Office of Student Life : Creating the Extraordinary Student Experience



Homecoming Court

Court members are chosen based on their leadership qualities, spirit, integrity, and achievement through their contributions and involvement at Ohio State. The Court selection process begins with a paper application. Based on application scores and GPA, individual interviews are offered and conducted by OSU faculty, staff, and alumni. The scores from the paper application and interview are combined to determine the 2018 Homecoming Court members.  Court members then volunteer and serve as ambassadors during Welcome Week and Homecoming Week, and after a student body vote, the Homecoming Queen and King are announced at the Homecoming Game on October 6, 2018.

2018 Homecoming Court Applications are due March 1st.

  • What does it mean to be a Buckeye:

    To me, being a buckeye means being a leader and giving back to the community. With over 1400 student orgs and events like MLK Day of Service and Community Commitment, there’s so many ways to make a change on campus. Being a buckeye has allowed me to be a Student Leadership Advocate, executive board member of the Business of Retail Association, and a volunteer for MLK Day of Service. These experiences have not only helped me strengthen my time management and public speaking skills, but they’ve allowed me to positively impact the lives of others as well.
