Selection Process

Continue on the legacy of the Nittany Lion Family, as a member of the Penn State Homecoming Alumni Court. In order to have an opportunity to be on this specific court, the Alumni Court nomination form will go out during the summer months. A nominee need only be a Penn State Graduate. The only other requirement that we urge all nominees to have, is a sense of pride and commitment towards this University. After all nominations have been submitted, Homecoming Alumni Relations Captains will be interviewing all applicants in the form of either a phone or zoom interview. The final 2 members of the Alumni Court will then be selected in the coming weeks.


The nomination form is available on the homecoming website under the Homecoming Court and Alumni Court tab. The nomination form will close August 31st, so all nominations must be submitted before this date.


Begins early September
During the first weeks of the September, Homecoming Alumni Relations Captains will be conducting short Zoom or phone call interviews for all nominees. These interviews are used to select the final two members of the Alumni Court.

Court Selections

The Final Alumni Court Members are selected after all interviews have taken place and Alumni Court captains have a chance to deliberate.
