Soka University is open to the public again.

Beginning April 4, visitors from the community could again enjoy Soka’s 103-acre campus perched above Aliso and Wood Canyons Wilderness Park. The one-mile Millennium Trail that circles campus reopened to foot traffic from dawn to dusk. Runners, joggers, and walkers from the community can also take advantage of the track and field facility when not in use by Soka athletic teams.

The Soka Performing Arts Center box office is now open for walk-up service from noon to 4 pm Wednesday through Friday. Face coverings will continue to be required for all patrons, students, faculty, and staff attending all performances.

Due to ongoing efforts to keep the campus community healthy and safe, the Bistro and Ikeda Library will remain closed to all visitors and guests. Only invited guests are allowed to enter residential halls or the grounds surrounding the halls. While in the residential halls, guests must wear face coverings in public spaces.

Neither visitors nor invited guests will be able to enter campus if they have symptoms of COVID-19. Please be aware that if the COVID-19 situation on the SUA campus, in Orange County, or in California changes significantly, protocols may be revised.
