West Virginia University Student Organizations Services is accepting applications for the 2012 WVU Homecoming Court.

Applications are now available online at http://sos.wvu.edu or in the Student Organizations Services office in the Mountainlair. They are due at 10 a.m. on Tuesday (Sept. 4) in the Student Organizations Services office.

Members of the court will be selected by a five-person panel of WVU faculty and staff judges based on leadership, activities and campus involvement. Applicants must also submit an essay explaining why they are qualified to represent WVU as Homecoming King or Queen.

Voting for the Homecoming Court will take place on Sept. 26-27. Winners will be announced during halftime of the Sept. 29 WVU football game against Baylor.

Interested applicants must be enrolled at the WVU main campus as full-time students, have a minimum 2.0 cumulative grade-point average and completed a minimum of 89 credit hours. Former WVU Homecoming candidates are ineligible.
