USC president Carol Folt announced that the university will require all on-campus students to be vaccinated in the fall. The university's chief health officer urged students to get vaccinated.
President Carol Folt's second State of the University address celebrated various accomplishments and explained challenges in the USC community over the past year.
Los Angeles County expanded vaccine eligibility to anyone 16 or older on April 10, five days earlier than originally anticipated. As vaccine appointment registration for USC students went live on April 12, all spots available for April 15 and 16 were filled within three hours, said Dr. Sarah Van Orman, the Chief Health Officer at the Student Health Center.
The human mind is naturally wired to find negative thoughts, so training the brain to react positively is more important now than ever, said Dr. Kelly Greco, the Behavioral Sciences Assistant Director of Outreach and Prevention Services at Engemann Student Health Center.
The developing educational program will teach high school students about the arts, technology, entrepreneurship, and more.
