People are standing outside the Mountainlair with signs, handing out free candy and trying to initiate conversation with random people. Homecoming week has arrived at WVU.

The Homecoming Court was announced by WVU on Sept. 23 and is headlined by five candidates for King and five for Queen, all of which will participate in the Homecoming parade on Friday.

Following the parade, a king and queen will be anointed on Saturday at WVU’s home football game against Texas, but before the two crowns can be obtained, voting must occur.

Voting for king and queen takes place from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday on WVUENGAGE.
