Homecoming Court Nominations Now Open

Want to nominate a friend, professor or peer to become fall royalty? Now you can, as Homecoming Court nominations are live.

The nomination form is straightforward enough — simply fill out your nominee’s name, email, university affiliation, and justification. Members of the Court — Royalty, for the uninitiated — are responsible “for coordinating the selection of the Homecoming Student, University, and First Year Courts,” according to the event’s website.

The Court further interviews semifinalists and a panel of students for the University Court selection, advertises the voting of the King and Queen, and plans the Court Reception while strengthening freshmen involvement within the First Year Committee.

This year’s event, scheduled for Sept. 20-27, carries the motto “Honor the Purpose, Carry the Pride.” Good Morning America co-anchor and former All-American diver Lara Spencer is the Grand Marshal, while Lunar Lion Director Michael Paul has been named as the Honorary Grand Marshal.

Homecoming weekend is the culmination of the year’s homecoming events and the conclusion of Homecoming week. It begins Friday the 26th with the annual homecoming parade and continues through Saturday’s football game against Northwestern during which the Homecoming King and Queen will be named.
