Homecoming Candidate Information

2014hcCourt

The Homecoming Royalty selection process for 2015 is underway!  Campus Activities Board’s goal for the student Homecoming Royalty selection process is to create a sense of pride and fulfillment for those who are chosen to represent McKendree in the capacity of Homecoming King and Homecoming Queen.

To further that effort, a book scholarship of $500 will be awarded to those successful candidates. It is our hope that both the process and the resulting rewards spark competitive and institutional spirit within our McKendree community.

Candidates for King and Queen are nominated by their respective residence hall or registered student organization.  The top Queen and King candidates are determined by their application and a 20 minute interview with a panel of judges.

NEW for 2015, we will be adding a Homecoming Prince and Princess.  To be eligible for Homecoming Prince or Princess, all candidates must be currently enrolled as a full-time student, have a 2.5 minimum McKendree cumulative grade point average, be BELOW 60 credit hours at McKendree, and be in good academic and judicial standing with McKendree University.  Candidates put on probation during the selection process will automatically be disqualified.

Selection of the King and Queen is determined by their initial application, interview scores, and by student vote.  Homecoming voting will take place on BlackBoard.
