Homecoming has come and gone, with thousands of classmates and families reuniting on campus amid laughter and fond Emory memories.

Carrying on the proud tradition of service to each other and to our communities, Emory Cares International Service Day further united alumni in service efforts around the globe, with projects in more than fifty cities and several countries. Now, with insight from alumni like you, the Emory Alumni Association (eaa) seeks to contribute to the growth of our evolving institution. 

In January, you will be invited to share your thoughts in the next phase of our Alumni Attitude Survey. Your responses will enable us to evaluate future programming and provide resources to best suit your lifelong needs. If you haven’t already done so, please take a moment and register to join the Emory alumni online community. Through this robust forum you’ll be able to connect with classmates, seek new career connections, register to attend chapter activities, post class notes and classified ads, and participate in interactive alumni online groups. 

As Emory University embarks on a new strategic phase, we encourage you to consider—and live—the words that have become our alumni motto. Say to yourself, “I’m IN. I’m inspired, involved, and invested in Emory.” Then join us as we take an incredible journey into new opportunities.
