Illinois State University's University Program Board announced on social media that it will be canceling all remaining spring semester events.

This is due to ISU's response to the coronavirus pandemic.

One of the many events included is the annual Springfest concert. Last year, Aly and AJ headlined the show. UPB had not yet announced who was going to perform at this year's Springfest. 

All events canceled include:

- "The Working Woman" at the Center for Performing Arts scheduled for March 20.

- The Underground Comedy Show at Coffeehouse scheduled for March 21.

- UPB Fair, scheduled for March 25.

- Late Night Snack, scheduled for March 26.

- The annual Springfest concert, scheduled for April 2.

- How to be an Ally, scheduled for April 3.

- Sibling Weekend: SpongeBob Edition, scheduled for April 18.

- Toxic Masculinity, scheduled for April 21.

- UPB Olympics, scheduled for April 30.

- Taste of Normal, scheduled for May 1.
