Dooley’s Week 2022 brings a musical celebration across genres
Dooley's Week 2020 theme

Springtime at Emory brings Dooley’s Week, a longstanding tradition with students enjoying a week full of activities that culminate with a concert dubbed Dooleypalooza. The 2022 celebration — themed Dooley’s Jukebox — will be March 27-April 1, with all activities held in person.

“As we increasingly return to a sense of pre-pandemic normal, you can feel the rhythm of our student body coming back to life as you walk around campus,” says Thomas Heagy, president of Student Programming Council (SPC), the group that organizes Dooley’s Week. “What better way to celebrate than with Dooley’s Jukebox, a musical celebration of the spirit of Emory?”

Featured artists of Dooleypalooza will be Taylor Bennett, Bryce Vine and Dominic Fike.

Students provided feedback that they wanted the concerts to feature more engaging activities and more music,” says Heagy, a senior in Goizueta Business School. “We hope that our three artists, various food and activity stations, and after party sponsored by Emory Dining build an authentic music festival feeling.”

All events are free to Emory undergraduate students. For more details and additional updates, follow Emory SPC on Instagram (@EmorySPC).
