On May 15, the university will host a full-day virtual celebration of the Class of 2020 and their extraordinary accomplishments.

This joyful celebration will begin with President Folt and Provost Zukoski hosting a special live virtual broadcast to confer degrees and acknowledge the exceptional achievements of this class throughout their academic journey and especially over the last several weeks. This class has shown remarkable grit, perseverance and determination and truly exemplifies what it means to Fight On!

In addition to the virtual conferring of degrees, the day will encompass virtual academic school celebrations and the USC website will  transform into an interactive hub featuring voices from our entire community – family, deans, faculty, staff, alumni and students — honoring the graduates through videos, photos, social streams and uploaded messages.

Also, in the week leading up to the virtual celebration, USC News will feature many stories about the Class of 2020, chronicling their journey and welcoming them as alumni.

USC remains committed to having a, traditional in-person ceremony for the Class of 2020 on campus at a later date and the plans are well underway.  That ceremony will take place when travel and large group events once again become safe. We encourage you to visit this site again for updated information.
