Fireworks at the L.A. Coliseum goes off while the Trojan Marching band plays on the field

President Folt has created a major kick-off to three days and nights of commencement events to honor you and those who’ve helped you along the way:

Trojan Family Graduate Celebration

Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum
Thursday, May 9th at 8:30 p.m.

Please join us with your family and loved ones next Thursday to celebrate your accomplishments in a big way – and come together as a Trojan Family. Count on drone shows, fireworks, surprise performances, the Trojan Marching Band, and a special gift just for the Class of 2024. (Hint: something similar recently sold out at the bookstore!)

We know many of you have had questions about why USC couldn’t use the Coliseum for our main stage ceremony. It was the first place we looked – unfortunately, it was fully booked. We also looked at many alternative arenas around Los Angeles – which on such short notice had similar issues.

We have been able to host this event – and a couple smaller events – because several groups adjusted their plans at the Coliseum to accommodate limited access for this special event.

We’re also only able to use a portion of the Coliseum, so each graduate will receive up to six tickets. Tickets are limited to graduates and their families and loved ones. Concession stands will be open throughout the evening to purchase food and drinks.

Look for an email with ticketing information and more details, coming soon.

See you at the Coliseum – Fight On!
