KEGS, Friends, and Fabulous Reunions: Goizueta Homecoming 2021 In Pictures

Students, alumni, families, and friends roamed the quad from October 21-23 when Emory’s annual Homecoming celebration took over the campus with athletic events, a 5K race, walking tours, academic discussions, musical celebrations, impromptu gatherings, and reunions, all in a vibrant festival atmosphere. Highlights included performances by headliner Black Pumas, a Grammy-nominated act described as “Wu-Tang Clan meets James Brown” and special guest Lennon Stella who has a stellar synth-pop sound, as well as Yacht Rock Schooner with their smooth 70s and 80s rock vibe. 

Karen Sedatole, Interim John H. Harland Dean for Goizueta Business School delivered a TED-talk presentation focused on the future vision for the school. “While we are heartened by the achievements of Goizueta today, we understand that the future is now and we have to keep pushing forward,” she shared. “With a firm focus on student success, faculty eminence, and research excellence, we are building principled leaders prepared to positively impact business and society.” 

At Goizueta, the Advancement and Alumni Engagement team sponsored a time-honored tradition: MBA Reunion KEGS. Please enjoy these images taken by photographer and marketing student Octavius “O.C.” Chen 22BBA

So, Who Joined in the Fun at KEGS?
