Richmond tradition calls for the election of a homecoming king and queen every fall. All the nominees compete in a gameshow and help serve treats during a dinner at the dining hall. Facebook “likes” also aid in the homecoming court battle.

This year’s homecoming queen was Rhiannon Bell, a southern belle from North Carolina. Last year, Rhiannon’s big – her “big sister” in Kappa Alpha Theta – Charlotte Boliver won Homecoming Queen. That family must have some good genes!
