The Homecoming Committee works extremely hard to plan a week of great events. It requires a large time commitment during the year. So please consider carefully whether or not you are able to make that commitment.

There will be weekly semi-monthly meetings beginning in the fall and continuing into the spring semester. Members of the Homecoming Committee may not participate in certain events or be elected for Homecoming King or Queen.

Eligibility: All students and faculty/staff are encouraged and invited to participate in the Homecoming Committee. The leadership skills and experience gained by being a member are invaluable for future success and can be applied in various ways in future endeavors.

Applicants must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Have and maintain at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA at the time of application and during tenure on the committee;
  • Be enrolled as a USC Upstate student during the 2013-2014 academic year;
  • Be in good social and academic standing with the University;
  • Attend all meetings. Meetings will occur every Wednesday at 1 p.m., in the Office of Student Life beginning October 16 and continuing through the week before Homecoming. Meetings will not occur when classes are not in session;
  • Support and promote all Homecoming events before, during and after Homecoming Week.
