College celebration centers on Campaign Emory

More than 600 friends and supporters of Emory College of Arts and Sciences attended a weekend of special events on campus Feb. 20-22 to honor the school’s past, showcase its present, and support its future.

The weekend’s events included performances by The Mac Isseks Quartet, Emory pianist William Ransom with members of the Vega String Quartet, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and the Emory University Concert Choir. More than a thousand attended a sold-out lecture by Emory Distinguished Writer in Residence Salman Rushdie.

The events centered on the College’s efforts to raise $110 million through Campaign Emory. Thus far the College has raised nearly $51 million of its goal.
