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:

    The Buckeye experience is different for every student. But to me, being a Buckeye is enjoying the small things on the big campus. It’s meeting your first friend, your first football game, first day of warm weather after a long winter, late night Buckeye Donuts after studying for exams, or finding an organization that fits your passion. It’s realizing that all of these moments wouldn’t be possible without the other thousands of Buckeyes that surround you every day. And that is what is special to me, being a Buckeye is encouraging others to find their place while also finding yours.
