Wednesdays are wonderful at Emory College, thanks to Wonderful Wednesdays. For many years, Emory College held no classes on Wednesdays; that’s no longer true, but the day remains special. These days, Wonderful Wednesdays encourage school spirit by attracting the entire Emory community to gather at Asbury Circle on Wednesday afternoons.
Each week a different campus organization sponsors the event and may assign a theme. Wonderful Wednesdays of the past have featured a petting zoo, a bouncy castle (c'mon, they’re not just for kids!) and an ice-cream tasting. Some include live music or dance performances. Occasionally they’re more practical. For instance, a recent event showcased volunteer opportunities. But they’re always wonderful. And they’re always on Wednesday!
