It was the kind of week that made you proud to be a Redbird.

Alumni returned to campus September 30 through October 6 for Illinois State University’s Homecoming celebration, which marked the 150th anniversary of the Alumni Association. For many, it was their first trip to the new Hancock Stadium—and they even got to see a Redbird win over Western Illinois.

Students and alumni were sharing their Homecoming experience all week on social media, so STATEside wanted to highlight the “best of the best” Facebook posts, tweets, and Instagram photos from #ilstuHomecoming.

And it’s not too soon to mark your calendars for Homecoming 2014: September 29 to October 5!
