This CAP event will take place on Wednesday, September 28th at 3:00 PM in Taylor Chapel. Our presenter, Dr. Bob Wentworth, is an expert in toxicology and environmental contamination at the University of Georgia's Institute for Health Management and Mass Destruction Defense. He will deal scientifically and scripturally with the unusual subject of zombies.
The Cultural Awareness Program (CAP) of Emmanuel College is a series of cultural events open to students and the public. Their purpose is to help those who attend learn the value of discovering insights from listening to and reflecting upon a diversity of cultural expressions. CAP intends to stretch minds, enlarge personal preferences and promote better understanding of the broader diversity of esthetic experiences and beliefs. We believe so strongly in this that we require our students to attend at least three CAP events per each year of full time enrollment.

The local Highland Walk Golf Course at Victoria Bryant State Park has been reserved for this event. This beautiful State course offers both a scenic and challenging layout.
Last year was a successful year for sponsorships at the Alumni & Friends Homecoming Golf Tournament.

The National Alumni Board & the College want to “thank you” for your generous sponsorship donations.
This event has always been a highlight of Homecoming Weekend and provides great fellowship and camaraderie. Both individual and team prizes will be awarded.
