During the third week of March, the graduating class meets at 11:00 a.m., historically at the Farmhouse Gallery, for the official "Match Ceremony." You should plan to arrive around 10:45 for seating. A lite lunch is provided by the ETSU Alumni Society.
Match envelopes are distributed (random order) to the senior class, and once all have been handed out, the group opens their NRMP Match Letter.
Those students who participated in "Early Match Programs" (SFMatch, Urology or Military) received their results in December and January.
Arrangements: Class Officers work with the University Alumni Office (439-4218).
Directions: Follow State of Franklin to University Parkway, Turn right on University Parkway, follow to South Roan Street, turn right. Follow South Roan for approximately 5.1 miles until the "Farmhouse Gallery" sign, turn left (you'll see a small covered bridge.)
Parking: Dirt / grass field with some
gravel (can be muddy if it has rained recently)
Who Attends: You, your spouse and children (seating is limited).
Appropriate Attire: This location is a quaint space heated with a wood burning stove so dress in layers if it is cool weather. Regional media are typically present for this event to interview you and your family.
