Fun Facts

  • Emory University celebrates Dooley's Week, named for its unofficial mascot, Dooley the skeleton. Dooley himself will wander the campus during this time to excuse students from their classes.
  • Because Coca-Cola Company founder Asa Candler was a large benefactor in the creation of Emory University, to this day it is considered poor school spirit to drink any other brand of soda on campus!
