Homecoming King & Queen

Every year, the Blue & Gold Society organizes the annual race for Homecoming King and Queen. Please see the schedule below to find out how to be a part of this exciting Pitt tradition.

Homecoming King & Queen

Aarti Kumar and Ryan Scandaglia, pictured above, were crowned Homecoming King and Queen in 2016.

Candidates and the student organizations who sponsor them, campaign during the week of Homecoming, spreading their Pitt pride all across campus. The student body votes for their desired King and Queen from noon on Thursday until noon on Friday, and winners are announced during halftime at the Pitt football game that weekend.

If you are interested in applying, please take note of the important dates below.

Thank you for your participation in the 2016 Homecoming election! You can view photos from this year's crowning, as well as photos from other years, below.
