Court members are selected 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. The scores from the paper application and interview are combined with the student body vote, and the court is announced.

Court members then volunteer and serve as ambassadors during Welcome Week and Homecoming Week, prior to a student body vote and announcement of the Homecoming Queen and King.

Student Bio: Along with being a member of the social work club on campus I am also a leader in the class room and outside of the class room. I have lived in Lima my entire life so I have strong ties to the community and I have been involved with so much over the years. I volunteer at my church and the Lima soup kitchens, as well as other community events. I am a scout leader and I work with the youth of the Lima community to help keep them on the right path of life. I believe that I am the type of leader that Lima can be proud to have representing them as king in Columbus.
