Some Mascot!

For those of you who are not familiar with Emory, we have a rather unusual mascot. Our mascot is a skeleton named Dooley! Personally, I love that our school mascot is a skeleton! He represents the spirit of Emory. Each year, no one knows who Dooley is except for his pallbearers, who accompany him everywhere. In the homecoming parade we spotted the pallbearers.

And an appearance by Dooley himself!!

If you are interested, you can read more about Dooley HERE. The Emory website has a little video about how he came to be, which is pretty interesting!

Of course I have to give a shout out to Emory for it's commitment of respect to everyone. This is one of the reasons that I LOVE this university!!! This is the Emory Pride float in the parade.

Emory is alternatively known as "Coca-cola University" because we have had so much funding and support from Coke (which originated in Atlanta if you didn't know). MANY of the homecoming floats had Coke themes as a tribute to one of our main benefactors!!! Emory also heavily supports sustainability and recycling - YAY!!!!

I just sent 5 of our staff members to a conference in Atlanta. One of them brought me a gift back... a big coffee cup that says Coca Cola on it. I gave up Cokes about 22 years ago. I miss them so bad.
