Message From the President
Welcome to the website of the Trojan Knights. Founded in 1921 by Harry Kennedy, Harry Pryor, and Lindley Bothwell, the Trojan Knights serve as the official hosts and guardians of tradition at the University of Southern California. The Trojan Knights have a long and storied history at USC, and have even helped start several of the university’s spirit related traditions. These include the victory bell trophy shared with UCLA, card stunts, the white horse mascot Traveler, George Tirebiter, the school’s original mascot, and many more. We have also been highly active in service as well, as active participants in songfest, organizers of Swim-with-Mike, and several of our own signature philanthropies including the Tirebiter Run, and our annual pumpkin carving with the 32nd Street elementary school.
Here on our site you will find all sorts of information about the Knights. The “History” section of the website can provide you with some more detailed information on the history of the Knights, as well as some of USC’s many traditions. Under the “Who We Are” section you can find a description of our modern day activities, and each of our three organizational pillars: Spirit, Brotherhood, and Philanthropy. On the site you can also learn about the rush process and how to join the Trojan Knights, visit our alumni page if you yourself were a Knight, or get in touch with our executive board.
I hope you enjoy perusing our website. My contact info is listed on the site, so please feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions or want to work with the Trojan Knights.
President of the Trojan Knights
