Homecoming Court activities:
M-F Week 4 – Student Center Terrace
Join the Homecoming Court members each day during week 4 from 12pm-1pm on the Student Center Terrace while they compete for the titles of King and Queen.
Sat 1/30 – Aldrich Park
UCI’s Homecoming Festival is a long-standing tradition where students, alumni, faculty and staff, and friends come together to enjoy live entertainment, food, and great company—all while showing their Anteater Pride. The festivities in Aldrich Park will include engaging innovation exhibits, live music and dance performances, a Family Fun Zone, popular food trucks, fun games, free swag and much, much more! There will be guest appearances by Peter the Anteater, the UCI Spirit Squad, coaches, players and others.
Sat 1/30 – Bren Events Center
After the festival, join thousands of other anteaters to cheer on our 2015 Big West champion men’s basketball team as they host UC Santa Barbara! Our Anteaters were picked as the pre-season favorite to win the conference in 2016. At half-time we will crown your 2016 Homecoming King and Queen.
2016 Homecoming Court Candidates
My name is Jordy and I am a Criminology, Law and Society major with a minor in Psychology and Social Behavior! I am from Calexico, California, a tiny border town.
I am running in honor of my mom, who always encouraged me to run for homecoming during high school, but I was so intimidated! Now, I am just so excited to even be on the Court and be a UCI “Princess!”
I can normally be found consuming Coffee or French Fries in Middle Earth or Disneyland!
My life goal is to open a homeless shelter in my hometown and I want to work with at-risk youth and help them get into college immediately after graduation!
Thank you so much to everyone that is supporting me through this fun time! See you at the game!
UC Irvine has been my home away from home, where the people I have met and the experiences I have experienced have shaped me into the woman and proud Anteater I am today. From every late night Seaside run to all-nighters for finals week to one too many cups of $2 boba bought and more, my time at UCI is something that I will always be grateful for.
Some of my involvements over the past 4 years include: Kababayan at UCI, the Filipino organization on campus where I serve as this year’s Pilipino-American Culture Night (PACN) Coordinator for our 37th annual culture night; KUCI, where I host my own radio music show called “The Lo Down”; Campus Representatives, where I represent UCI and tell prospective anteaters why I love UCI through college fairs and campus tours; Associated Students of the University of California, Irvine (ASUCI), where I have interned and also served as an Assistant Commissioner for the Office of Student Services Festivals Commission, now called Campus Outreach; Student-Parent Orientation Program (SPOP), where I was a staffer for the 2014 Freshmen and Transfer Student Orientations; and Mesa Court Council, where I was a representative for my freshman year hall, Cumbre.
Currently, I work at Disneyland, where you can always overhear somebody commenting about creating magic or having a magical moment. My college experience has also been filled with these. I have had dance offs with Peter the Anteater. I have been deeply inspired by fellow students, while I working at the disabilities center, and I have welcomed a freshman class to UC Irvine as a SPOP staffer… Obviously, this list could be endless. I could ramble on and on about UROP projects, KUCI News, AnteaterTV, or meeting Keegan Michael-Key, but what remains the most dear to me, are the magical moments of experiencing new cultures, learning about new traditions, and listening to new beliefs. I am deeply grateful for UC Irvine and am proud to be an Anteater! I am honored to be apart of this year’s Homecoming Court. Hope to see you at the basketball game! Zot, Zot, Zot!
