Please advise your guest to be in their seats by no later than 6:30pm.  The lobby of the Spartanburg Memorial Auditorium will be filled with graduates lining up to process down the aisles and we’ll need that area clear.

NEW SEATING LOCATION FOR FACULTY SEATING
Because of the ticket requirement and in order to maximize the number of guest seats available to students, the faculty will be seated on the stage next to the Platform Party.  The faculty will still meet in the arena as usual (lower level) of the Auditorium and process into the Auditorium, but will process up on stage instead of being seated on the floor.  Please click here for Convocation information for faculty.
