We missed you, Redbirds.

The Illinois State University campus sprang back to life in August as students returned for the start of fall classes. From move-in to Welcome Week to Festival ISU, the Illinois State campus was buzzing with excitement for the new school year.

Every month on STATEside, we share some of our favorite photos that were posted by Redbirds on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter from the previous month, using the Storify tool.
