Parents of current USC students are invited to attend a reception and the installation ceremony. Please register your attendance at www.usc.edu/esvp (Code: Parent).
A reception for parents will be held from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. in Argue Plaza, next to the Alumni House. The invitation sent to all parents includes instructions on confirming your attendance.
At 9:30 a.m., parents will be escorted to reserved seating in Alumni Park. The processional begins at 10:00 a.m., followed immediately by the ceremony.
The installation ceremony will begin immediately following the processional. It is at this ceremony that C. L. Max Nikias will be formally installed as the eleventh president of the university. The ceremony will end shortly before noon, at which time all delegates will march back to their original assembly points in reverse order. All guests will remain in their seats until the recessional is complete.
At noon, following the recessional, all guests are invited to attend a celebratory luncheon held in McCarthy Quad. There are no reservations necessary for this lunch - all are welcome.
