Homecoming Court Information

Homecoming Court 2019

The Homecoming Court was an honorable tradition for many years and the Homecoming Committee is excited to bring the tradition back to Indiana State’s campus. Instead of doing the traditional “King and Queen”, we’ve modernized the event and two Sycamores will be crowned “Royal Sycamores”!!

Process and Selection:

Students will apply to be on the Court. To apply, the student must fill out the Homecoming Court 2019 application via the Treehouse (found on the forms tab on the home page) and provide a resume. From here, the applicants packet of information (application and resume) will be reviewed by a panel of faculty and staff. This panel will narrow down the list to five; creating the 2019 Homecoming Court. The members of the Court are chosen based on their qualities in leadership, spirit, and achievement through academics, community service, and involvement on campus. Another panel of faculty and staff will conduct an interview with the members of the Court. This interview, along with a vote by the student population will determine two individuals to be crowned as the Royal Sycamores for 2019 at the Homecoming Football Game on Saturday, October 12! 

Requirements: Any undergraduate student who meets the following requirements is eligible for the Homecoming Court:

  • Must apply via the Treehouse (Homecoming Court 2019 - found on the forms tab on the home page )

Obligations: All applicants are required to attend an information dinner. Court members will also be required to attend select events throughout Homecoming Week.
