Some families have unique traditions that may not be consistent with, what we would call an average Thanksgiving. So, if you’re looking to change-up your routine, check out some of the ideas the “Where U Live” team put together.

Emory History Minute: Candler Mansion

To celebrate Emory's 175th anniversary, Emory Report brings you a look at little-known facts about the university. 

The Candler Mansion on Emory's Briarcliff campus is a beautiful yet eerie estate. Built in 1920 by Asa "Buddy" Candler, Jr., the second son of the founder of Coca-Cola, the 42 acre property once housed wild animals including four elephants: Coca, Cola, Refreshing and Delicious. In the 1960s, the mansion was turned into a mental health institute.
