School of Medicine Greenville


At USC School of Medicine Greenville, our convocation ceremony is a very personal opportunity for faculty, staff, friends, family and the Greenville community to come together and celebrate the many accomplishments of fourth-year students prior to the commencement ceremony.

Class of 2017 USC School of Medicine Greenville Graduation Convocation

Thursday, May 4, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.

McAlister Auditorium
Furman University
3300 Poinsett Highway
Greenville, South Carolina

Students are expected to wear regalia. Faculty are encouraged to attend and if there is sufficient interest may march in a procession/recession. Those wishing to march in the procession and recession should assemble by 7:10 p.m. in a staging area to be identified for robing in regalia. Students and faculty will receive information on sizing of regalia and ordering for rental or purchase in February. Information will also be available for students wishing to order graduation announcement stationery. Faculty who already have regalia are welcome to wear it and do not need USC regalia.

We hope you will join us for 2017 Convocation Ceremony in honor of our inaugural class.


Vehicles arriving on campus will be directed by signs and event staff to the “A” parking lot north of Furman’s chapel. From there, students and guests will walk around the traffic circle to the front of McAlister Auditorium. Vehicles with handicap placards and license plates will be directed into the lot adjacent to Daniel Music Building.

Please refer to the map for the locations of the “A” and handicap parking lots. View/Print Furman Campus Map
