  1. Good Afternoon,

    Los County had just extended the opening of businesses included gyms start Friday, June 12th. When can we expect the USC fitness center to finally be accessible to students still in the area?

  2. i was hoping to show my son your campus, just to walk around outside. is that possible? i noticed one entrance is open, can visitors enter?

    • Hello Susan. The campus is open for visitors. The university requests that visitors wear masks. There may be additional requirements in coming weeks.

  3. Dear USC,

    I would like to take graduation pictures around sunset with my family. At what time will USC IDs be required for campus access in the evenings?

    Thank you,
