Such is the rallying cry of Dooley, skeletal mascot of Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. This spectral force acts through publicly unidentified students wearing a signature costume consisting of a skeleton with a black cape, a black top hat, and white gloves. He makes his presence known throughout the year in the form unpredictable appearances at campus events, and has the power to dismiss classes with a wave of his hand!
"Presidents may come, presidents may go; professors may come, professors may go; students may come, students may go; but Dooley goes on forever!" Emory University
In 2022, springtime at Emory brought Dooley’s Week, a longstanding tradition with students enjoying a week full of activities that culminated with a concert dubbed Dooleypalooza.
