Visitors flocked to the Illinois State campus in October for Homecoming and Family Weekend, at the start and end of the month.

But in between there was plenty of other activity around campus, as fall weather started to turn Fell Arboretum all sorts of beautiful.

Every month on the STATEside campus blog, we use Storify to give our readers a “best of” photo gallery, powered by tweets, Instagram photos, and Facebook posts from the previous month. So here’s a look at the best photos of the Illinois State campus community on social media in October.

And check out our social recaps from #ilstuHomecoming and #RedbirdFamily Weekend.
