All currently-enrolled LSU students are eligible to vote for the 2018 Homecoming King and Queen on TigerLink accounts using their LSU student credentials. Voting began Monday, Oct. 8, at 5 p.m. and continues through 11:59 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18.

In 1933, LSU selected its first Homecoming queen. Marguerite Bass was chosen by the student body president and reigned with a princess and seven maids. The university selected its first African-American Homecoming queen in 1991 with the election of Renee Boutte. The following year, LSU began selecting a Homecoming King to reign with the queen. In 2014, LSU saw its most diverse king and queen couple ever, electing Bradley Williams and Chi Nguyen as their representatives. In 2015, LSU elected its first international royalty, King Michael Panther Mayen, from South Sudan, Africa. This year’s court will be joined by 2017 Queen Camille Faircloth and King Matthew Boudreaux.

LSU Homecoming 2018 was made possible thanks to generous donations to the university by Campus Federal Credit Union, LSU Ring, and Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers. Additional contributions were provided by LSU organizations and departments: Kitchens on the Geaux, LSU Auxiliary Services, LSU Alumni Association, Residence Hall Association, Student Activities Board, and Student Government.

LSU Homecoming is coordinated by LSU Campus Life, a unit within the Office of the Dean of Students and the Division of Student Affairs.
