OSU Columbus  |  Buckeye Link  |  Carmen  |  Find People  


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 an application. Based on application scores and GPA, individual interviews are offered and conducted by Ohio State faculty, staff, and alumni. The application and interview scores 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 Royalty.

Alexus Henry

Hometown: Ashville, Ohio
Major: Environmental Science
Rank: Sophomore
Student Bio: I am an active member of the ATI Community Council, planning and attending various student activities. I am also a member of Collegiate 4-H and serve as Secretary. I am a proud student of The Ohio State University knowing that it is the College of Food, Agriculture, and Environmental Sciences. From a young age, I knew that I wanted to go into a field within agricultural or environmental sciences, which motivated me to pursue becoming a Buckeye student. To me, being a Buckeye is a great honor that I will forever cherish. Being a Buckeye, you are a part of years of traditions at Ohio State along with the culture and spirit of OSU. Buckeye spirit is something that is now an inseparable part of my life.

Student Bio: I am a member of ACELT and serve as the social media ambassador. Being a Buckeye to me means that I have a community around that will help as well as be able to create a network with others. This allows me to pass not only the wisdom that was given to me by my mentors but pass on the life skills that I have learned over the years to the next generation of Buckeyes.

Student Bio: I am an Admissions Ambassador, Orientation Ambassador, and member of ACELT. I serve on the Community Service Committee in ACELT. To me, being a Buckeye is so much more than being a college student at The Ohio State University. It’s meeting some of the best faculty and staff a school could have, it’s making friends, memories and finding myself as an individual. Being a Buckeye is being a part of 29,217 students who strive in their work and fun fun with one another. To me, becoming a Buckeye was one of the best decisions I ever made!
