All UNC-Greensboro students are encouraged to participate in the Homecoming King & Queen Contest. Candidates compete annually for this honor, which recognizes two UNCG students for their participation in campus life and their promotion of school spirit. The Homecoming King & Queen also represent the University at major events and on special occasions, and are among UNC-Greensboro’s most prominent student leaders. Winners will be required to plan and implement one major community service event during the 16-17 academic year. The selected King & Queen will be announced at Half-Time during the Homecoming Soccer Game on Saturday, October 22, 2016.

  • Essay Question #2: If you are crowned Homecoming King or Queen, what idea or ideas do you have for the required community service project?
