We hope you and your loved ones had a peaceful holiday and are staying safe and well. As COVID-19 continues to surge in Southern California, we want to update you on Spring Semester 2021.

Late yesterday, we became aware of a number of students who have not heeded our guidance related to COVID-19 precautions and congregated socially off campus earlier this month.
