An Active Royalty Court
Since the last few posts about Royalty in June, the 12 members of the court have been very busy preparing for Homecoming week. They have participated in numerous events and activities in anticipation for The Ultimate Homecoming!
This summer the royalty candidates were out representing the University of Minnesota at the Minnesota State Fair. They were present on Maroon and Gold day to socialize with fair-goers and facepaint Minnesota M's! Royalty also attended Welcome Week activities like Pride and Spirit and Gophers After Dark.
Last week, the week before Homecoming, each royalty candidate went through an extensive individual interview with a judging committee. This, along with all of the pre-Homecoming events, trivia games, and campus-wide voting, will determine this year's Homecoming King and Queen.
During Homecoming week, Royalty will be present at lots of activities. They will be playing trivia games such as Name That Tune and U-Trivia at the Cheerleading Competition. They will also be part of the Parade, riding in convertibles and showing their school spirit. During the Pep Fest, the coronation of the 2009 Homecoming King and Queen will take place. The reigning King and Queen will also be honored during the football game on Saturday. They will be introduced on the giant scoreboard at half-time. Be sure to cast your vote for your favorite candidate!
