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 having pride in your alma mater and upholding Buckeye tradition. That of course means cheering loud and proud on Saturdays and singing Carmen with your best friends rain or shine. But being a Buckeye means more than that because our school is so much bigger than football. Buckeyes take pride in their school by being the best and brightest students while at Ohio State and innovators and leaders once they graduate. They uphold Buckeye tradition by giving back to communities in need and by giving a helping hand whenever they can. Buckeyes are aspirational. Go Bucks!
