For the first time in the University of Missouri–St. Louis’ longstanding homecoming tradition, students were able to vote for any two royalty candidates, regardless of gender identity.
The shift in voting led to the crowning of Sydni Jackson and Amanda Vollmer Saturday during the Dinner and Dance at the Marriott St. Louis Grand Hotel.
Following their wins, UMSL Daily caught up with Jackson, a civil engineering and Spanish major, and Vollmer, a nursing major, about the homecoming festivities and other favorite experiences at UMSL.
