Voting underway for Homecoming King and Queen

The purpose of Homecoming is to promote school spirit and pride for Cowley College. Homecoming week, February 12-15, is full of exciting events that build tradition, relationships, and pride for Cowley. This year’s homecoming theme is from the popular movie Wizard of Oz and since Cowley is in Kansas and there really is no place like home OR Cowley, there wasn't a more fitting theme for this year's homecoming sweepstakes.

Cowley students and employees have narrowed the Homecoming King and Queen nominees down to an outstanding group of five King and Queen candidates.

Voting can be done at www.cowley.edu/homecoming and will run January 22-29 with Cowley students, faculty and staff able to vote for their selection of Homecoming King and Queen 2018. read more
