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:

    Being a Buckeye isn’t simply about numbers. The OSU family is so much more than tens of thousands of voices uniting in the Shoe, our half million alumni traversing the globe, or the pride that seeps into every corner and county of our heart-shaped state. Being a Buckeye represents the knowledge that we are greater than the sum of our parts, and can be stronger tomorrow than we were today. It means that “time and change,” rather than distancing us from history or tradition, allows us to better our selves, better our university, and better our world – together.
