Video: Why alumni give ... five reasons (or so)

“Why give to Emory College?”
For anyone who has asked that question lately--or been asked--we have the top five (or so) reasons from a conversation held last month among a few Emory College alumni, staff and faculty.
For example, “Emory College” is not the same as “Emory University"--the college’s endowment is actually quite small compared to its peers.
Tash Elwyn 93C, Chandra Stephens-Albright 85C, Wendell Reilly 80C, and Matthew Bernstein (chair of the Department of Film Studies) are all volunteers supporting the college in raising $100 million during Campaign Emory for scholarships, faculty support, and enhanced facilities.
They dropped by the fourth floor of Candler Library and joined Bobby Paul, dean of Emory College, Kim Loudermilk 97PhD, senior associate dean of Emory College, Josh Newton, senior associate vice president for development, and David Raney 99PhD, editor of the Quadrangle magazine, to share their ideas--and enthusiasm--for supporting the college during these lean economic times.
