Smith Center. Doors to the Smith Center will open at 3 p.m.
Everyone is encouraged to wear Carolina blue.

The general public is encouraged to use special park and ride shuttles from the Friday Center parking lot and park and ride lot off NC 54, across from Meadowmont. Carolina Livery shuttles will begin running at 2 p.m. and will continue until service attendees depart the Smith Center (approximately 6 p.m.)
