The Homecoming Court is an annual tradition that recognizes exceptional members of the LSU student body from all classifications. The Homecoming Court is chosen by a multi-stage selection process that includes judging panel application review, interviews, and a vote of the LSU student body. The Homecoming King and Queen will be announced at halftime during the LSU vs. Furman University football game on Saturday, October 26.

A panel of judges will review applications and select the top 17 men and top 17 women based on a first-round paper review of application. Applicants selected in this process will be posted to the Campus Life website by 7:00 p.m. October 19.
The top 34 candidates will then participate in a short interview between 3:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, October 8 or Wednesday, October 9. The panel of judges will select the top seven men and seven women, who will become members of the 2013 Homecoming Court. Members of the Court will be posted to the Campus Life website by 5:00 p.m. Friday, October 11.
