emory memory

Think you know your alma mater?

Did you know other contenders for Emory's name were Methodist bishops Francis Asbury and Thomas Coke? We really could have been Coke University.

In 1923 Emory introduced a new form of athletic competition: pushball. The entire membership of the first-year and sophomore classes competed at the same time to push a giant, 180-pound inflated ball past opposing goal lines.

Remember pushball, Dooley’s Week, Lullwater Day, The Depot, and other items from the Emory Memory book?
