What makes you #RedbirdProud?

Students cheer at Hancock

Students cheer on the Redbirds at opening night of the new Hancock Stadium on September 21, 2013.

What makes you proud to be a Redbird?┬áIt’s a simple question, but each Illinois State alum has a different answer.

As campus prepared for Homecoming 2013 last week, we asked our alumni and students on Facebook and Twitter to tell us what makes them #RedbirdProud. Some of the best responses are below.

And continue the conversation by sharing your Redbird pride on social media, using the hashtag #RedbirdProud.
