Medieval Society knighthoods are given annually at Medieval Forum, beginning in 2005. The candidates are selected by the elected leaders of the Society. They honor students of MedSoc who help with Forum as well as some people who have been lost, friends of the Forum.

The knighthood is given for service, scholarship, and loyalty. There is a plaque recording the recipients in the HUB, and each student receives a medal naming them to one of two orders. "OTT" is the Order of Todd Trevorrow and "OBL" is the order of Brian Levy. It follows the tradition of the OBE, Order of the British Empire, and the Order of the Garter. Todd Trevorrow was helpful, kind, willing to pitch right in and do things, well respected and well read. Brian Levy was charming, popular, well-spoken, brilliant, widely loved, a scholar and a teacher. Both were key supporters of Forum.
