Update, May 14: Here's updated information of the commencement proceedings from MUSC.

First reporting:

Charleston's native son, Stephen Colbert, is slated to give the Medical University of South Carolina's commencement speech for the May 15th graduation ceremony.

So, if you're not affiliated with MUSC, why should you care? Well, first off we can always hope for Colbert spottings in town, and while the ceremony is for graduates it's held at the Horseshoe and you'll probably be able to watch from the sidelines -- if you're really excited at the chance to see Colbert.

No time has yet been settled on, but we'll update once they decide.

Here's a map to the Horseshoe.
