Holiday celebrations take place at USC, UCLA, and across L.A.

Crosstown rivals USC and UCLA ring in the holidays with similarly themed celebrations

USC hosts Snowfest, an event hosted by USC Student Affairs to kick off the holiday season featuring an ice skating rink, hot chocolate, an inflated snow globe, and more. We talk to students about what they look forward to in the holidays and we tell you about holiday activities in LA in the weeks to come.

It’s expected that 49 million Americans will travel this year during the holiday period. Health Experts warn that the early flu season, Covid, and RSV could cause a “tripldemic”. We talked to an infectious disease expert about how students can stay safe while traveling.

The USC Thornton School of Dance will host a Choral Winter Gala on December 10th. We talked to students in the choir about what it means to them to perform.
