Faculty, students and staff at the University of South Carolina are gathering to pay tribute to the college's former president Andrew Sorensen, who died earlier this month in Ohio at age 72.
The university will hold a memorial service Tuesday morning at the Koger Center for the Arts in Columbia. Sorensen was USC's 27th president and served from 2002 through 2008. He was a professor with the USC School of Medicine until the fall of last year, when he became the chief fundraiser for Ohio State University.
Current university president Harris Pastides (Pas-TEE-deez) will participate in the memorial service as well former Columbia mayor Bob Coble and USC board member Herbert Adams.
Members of Sorensen's family are expected to attend.
