Come join the fun as we celebrate Staff Fest on May 16, 2014!

This year's theme is Emory Olympics! Slip on your shorts and sneakers and get ready for a day of activity and fun competition!

Congratulations to Emory employee, Enid Sullivan from the Office of Research Administration for coming up with the winning theme by entering our contest! Enid wins a free Staff Fest t-shirt and a $25 gift card to Emory's Barnes and Noble bookstore.

The main event will take place from 12:00 noon* – 3:00 pm on the Quad, with games, music, dancing, and refreshments. (*Note: this is a time change from previous years).

Back by popular demand, we will have food tastings from some of America To Go's catering vendors! Please note that while we will have refreshments and food tastings, Staff Fest will not provide a full lunch for employees.

RAIN LOCATION: If rain, the celebration will move to the DUC, Lower Level Terrace (refreshments only).

REMINDER: Staff Fest is for current staff and retirees only. Family members will not be admitted.
