BATON ROUGE – LSU announced the 2022 Homecoming Queen and King on Saturday, Oct. 22, during the game with the University of Mississippi. The full court and senior royalty candidates were introduced at halftime and completed the traditional walk across the stadium field. Olivia Christopher, a graphic design senior from Mandeville, La., was announced Homecoming Queen, and Navy Coggins, a kinesiology senior from Bernice, La., was announced Homecoming King. 

The court is comprised of 14 exceptional students that represent the sophomore, junior and senior undergraduate classifications plus graduate, law and veterinary school students. Only the six senior court members are eligible for king or queen honors.

The Homecoming Court is an annual tradition that recognizes exemplary members of the LSU student body. The Homecoming Court is chosen in a multi-stage selection process that includes an application review round, a round of interviews with judges and a vote by the LSU student body for king and queen.

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. This year’s court was joined by 2021 Queen Claudia Henry and King Chandler Black to transfer the title.
