Eagle Row name reflects changes, improvements

Fraternity Row has a new name and a new look. Now called Eagle Row—the street signs changed this summer—the new name reflects the arrival of the 92,000 square-foot Sorority Village and other initiatives of the University’s campus master plan.

Vice President and Secretary of the University Rosemary Magee said the name “Eagle Row” was selected after a campuswide canvass last spring that garnered hundreds of suggestions, with “eagle” as the common denominator.

Eagle Row will eventually be the hub of all freshman housing, with the first phase now under construction. Road realignments are also under way. According to Jen Fabrick, university architect, the loss of some parking spaces marks the beginning of bike lanes, with plans calling for sidewalks and other enhancements.

Candler hosts Faith, Politics and Policy conference
Registrations are now being accepted for the conference, “Faith, Politics and Policy.” From Oct. 8–10, Candler School of Theology will address this topic with a group of nationally known church and political leaders.

Speakers include Andrew Young, pastor and politician; Cynthia Tucker, syndicated columnist and editor of the opinion section of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution; Jim Wallis, Sojourners; James Forbes, Riverside Church; Jim Towey, former White House director of Faith-based and Community Initiatives, as well as others.
Candler faculty and state legislators will guide conference participants through a critical and strategic look at the church’s role in shaping public policy and international relations.

A registration brochure for the conference is available at www.candler.emory.edu/EVENTS/fallconference06/.
