My Homecoming Court experience was yet another example of what makes OSU a home away from home. It was an honor to attend the President's tailgate, watch the football game from the VES, be recognized on the field, and visit the President's box.

Being on the OSU Homecoming Court is such a huge privilege. My two court experiences have already opened up so many new doors and opportunities for me, and the academic year is just starting.

Being part of the Homecoming court has been filled with a lot of first-time experiences, which I didn't quite think would be possible during my senior year. I encourage anyone reading this to apply to HC court! The possibilities are endless. GO BEAVS!
