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. Western Kentucky football game on Saturday, October 24.
ALL LSU students are eligible to apply for and represent LSU on the Homecoming Court, including first-year students.
(1) Judging Panel
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. The 34 students selected in this round to advance to interviews will be announced on the LSU Homecoming website October 2 by 7 p.m.
The top 34 candidates will then participate in a short interview. The final 14 students selected in this round will be the members of the 2015 Homecoming Court and will be announced on the LSU Homecoming website October 9 by 7 p.m.
(3) Student body vote
The LSU student body will vote for Homecoming King and Queen from noon October 12 through 11:59 p.m. October 22. Only senior members of the Homecoming Court are eligible for Queen and King.
Participation in the Homecoming Court selection process as an applicant or voter is free and open to all LSU students regardless of classification.
