Alexander named to Ohio State Homecoming Court

Oct. 12, 2015

Agricultural Communication senior Devon Alexander was named a member of the Ohio State University’s annual Homecoming Court.

Alexander is an active member of the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences Ambassadors, FarmHouse Fraternity, Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow, Office of Student Life Advancement, Pelotonia and Alpha Zeta Partners.

When asked what it means to him to be a Buckeye, Alexander said “It means being a part of a transformative community that is bold and noble in its pursuits. It surrounds you with a network of friends and mentors who are selfless as they serve others and the world. It embeds a sensation of pride within you that is unparalleled. It means redefining education and diversity so that together we can grow and explore. Being a Buckeye might sound exclusive, but it is quite the opposite. Being a Buckeye, most importantly, means being warm and welcoming because through its land-grant mission, it offers this educational experience to all.”

Court members are chosen based on their leadership qualities, spirit, integrity, and achievement through their contributions and involvement at Ohio State. The Court selection process begins with a paper application. Based on application scores and GPA, individual interviews are offered and conducted by OSU faculty, staff, and alumni. A student body vote is conducted to select a Homecoming Queen and King from the court selected by the interview process. Court members serve as ambassadors during Welcome Week and Homecoming Week.

Lisa Combs and Chris Page were announced as Homecoming Queen and King, respectively, during Saturday’s gave against Maryland.
