Applications for the 2012-13 Michigan State University Homecoming Court are now being accepted. MSU departments, units, organizations, faculty, staff and students are encouraged to nominate a deserving student who exemplifies the qualities of leadership, spirit, integrity and achievement through their contributions and involvement at MSU. While self-nominations are not allowed, students are encouraged to ask someone to nominate them if they are interested in a position on the Homecoming Court.

This year, Homecoming Court will feature 12 students instead of 10 as in years past.

The Homecoming Court selection committee, made of students, faculty, staff and alumni/community leaders, is looking for current MSU juniors or seniors who best represent the diversity and richness of the Spartan experience and who will serve as exceptional role models and ambassadors during the summer and fall of 2012 and the spring of 2013.

Being selected to represent MSU on the 2012-13 Homecoming Court is considered one of the highest honors for MSU seniors. The complete application packet is available online.

Requirements of Homecoming Court ambassadors:

  • Must be a full-time MSU undergraduate student who will have completed at least 90 credits (senior status) by Aug. 29, 2012
  • Must have and maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.5
  • Must be in good academic, legal and disciplinary standing

Completed Homecoming Court applications must be submitted online by 5 p.m., March 21. A completed application consists of completing the online database, uploading three documents (resume, letter of nomination and written response to three questions) and submitting a hard copy of the signed Homecoming Court release form. Late applications will not be considered. Questions may be sent to the court advisors Jodi Roberto Hancock at hancockj@msu.edu or Jane Olson at olsonja@msu.edu.
