Emory’s Virtual Community Hub

Dear Emory community,

Living through a global pandemic has driven home a truth that we’ve known all along: Emory is much more than a physical place. Whether you are on campus or a world away, we know that you carry with you the connections, the spirit and the values that, woven together, constitute the fibers of our cherished Emory bond. 

As we continue to adjust to the realities of remote learning, teaching and working, we want to make it easier for you to feel your connection to the Emory community. While we miss the ease of running into friends on the quad or attending our favorite club and athletic events, know that we are working on new ways to sustain a sense of community and stay connected.

Student organizations, clubs and departments have created a growing selection of online meet-ups and virtual events that we hope you’ll explore and experience. Whether you’re used to meeting at the library for a study group, making new friends at the Emory Student Center or taking a break at the Michael C. Carlos Museum, please know that many Emory events and activities are available to you in new, online platforms.

To make it easier to find the types of events and activities now available online—both familiar and exciting new opportunities—we have created the Emory Virtual Community Hub. This informational hub is designed for students to connect with friends and engage in Emory activities no matter where they may be. 

Here, you’ll find a place to connect, whether it’s joining the Buddhist Club for weekly meditation sessions or attending a virtual symposium or webinar. Explore how others are processing this unprecedented experience by visiting the Student Artist Virtual Gallery. There is even a place to record your own thoughts by writing a “Note to Self”—a reflection that will be kept in a “digital time capsule” and emailed back to you a year from now.

To learn more, or to submit information about online events that you are organizing, we invite you to visit As we respond to the limitations of COVID-19 with new ideas and innovations, we invite you to join the conversation with your own creative suggestions. 

Together, let us face our shared challenges with community and connection.
