Soka University of America regretfully has canceled the 19th Annual International Festival on May 2, and the Commencement ceremony for the Class of 2020 on May 22.

The SUA administration has made the difficult decision to cancel the International Festival and the Commencement Ceremony in May. Global concern over the coronavirus (COVID-19) made canceling these events the most logical choice. Students have returned home for the remainder of the semester and continue their courses online because the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and community members is our primary concern.

We look forward to hosting these events in May 2021 as we celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Soka University of America in Aliso Viejo.
