Aug. 31, 2021

Woodruff PE Center was filled with excitement Aug. 26, as first-year students competed in Songfest, a beloved Emory tradition where students from each residence hall perform an original song about their new home.

Judged by Emory administrators, the competition is fierce but friendly, and practicing and performing together is a great way for students to start making friends in their residence halls. This was the first time students got to participate since 2019.

Swoop, Emory's official eagle mascot, and Dooley, the university's skeletal spirit of misrule, were on hand to enjoy the competition.

This year's winner — for the second consecutive year — is the Complex, the housing community made up of Hopkins, Smith and Thomas halls.
