COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – The University of South Carolina is celebrating the opening of the new building housing the School of Journalism and Mass Communications with a short concert by Darius Rucker and his former Hootie and the Blowfish bandmate Mark Bryan.
The dedication for the new building will take place at 5 p.m. Wednesday on its new location on Sumter Street near the heart of campus.
After remarks by university president Harris Pastides and journalism dean Charles Bierbauer, the concert will begin across the street at the university’s Horseshoe.
Students, faculty and staff from the College of Information and Communications will have their own reserved area, and the 30-minute show is open to the public.
The journalism school will hold an invitation-only reception after the concert at the new building.
