Homecoming has been a tradition at the University of Missouri-St. Louis since its earliest days in the 1960s. In one of the week’s most celebrated traditions, the Homecoming Court will reveal the Homecoming King and Queen, each the winner of a student-wide polling process of nine candidates—four candidates for King and five for Queen. The winners will be announced at the dinner and dance at the Chase Park Plaza Hotel at 6:00 p.m. on February 6.
Voting for Homecoming Court will begin February 1 and continue through February 5. Students can vote by going to http://umsl.edu/go/homecomingvote, using the Campus Life portal on UMSL’s Mobile App, or on the Homecoming website homecoming.umsl.edu.
Individual, couple, and student organization/department tickets to the dinner and dance will be available for purchase at the Office of Student Life, 366 MSC. Tickets cost $30 per individual, $55 per couple, and $275 for a table of 10. For more information on tickets, visit homecoming.umsl.edu/events/.
