Swimmers, divers win 11th title
The Emory men’s and women’s swimming and diving teams continued their streak of success at the University Athletic Association Championships, winning their 11th-consecutive conference team championships on Feb. 14 in Chicago.

Emory swimmers amassed a total of 14 individual and relay championships and 39 all-UAA honors during the meet. In the process, Emory’s athletes set seven UAA records and 10 pool records.

University-wide Rockfest is on
The Student Programming Council’s Emory Belmont Rockfest on Saturday, Feb. 28 is Emory’s first University-wide music festival. Seven bands will perform across two stages on McDonough Field, beginning at 2:30 p.m. Two are Emory bands and four bands hail from Belmont University in Nashville, Tenn. Headlining the event is singer/songwriter Matt Nathanson.

“This great event will give faculty and staff alike, along with their families, to come and interact with students outside of the classroom – which is such an important part of the collegiate experience,” says Matt Garrett, assistant director of the Office of Student Leadership & Service.
