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:

    Buckeyes can be found all over the world and carry their school spirit wherever they go. To be a Buckeye is to be a part of this worldwide community, always striving to bring people together and to help all. To me, this means being a mentor for others, helping to guide them as they make their own journey. It means being active in giving back to my community and doing what I can to make peoples’ days a little better. Buckeyes make a difference and it is my hope that as a member of this community, I will too.
