CAMPUS
Meet Emory's Class of 2023
Bright and talented, Emory's new first-year class arrived on campus this week primed to step into college life. Together, the Class of 2023 comes to Emory representing some of the nation's most promising young scholars.

 

IMPACT
Students spoke, Emory listened — and the result is a range of change
Input from students has led to some changes this semester, from increasing mental health staff to helping guide food choices in the new student center. Check out three areas where your voices have made a difference.

PERSPECTIVES
'Conversations with Claire': Ambassador Andrew Young
As we mark the 56th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, Emory President Claire E. Sterk talks with civil rights icon Andrew Young about what he and King would be doing if King were still here today.

 

RESEARCH
Skeletal shapes are the key to rapid recognition of objects
A new study from Emory psychologists finds that while the outer shape of an object is important for rapid recognition, the object's inner "skeleton" may play an even more important role.

LITERATURE
Emory authors shine at the Decatur Book Festival
Tens of thousands of book lovers are expected to visit Decatur this weekend for the AJC Decatur Book Festival, presented by Emory. Planning to go? The schedule includes more than 20 Emory faculty participating in sessions, plus book signings featuring Emory faculty, staff and alumni.

SCIENCE
Chemists teach old drug new tricks to target deadly staph bacteria

COMMUNITY
Migrant farm workers get free health screenings from Emory nursing students
For two weeks each summer, a program led by Emory's Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing provides vital health care to migrant farm workers and their children in southwest Georgia.

 

CONNECTIONS
Klamath Henry brings new focus to Native American art at the Michael C. Carlos Museum
After graduating from Emory in May, Klamath Henry spent her summer finding ways to increase awareness of the Native North American gallery at the Carlos Museum, including creating a new SmARTy Pack activity for young visitors.

 

ARTS

After a summer trip to New York to study "From Street Art to the Gallery," students plan to create their own art project on Emory's Oxford College campus.

 

DISCOVERY
