USC announces cancellation of main stage commencement ceremony

USC has canceled its main May commencement ceremony after controversy surrounding valedictorian Asna Tabassum, who was opposed by pro-Israel groups. The university aimed to quell the turmoil by eliminating the ceremony that was expected to draw 65,000 attendees. The decision led to various new activities and celebrations for the graduates. USC faced protests and called off speeches by prominent figures like director Jon M. Chu. Multiple other commencement events at USC will continue as scheduled. The cancelation stemmed from unspecified security threats, leading to increased tensions on campus and across the country amid the Israel-Hamas conflict.
