Furman to host six high school graduations this week

By Shannice Singletary ’14, Contributing Writer

It is shaping up to be a busy week at Furman, as Timmons Arena is to house a score of high school graduations this Wednesday and Thursday.  More than 3,000 community members are expected to be on campus for each graduation.

University police are advising faculty, staff and students to avoid using the Timmons Gate during these ceremonies.

On Wednesday, Commencement ceremonies will be held for Travelers Rest High School (9 a.m.), Blue Ridge (2 p.m.) and Woodmont (7 p.m.). Thursday’s schedule includes Wade Hampton ( 9 a.m.),  Berea (2 p.m.) and J.L. Mann (7 p.m.).

Doors will open an hour before each ceremony. The university community should wait until traffic is settled and parked before navigating around the Timmons area. In the event that the parking cannot be accommodated within the Timmons arena parking, it will be diverted to the Chapel lot.
