All In A Day. Kudos to Team Campus Life! During this February fundraising event for the Emory community, Campus Life had 184 donations to the university, up from 63 in 2017, substantially more than doubling our participation. But wait; there’s more! Campus Life donations this year totaled $36,126, compared with $7,941 last year, more than quadrupling our 2017 effort. University-wide totals also saw substantial increases, although not as impressive as ours. Emory donors, as a whole, contributed 3,415 gifts this year, compared with 2,246 in 2017, for a total of $1,002,251, an increase from $582,722 last year.

Asbury Circle to Close. CLC-related construction and the replacment of a steam line will impact Asbury Circle in two phases, beginning in August and extending through most of spring 2019. Construction fencing for phase 1 will limit access to the circle; however, the circle will remain open for student move-in during August. Wonderful Wednesdays will be conducted on Cox Hall bridge through this next academic year, and of course, pedestrian traffic will be routed around the impacted area. Phase 2 of the steam line project will be undertaken in early 2019 and completed before commencement. Additional details will be provided as information becomes available.

AMUC Elevator Replacement. The elevator in the Alumni Memorial University Center is being replaced and will be out of service from June 25 through August 6. Loud construction noise will occur periodically during this time, especially on the 1st and 4th floors because most work will be done with the elevator on one of these two levels. If you are concerned about a potential disruption of work or have other questions, please contact the University Center information desk at 404.727.INFO (4636) and the UC team will assist you.

 Construction of storm water vault.

Above, the storm water vault on the south side of the project is more than 30 feet below grade, requiring installation steel plates along the perimeter to properly shore up the work area, allowing crews to safely excavate the area. The stone base course is in place.

Office of Health Promotion (OHP), effective June 1, will be directed by Michael Shutt, senior director for the Community Portfolio, who began his career in health promotion at the University of Georgia. Campus Life will launch an immediate search for an OHP director. The new director and Shutt will collaborate with their teams and other members of the Emory community to continue developing initiatives that help create and sustain a healthy campus environment for all students. Learn more about OHP: http://healthpromotion.emory.edu/index.html

Respect Program will transition to the Office of Student Success Programs and Services, under the leadership of OSSPS senior director Adrienne Slaughter, effective June 1. Together, Respect and OSSPS will continue to build knowledge regarding our collective responsibility to address inequity in the student experience across the entire campus. To further support our students, Campus Life will also hire an additional Respect advocate. Learn more about the Respect Program: http://healthpromotion.emory.edu/respect/index.html
