Homecoming Court

Homecoming is a time-honored tradition at San Diego State. Students, faculty, staff, and alumni gather to commemorate their passion for SDSU and recognize the outstanding achievements made by SDSU student leaders. Through recognition of the Royal Court, SDSU honors those exceptional students who have shown their dedication through extraordinary commitment to leaving a legacy of pride.
