Chinese food ... in Mumbai

Throughout August, the EAA has hosted a series of Let's Go Emory! parties. The parties give the Emory community an opportunity to send incoming students off to Georgia in style.

More than a dozen Let's Go! parties took place across the U.S., but that was far from their limits. On Friday, August 14, 16 alumni, parents, current students, and almost-students got together on the other side of the world, Mumbai, India, to toast the University.

Karan Kothari 10B organized the celebration, which took place at the China Garden restaurant (a fun place at least according to the photos, see above). He emailed us an update, and it sure sounded like everyone had a great time.

"It was an excellent opportunity for parents, who are sending their children thousands of miles away from home, to understand what it means to live and study at Emory," Kothari wrote. "It helps ease their anxiety."

"Everyone had a lot of questions," Kothari continued. "They were surprised to know we have an alumni chapter here in Mumbai and that we had arranged something for them. This event was a great idea for the incoming students, it really helps them get started at Emory."
