At Emory University, two separate facilities are operated by two different departments: the indoor aquatic facility, a part of the $20 million dollar George W. Woodruff Physical Education Center, and the outdoor facility at the Student Activity and Academic Center. The Physical Education (PE) building at Kennesaw State University, currently under renovation, houses the six-lane, twenty-five-yard indoor pool and is operated by the Intramural and Recreation Services office.

Friday, 9/30, 10:15 a.m.-12:15 p.m.: An interactive mock trial will be presented by Gary Pogharian (University of South Carolina). The trial will involve role playing with parts for participants on the jury and as witnesses. Attendees will have to guess what the verdict will be and why.
