Emory buys American Cancer Society property
The University and the American Cancer Society have completed negotiations for the purchase of the society’s national headquarters building on Clifton Road.

The society is relocating its offices to a larger space in downtown Atlanta. Under the terms of the purchase agreement, the society will have the right to occupy the building until June 2007.

The four-acre Clifton Road property is located directly adjacent to the Emory Inn and in front of the Emory Conference Center. Preliminary plans for the space call for housing several administrative units as well as academic and research administrative services all geared to enable more efficient implementation of the University’s 10-year strategic plan.

Cox Hall Food Court reopens this week

Emory Campus Services has worked diligently this summer to enhance the service and décor of the Cox Hall Food Court, which will be reopened later this week with a host of new food venues including Salsa Rico, Pizza Hut, Seattle’s Best Coffee and Zia’s Juice.

Existing food venues, Emory Market and Boars Head Deli, have been expanded with additional menu offerings.

In the interim, Sodexho will set up a tent in front of the DUC to serve grill items beginning at 10:30 a.m. through late afternoon, Monday–Wednesday.
