The Homecoming Court and Homecoming King and Queen are a part of the annual Homecoming festivities at KSU. The purpose of the court is to recognize members of the student body who make invaluable contributions to the KSU community and represent the core ideals of Kennesaw State University as student leaders. Throughout the week of Homecoming, they serve as ambassadors of school spirit and pride as a Kennesaw State Owl. Voting for the King and Queen will take place during the week of Homecoming, and the winners will be recognized at the Homecoming football game against Charleston Southern.
