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.

    Being a Buckeye means always striving to be the best you can be, whether you're in the classroom, out in your community, or on the field. It means being part of a family of millions around the world who bleed Scarlet and Grey and always being willing to go above and beyond for that family.
