New additions to Emory!

Come beginning of fall or spring semester, the long, winding lines and rush to buy books will no longer be at the Dobbs University Center (DUC). That’s right students and parents, it’s about time to turn around and hop on over to the Oxford Circle Building. Today is the official opening day of this massive, three-story bookstore—we will no longer have to peek inside tinted windows to try and get a glimpse of what’s inside! Welcome, Barnes and Noble at Emory University!
Two days prior to the grand opening, I had the opportunity to wander around the Oxford Building with a few of my colleagues from the Emory Alumni Association (EAA). As we entered the building, the smell of paint and books showed me how brand new this building really is. I was in awe of how large the building is (the bookstore is THREE stories … does not compare to our teeny bookstore at Samford) and I also loved the funky, modern architecture. The Oxford Circle Building is also home to the largest Starbucks on a college campus in the United States. Cassie Young 07C even said “This is a SICK Starbucks!” Sick meaning totally cool, of course.

It was one of the biggest Starbucks Coffee shops I’ve ever seen, and I could already imagine groups of students collaborating and cramming for exams.

Happy studying and coffee-drinking!
