UNIVERSITY
10 things to know for fall semester
Excitement is in the air as students, faculty and staff prepare for the start of the new academic year, with most students moving in this weekend and classes starting next week. Here are 10 things to keep in mind as the university transitions to full on-site capacity.

 

CAMPUS
Emory ready to WOW undergraduates with welcome activities
EmoryWOW, six weeks of activities to welcome undergraduates back to campus, launches this week. In addition to first-year orientation, sophomores get three days of events, and juniors and seniors are invited to a blowout carnival — all before fall semester begins.

 

CREATIVITY
Emory Arts Fellowship program announces inaugural cohort
As the inaugural Emory Arts Fellowship program fellows, Masud Ashley Olufani and Tom Zhang will spend the year teaching undergraduate classes and partnering on courses with Emory faculty.

TECHNOLOGY
Emory students advance artificial intelligence with a bot that aims to serve humanity
A team of six Emory computer science students have developed a chatbot capable of making logical inferences that aims to hold deeper, more nuanced conversations with humans than have previously been possible. Christened "Emora," the chatbot has been designed to help first-year college students navigate a new way of life.

 

ACCOMPLISHMENT
Emory alumna nominated as solicitor general
President Joseph R. Biden has nominated alumna Elizabeth Prelogar to become the next solicitor general at the U.S. Department of Justice. She has served as acting solicitor general since January.

 

SUPPORT
Explore career pathways through the humanities with Alumni Connections program
During the past year, Emory undergraduates and alumni connected through virtual panels showcasing how valuable an education in the humanities is to a wide range of career fields.

IMPACT
Saving mothers' lives
Nurse midwife and researcher Alexis Dunn-Amore and master's student Katiana Carey-Simms take on the maternal mortality crisis, which disproportionately impacts Black women.
