Photos: Coca-Cola Toast and Candlelight Crossover
May 8, 2017
Undergraduates in the Class of 2017 gathered May 4 for the Candlelight Crossover, a treasured Emory tradition marking their transition from students to alumni.
Following Class Day in Glenn Memorial Auditorium, students gathered for a reception at the Emory Conference Center Hotel, concluding with a Coca-Cola Toast led by Emory President Claire E. Sterk and religion professor Bobbi Patterson, similar to the toast that welcomed them to campus four years ago.
Holding candles, students then crossed the Emory bridge over Houston Mill Road to the Miller-Ward Alumni House, where they were welcomed into the family of Emory alumni.
