2017 Homecoming Royal Court Contest

All UNC-Greensboro students are encouraged to participate in the Homecoming Royal Court 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 2017-2018 academic year. The selected King & Queen will be announced at Halftime during the Homecoming Soccer Game on Saturday, October 21, 2017 (Pictured at left: André White and Tiaira Moragne, 2016 Homecoming King & Queen)
