50th Reunion and Commencement

Plan Your Reunion

2018 Corpus Cordis Aureum

Mark your calendar for the 2018 Emory University Graduation and Corpus Cordis Aureum Weekend - May 12-14, 2018. School of Nursing alumni are active participants in this most special of traditions.

Corpus Cordis Aureum, which is Latin for the golden corps of the heart, celebrates all Emory alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago.

Two of Emory Commencement Weekend's signature events are designed especially for alumni celebrating their 50-year class reunions as well as alumni from earlier classes. On Commencement Sunday, Corpus Cordis Aureum (CCA) inducts new members at a ceremony at the Miller-Ward Alumni House. Each new inductee will receive a specially commissioned medallion to keep and wear at all future Corpus Cordis Aureum activities. Previously inducted members are invited back to be recognized.

On Commencement Monday, all members of Corpus Cordis Aureum, including previous inductees, are invited to march during the University's Commencement procession. Clad in gold robes donned during a breakfast reception in Candler Library, Corpus Cordis Aureum members enter the quadrangle with the graduating class and sit at the front in the VIP section. During the ceremony, Corpus Cordis Aureum is invited to stand and be recognized, symbolizing all Emory alumni.
