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 means being part of a community that is dedicated to both excellence and justice. In a general sense, it means determination to better the world through avenues such as cutting-edge research and social initiatives, but to me it also means the warmth of karaoke with friends on Wednesdays and tingling anticipation when I wake up on Saturday mornings in October. Being a Buckeye means being surrounded by people with a beautifully diverse array of interests and passions united in their commitment to make a difference, and, to me, learning from their stories encapsulates the Ohio State experience.
