While the above method is the best way, there may be another choice, if no one else from emory.edu has already gotten the name into dreamhost namesspace.
If you can add newsenterprise.EMORY.EDU as a fully hosted domain via the panel, then you could in fact lookup the IP address for that entry, by clicking the DNS link under newsenterprise.EMORY.EDU in the panel (after the clock icon goes away). The record listed in “Non-editable DreamHost DNS records for newsenterprise.EMORY.EDU” would be an A record with an IP adddress. Take that IP address and have emory.edu add an A record for newsenterprise.EMORY.EDU using the IP address. Then you would need to move your hosting files here.
The potential issues are: only one dreamhost account can have emory.edu listed on there account. If the panel gives you an error when you try to add the domain that might be the problem.
The other issue is this solution is more fragile, than the one above that uses a cname record. In this case if your IP ever changes the site will break until you figure out that is the problem, obtain the new IP and give it to Emory.edu to update the A record.
