COLLABORATION
Pandemic conditions help fuel students’ business ingenuity
COVID-19 didn’t stop HackATL 2020, one of the most prominent hackathons in the Southeast. More than 230 undergraduate students virtually joined forces worldwide, created teams and set out to build a viable business in 48 hours and then pitch their ideas to judges, angel investors and venture capitalists.

 

SAFETY
Emory campuses under Tropical Storm Warning
Emory’s Atlanta and Oxford campuses have been placed under a Tropical Storm Warning by the National Weather Service. Emory is closely monitoring the potential for severe weather.

 

COMMUNITY
Emory joins with Latino Youth Leadership Conference to encourage students to attend college
After hosting the Latino Youth Leadership Conference in the past, Emory is at the forefront of this year’s virtual event, aimed at empowering Latinx young people to pursue higher education.

 

ENVIRONMENT
New lead screening method zooms in on highest-risk areas in Georgia
Emory researchers have developed a more precise screening index of areas where children are most at risk for low-level lead exposure in Atlanta and throughout Georgia. The work was led by Samantha Distler while she was an undergraduate majoring in quantitative sciences on the neuroscience and behavioral biology track.

CREATIVITY
November features virtual concerts, artist lectures and a live reading of 'Sovereignty'
One highlight of arts programs in November will be a live reading of "Sovereignty," a play exploring the politics and struggles of the Cherokee Nation. The performance continues the Michael C. Carlos Museum’s celebration of Indigenous people.
