LOS ANGELES (AP) — The University of Southern California expects to reopen campuses this fall, joining the state's major public universities in planning to resume on-campus life curtailed by COVID-19.

USC President Carol Folt issued an online letter Friday that said she is "cautiously optimistic" because virus cases are down and vaccinations are ramping up.

USC and other universities nationwide were forced to switch to online learning last March.

Both the University of California and California State University systems also have said they plan to reopen their campuses this fall if conditions permit.
