2019 Royalty - Benedikt Dorweller & Sophia Hoiseth
Minnesota State University, Mankato has made it a tradition to embrace and encourage all students to get involved. In 2016, the Homecoming Committee, Student Events Team, and the Minnesota State Student Association, (MSSA) have worked together to discuss the topic of the King and Queen titles to be inclusive.
“Minnesota State University, Mankato prides itself on diversity and inclusivity for all students. The Homecoming Committee chooses royalty based on leadership, involvement, academic excellence, and the most Maverick spirit,” said Kylie Morton, Homecoming Competitions Chair.
Each year moving forward, the Homecoming Committee will select a court of 10 individuals to represent the student body. From these ten, two Royalty will be chosen regardless of gender or sexual orientation.
Homecoming Royalty are chosen based on demonstrating leadership on campus, demonstrating involvement in campus activities, academic excellence, and ability to represent Minnesota State Mankato Homecoming with a positive image.
