Applications for the 2018 Homecoming Court are due Sunday, Sept. 30, by 11:59 p.m. The applications are open to undergraduate students graduating this academic year who are on campus this fall.

Students can be nominated by a member of the campus community or can self-nominate. Then, applicants are interviewed and selected by the Homecoming Court Selection Committee. The king and queen are chosen by an online vote and crowned during Orange Central.
After the packed schedule of events during Orange Central, the Homecoming Court then assists with the planning of Senior Celebration.
