in Harland Cinema.
Thursday, April 7
"Toy Story," the throwback movie, will be screened at 5 p.m. in Eagles Landing.
Thursday's concert will feature DJ Khaled, who will perform at 8 p.m. at McDonough Field.

"Urban Dance: Emory," a performance by multicultural dance groups, including hip-hop groups, is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. in Asbury Circle.
Comedian Pete Holmes performs at Glenn Memorial Auditorium, with doors opening at 7 p.m.
The Latino Student Organization hosts "Noche de Máscaras" from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. in Cox Hall Ballroom, bringing the community together to celebrate Latin culture with dancing, great desserts and a general good time, says Bessie Frias, 18C.
Saturday, April 9
The Chainsmokers will be this year's artist for the Dooley's Ball concert, considered the highlight event of Dooley's Week. They will perform at McDonough Field at 8 p.m.
Prior to The Chainsmokers' performance, a block party on sorority and fraternity lawns will be held from 3 to 5 p.m.
There will also be a pre-concert Dooley's Ball Picnic at 6 p.m. on the Freshman Quad. "Bring a blanket and friends," says Warner. Food will be provided by Emory Dining.
