The annual Kickoff ’Que will help welcome students back to campus, and give them a chance to celebrate the new year with faculty and staff.

Sponsored by Diversity Advocacy, the ’Que is a multicultural celebration for campus. Featuring free food and a live DJ, the barbeque will feature student organizations that work with underrepresented groups.

The back-to-school event will begin at 4 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 17, at the Bone Student Center/Bowling and Billiards Center courtyard. Participants must bring their valid Illinois State University I.D. to attend.

In case of inclement weather, the location will be moved to the Brown Ballroom. For additional information, call Diversity Advocacy at 438-8968.
