Homecoming Royal Court is an honored tradition of UNC Greensboro’s Homecoming celebration to showcase and recognize a few of the many outstanding students at UNCG. The Royal Court is composed of eight (8) students who shall represent the University and student body at various campus and community events. Candidates compete annually for this honor, which recognizes two UNCG students for their participation in campus life and their promotion of school spirit. The Royal Court will be presented and the two UNCG Royalty winners announced at the annual UNCG Homecoming Block Party. The two winners, in addition to the title and honor, will receive other rewards and responsibilities including: professional headshot, financial support for required community service project, 15 community service hours, requests to emcee various campus events, and UNCG sponsored professional development/leadership trainings. 

Please note that the Homecoming Royal Court selection process and contest is not a beauty pageant or a popularity contest. Royal Court will be screened and ultimately selected based on the applicant’s’ ability to articulate and demonstrate academic performance, curricular and co-curricular involvement, contribution to the university and the community, and school spirit.
