Homecoming King and Queen Applications Due by 4 p.m.

Registered Student Organizations as of October 1, 2020, may nominate a member/representative for Homecoming King and a member/representative for Homecoming Queen. The student must have an MSU GPA of at least 2.75. King and Queen nominees must be students at MSU with a GPA of at least 2.75. The candidates will be first judged by a screening committee, which will narrow the selection to five Queen and five King candidates.  The screening committee will be considering academic standing, personal interests, good grooming, and most importantly, involvement in extracurricular activities at Murray State.  The student body will then vote for their choice of Homecoming King and Queen online (MyGate) on October 28-29.  Applications for Queen and King are online.
