Student Programming Council (SPC)

The mission of the Student Programming Council (SPC) is to enrich the Emory community by providing a variety of quality entertainment for the entire university, making the Emory experience both enjoyable and memorable. SPC accomplishes this by planning and executing several events throughout the academic year, including traditions like Homecoming and Dooley’s Week. Our events are open to all undergraduate Emory students. All SPC events are entirely organized by students.

Traditions put on by SPC:

Homecoming Week (including Fall Band Concert & HoCo Fest)

At Emory, Homecoming is for all of us! It's a time for students, faculty, staff, parents and alums to celebrate our community, make new connections, and reflect on ways in which Emory becomes home. Homecoming and Family Weekend take place concurrently each fall, featuring events, performances, and plenty of food and fun.

Dooley's Week

Dooley's Week is a week-long celebration in the spring semester featuring social events, a concert, giveaways, and delicious food.

If you're lucky, Dooley will visit your classroom. Once there, and in exchange for a well-written limerick, Dooley may just cancel your class for the day. You will also hear Dooley's famous words during his appearances:

"Presidents may come, presidents may go; professors may come, professors may go; students may come, students may go; but Dooley lives on forever!"

First Day Fest

Celebrate the first day of classes at a carnival on the Quad! Sponsored by SPC and Wonderful Wednesday.

Celebrations throughout the school year

From a haunted student center to a Valentine's Day live dating show, SPC puts on fun and unique events all semester! Some campus favorites include Fall festivals, art markets, stargazing nights, and even axe throwing! Come join us for all sorts of fun activities, free to all students.
