The Trojan Knights, who have been at USC for 101 years, have admitted women this semester for the first time in history.
Out of a class of 25, five of the new members are women. Traditionally, women join the Helenes, which is a partner organization of the Knights.
The Knights has had non-male and non-binary members, but women hadn’t previously been accepted to its ranks.
One of the Knights’ biggest jobs is to guard Tommy Trojan the week of the USC-UCLA game.
