MSU ditches traditional homecoming king and queen roles

Posted: Updated:

Montana State University is gearing up for its Homecoming weekend, but this year holds a few changes for the celebration.

The university announced that it is getting rid of the traditional “Homecoming King and Queen” titles in favor of three “Homecoming Ambassadors” to represent the school.

Junior Connie Brownotter is one of eight student candidates in the running for a place on the Homecoming Court.

“When I found out I was a Homecoming candidate,” Brownotter says, “it was really exciting because we don’t often get minorities as candidates in this position. So being able to represent the indigenous community here at MSU is really exciting for me. It’s really awesome to be able to be a part of an awesome new change that we’re introducing to homecoming.”

The three student ambassadors will represent each of the three Homecoming platforms this year: leadership, service, and involvement.

Students leaders say they hopes these titles will better highlight what individual students give back to the community.
