Family Weekend, set for October 25-27, 2013, is a Redbird tradition filled with fun events for students, their parents, and any other family members looking for an exciting experience!

This is a great weekend to connect with your family and enjoy all that Illinois State has to offer. Don’t miss comedian Bill Cosby on Saturday, October 26. Limited tickets are still on sale for this popular event.

Other events to attend include dinner and dueling pianos, entertainment by a magician, and bowling. Families can also have lunch and check out the newly renovated Hancock Stadium as our Redbird football team takes on the University of South Dakota. Families will have the opportunity to learn more about Illinois State and the student experience by attending informational sessions and university open houses.

Visit the Family Weekend website for more details and a schedule of events, or call Student and Community Outreach at (309) 438-5951.
