Penn State 2018 Royalty Courts
Beginning in 2018, Penn State Homecoming will eliminate the gendered titles of “Homecoming King and Queen”, as well as rid the number ratio of male to female representation within the court. In an effort to embrace diversity and gender inclusivity within our community, ten candidates who capture the essence of the values we hold true as a university will be chosen, regardless of their gender, gender identity, and gender expression to represent the Senior Class as members of the Student Court.
In the past, the top two members of the Student Court who were once known as “King and Queen,” were crowned during the annual Homecoming Football game. In an effort to embrace change within our organization, we are looking to acknowledge the top two recognized students with the Guide State Forward Award.
As Student Court members, these outstanding students will have the opportunity to showcase their talents, participate in university-wide service, as well as engage and participate with each event occurring during Homecoming Week.
Homecoming as an organization supports the continued ideas of the “All-In” initiative, by embracing the individual experiences and backgrounds of each Nittany Lion that make up the Penn State family.
