New campus roadway needs a name
As work begins to implement Emory’s Campus Master Plan Update 2005, the University will fashion a new roadway out of parts of the current Dickey Drive, Asbury Circle and Fraternity Row, and the University is asking for suggestions to name the roadway.

The road will begin at the new curb-cut to N. Oxford behind the B. Jones Building, stretching north to merge with Fraternity Row near Peavine Parking Deck, curving east by the varsity softball field, and continuing east to merge with Asbury Circle.

Suggested names for the road might refer to figures in University history, to the natural environment or to features of Emory community life. Nominations are due March 27 and may be sent to kimberly.campbell@emory.edu.

Nominations sought for Brittain Award
Nominations are being sought for the 2006 Marion Luther Brittain Award, considered the highest honor given to an Emory student and bestowed at the University’s main Commencement ceremony, to be held May 15.

The Brittain Award is given to a student judged to have performed the most “significant, meritorious and devoted service to Emory” during his or her academic career.

Nominees should be students graduating during the 2005–06 academic year. Nomination forms are available in the Campus Life office.
