Some new features of Homecoming 2006 include:

  • Redbird Walk – a card entitling you to discounts and specials at a variety of locations in downtown Normal, which is experiencing some exciting changes.  Check out all that is new, and visit your favorite collegiate spots. The Redbird Walk card is available exclusively to Illinois State alumni when registering at the Homecoming InfoCentre.
