​Congratulations to this year’s Homecoming Royal Court! Our three King and five Queen candidates were chosen through an application and interview process and will go on to compete in the Royal Court Contest during Homecoming Week. Make sure to come out on Tuesday, October 17 at 7:00pm to the EUC Auditorium for our contest where YOU get to vote for your favorite candidate following talent, attire, and question/answer competitions!
