Voting for homecoming court will begin Oct. 5 on UNT’s OrgSync and is open for all students currently enrolled at the university. The polls will close Oct. 8.

In order to be qualified to run for a spot in the homecoming court, a student must be sponsored by a registered student organization, such as a Greek organization or Student Housing. The university requires the student to have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, and he or she cannot have run for homecoming court in previous years. Students currently on the Homecoming Crew are not allowed to run, and the candidate must be in good disciplinary standing with the university.

Once an applicant makes it through the process, a panel of judges will decide if the student’s leadership skills, university involvement and enthusiasm qualify them as a nominee. Once chosen as nominees, students are to participate in events and campaign for votes.

“We have a variety of staff and students who assist in the judging of homecoming,” Daniel Suda, coordinator of campus-wide events and traditions, said. “This year we had the assistance from 15 different judges to review the application and sit in interviews.”

The students who win the court are expected to represent UNT in a positive way and are to serve as role models for the student body.
