All currently enrolled LSU students are eligible to vote for the 2019 Homecoming King and Queen on TigerLink accounts using their LSU student credentials. Voting began Sept. 30 at 5 p.m. and continues through 11:59 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 10.

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. In 1992, LSU began selecting a Homecoming King to reign with the queen. In 2015, LSU elected its first international royalty, King Michael Panther Mayen, from South Sudan, Africa, who returned in 2019 to share his experiences with the 2019 Court. This year’s Court will be also joined by 2018 Queen Sarah Perkins and King Daniel Wolf.

LSU Homecoming Week is presented by LSU Campus Life, a unit within the Office of the Dean of Students and the Division of Student Affairs, and the LSU Center for Academic Success.

LSU Homecoming 2019 was made possible thanks to generous support from Campus Federal Credit Union, LSU Ring, LSU Student Government, and Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers.
