Reminder: Fall Recess – October 14-15

Message to USC Faculty

Dear Colleagues,

This year’s Fall Recess will be Thursday and Friday, October 14 and 15. The Fall Recess was instituted in 2019 as part of a series of actions toward supporting student wellness. We welcome the opportunity to give our students the chance to recharge with two days of no classes and no classwork expected.

We encourage our students to take advantage of the brief recess to rest, go for a hike, or do anything they like that is safe, healthy, and restorative.

As with Spring Recess, the university will remain open during Fall Recess. Thank you for all you are doing to make this a successful and productive semester.

Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs
