INSIGHT
The psychology of thrills and chills
Are you a thrill seeker or a chill seeker? Psychologist Kenneth Carter is not a fan of Halloween haunted houses, but he has written a book coming out Oct. 31 about people who thrive on activities like entering dark passageways, sensing that something unknown and terrifying awaits around the next corner.

Students celebrated their love for Emory and Atlanta with "Swoop State" activities ranging from carnival-like games and mechanical football rides to live student performances and plenty of photo opps. And fun-loving Swoop was in the middle of it all, as usual.
