It’s Homecoming week and with that comes activities and events going on almost every day this week.
Students were able to vote for the 2017 Homecoming King and Queen Tuesday through Wednesday at 5 p.m.
The Blue Key Honor Society Homecoming Show and Coronation will take place 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the Festival Concert Hall.
“Members of Blue Key are the MCs for the show, and NDSU students and organizations are invited to perform an act or skit in the show,” Kalley Norr, Homecoming chair for Blue Key Honor Society, said. “Following the talent portion, Campus Attractions will run the Coronation Ceremony.”
Candidates for coronation will walk out on stage in pairs and will be introduced. Once everyone is on stage, Campus Attractions will announce the Homecoming King and Queen.
Dani Girtz, vice president of Campus Attractions, said there is “a panel of volunteers that represent NDSU: two alumni, two students, two faculty and two staff members. They are split up into two groups, and each group then interviews either the queen candidates or the kind candidates. After all the interviews are complete, the panel deliberates for as long as they need to select the best six candidates for king and queen to represent NDSU.”
Proceeds from the Homecoming Show and Coronation go to Family HealthCare Pharmacy in Fargo.
“The beneficiary of the show is chosen by the active members on Blue Key Honor Society during the summer,” Norr said. Nonprofits are nominated and presented to the members, and then the members vote on the nonprofit for that year’s show.”
Tickets for the Homecoming Show and Coronation are $5 and can be purchased in the Memorial Union at a contact table or at the door.
