Homecoming Announces Student, University, And Alumni Courts

Homecoming announced the Student, University, and Alumni Courts Thursday with its annual “Court Crash,”, surprising members on the courts in their classrooms, at the bars, or even at swim practice throughout the day.

Each year, the Student Court is made up of five men and five women who “represent the Penn State ideals and traditions,” Royalty Director Sam Etzi explained. This year’s Student Court includes:

  • Lianne Luu
  • Jackie Nunes
  • Bertha Castaneda-Guzman
  • Misha Demchuk
  • Case Francis
  • Steven Mezzacappa
  • Tim Farley
  • Pj Tatano
  • Jimmy Frisbie
  • Kayode Oduwaiye


The University Court consists of three men and three women who are professors, faculty members, or staff nominated by students and selected by a panel of student leaders. This year’s University Court includes:

  • Dan Murphy
  • Josh Keilholtz
  • David Winterich
  • Katherine Masters
  • Judy Albin
  • Molly Countermine


This year, Homecoming also invited members of past Student Courts to apply for the second-ever Alumni Court. “I am really excited for the Alumni Court to return to Penn State and swell with the pride they had when they were students here,” Etzi said. This year’s Alumni Court includes:

  • Sukhi Jolly
  • Genevieve Brill Murphy
  • Will Sheehan
  • Christopher Bogden


The Homecoming King and Queen will be chosen from the Student Court members based on a student vote, which any student is eligible to participate in. The King and Queen will be announced at the Homecoming football game against Maryland on October 8.
