'Rock the Results' Party Set for Election Night

An outdoor "Rock the Results" party is set for election night in the heart of Emory's campus on McDonough Field off Asbury Circle. The event, intended for the Emory community and guests, begins at 6 p.m. and is set to last until we have a president. Results will be tracked live and projected on to a large movie-style screen.

Sponsored by Emory's Student Government Association and College Council, organizers expect several hundred students and members of the Emory community for the event, which will include — in addition to election results — games, live music and food. In case of inclement weather, the event will be held on the 4th floor of the Woodruff P.E. Center, 600 Asbury Circle, adjacent to McDonough field.

Results Watching at the Center for Ethics

A results watching party also will be held beginning at 9 p.m. in Emory's Center for Ethics, located at 1531 Dickey Drive, Emory. For more information, contact Paul Ficklin-Alred at 404-727-1208.

In addition to the Rock the Results party, SGA and College Council are sponsoring free shuttles to run continuously from 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. from Emory to Druid Hills High School, the polling place for students and others registered on or near Emory's campus. The shuttle stop is located on Means Drive directly behind the Dobbs University Center.
