What’s canceled, what’s not, and what will happen at a later date.

No need to add additional stress to your life in an already tumultuous time - here’s a list of what’s canceled, what’s not, and what might get moved to a later date.

All USC affiliated events, including sports practices, competitions, recitals and performances have been canceled. A few non-university related events at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and USC Hotel will still take place.
