Share your latest news through the alumni magazine

The alumni magazine, Illinois State, is published quarterly in February, May, August, and November for members of the Illinois State University Alumni Association. A popular section of the magazine—Class Notes—allows alumni to share with fellow alumni and the campus community information on job changes, promotions, special honors, retirements, marriages, births, and adoptions.

Alumni are encouraged to submit their information, which will be published in the earliest possible issue based on the order the information is received and as space permits. Editors will not use information that is more than one year old, and engagements are not published.
