The Trojans Press On

 

Since 1884, USC’s student body has produced and distributed a number of publications, including newspapers, poetry journals, yearbooks, and more.

USC’s first publication, “The College Review,” was published in February, 1884, and predating many of the University’s other well-known traditions — even football.  The Review featured student-submitted editorials and literary works, and was a cornerstone for the many publications to come.  

One of the earliest and most notable papers to be printed by USC was The University Courier, a weekly periodical that would eventually evolve into The Daily Southern Californian in September of 1912, but was forced to change its name when the paper’s insufficient finances made it impossible to publish five days a week.  

Occurring not long after USC had adopted the “Trojans” monicker, the newspaper was renamed The Southern California Trojan in September, 1915, and didn’t add “Daily” back until it finally reached the five day a week publishing schedule in February, 1925.  At that time, the new Southern California Daily Trojan debuted with, not only campus news as it had typically published, but with added summaries of news from around the world, as well.

As time went on, new sections, such as sports and other various features, appeared, as did the ability to record the world’s history as it unfolded.  The Southern California-based paper would be present for some of its own state’s most memorable events during the 20th century … and beyond!  USC was not far from the action and was able to break major stories — everything from earthquakes, to civil movements, to riots, the Trojan was there.

Today, the Daily Trojan carries on the tradition of its predecessors, and converts its legacy to an added digital format.  Www.DailyTrojan.com is the latest incarnation of the University Courier’s legacy, and will remain a trusted and informative resource for generations to come.  Trojans press on!
