May 9, 2024 - 6:00 to 11:00 pm  

The beloved Senior Class tradition continues in its 22nd year! Put on your fancy clothes to gather and celebrate one last time as the undergraduate Class of 2024 after finals and before families arrive for graduation events. An evening of fun, music, food, and the traditional candlelight procession as you cross over from student to an alumnus of Emory University.

Doors open at 5:30.



DCT + DJ = Amping up the evening

Start the night by getting your Class Day Crossover wristband (needed for drinks later) and a chance to win some alumni swag. Fuel up with food, music, laughter, and maybe a little meal plan reminiscing



ESC Multipurpose Room

The Class Day Program is a fun and casual kickoff to Commencement Weekend presentation for and by the Senior Class. Enjoy senior awards, final Coke Toast and be inspired by the student-selected Class Day speaker



ESC Plaza and Asbury Circle

When the sun goes down it's time to take part in a treasured tradition. As you leave the Class Day program you will receive your candle. Walk as a class (BYOT: bring your own tissues) as alumni, faculty, trustees, and staff line the path to cheer you on. This is the symbolic crossover moment to Emory Alumni status, a title you will carry for the rest of your life and an experience you won't forget. 


McDonough Field Party

End the night at McDonough! The alumni who cheered you on will join you as the DJ music and glow party ignites.  Enjoy deserts and beverages (alcohol for 21+) while you create photo memories in several Emory-themed photo/video booths including three brand new designs. This is your moment, Class of 2024.



Memories sent directly to your phone

During the events, photographers armed with SpotMyPhotos technology will be capturing photos and videos. Just enter your cell phone number once with one of the official photographers, and every photo that you appear in that evening will automatically be sent to your phone to share and save for free. This cool tech was created by 2002 B-school grad Ryan Jacobs  (he missed the first Class Day by one year!) so you don't miss a single memory. In 2023 more than 10,000 photos were created and sent to the graduates.
