construction: AMUC: Emory student center


Emory Dining. The minimum dollar amount required for students to deposit funds to their Dooley Dollars meal accounts has been reduced. Students now can add funds in increments of $25 rather than the previous minimum of $75. The change follows meetings between Chad Sunstein, director of Dining, and concerned students who explained that the previous minimum imposed a financial burden on many students.

Rapt by Others Book Club. Participants (see photo below) in the December session of this Emory Campus Life book club read James McBride’s The Color of Water: A Black Man’s Tribute to his White Mother. January’s book is Janet Mock’s Redefining Realness: My Path to Womanhood, Identify, Love and So Much More. The monthly sessions, which have a limit of 15 participants and run July through April, are already fully “booked.” Participants, who signed up beginning in June for each session, meet once to discuss their book, 4 to 5:30 p.m., at Barnes & Noble on campus. Ed Lee of the Barkley Forum leads the discussions. To sign up for one or more sessions, look for email invitations sent annually to all regular Campus Life staff.
