Obama's appearance will be hosted by the USC Political Student Assembly, which encompasses 25 politically oriented student groups.

According to the release: Obama is expected to make public remarks at McCarthy Quad, near USC's historic Doheny Library, a site that has previously seen speeches delivered by sitting President Gerald R. Ford and by aspiring presidential candidates John F. Kennedy and Richard M. Nixon.

Obama also previously spoke at USC, in October 2006, while serving as a U.S. senator.
