Back by popular demand: Redbird socks!

For the third straight year, those who make a gift to Illinois State University from now until June 30 will receive a pair of Redbird socks. This year’s red and white striped design features the retro “I-State” logo.

The socks are perfect for alumni, students, faculty, staff, and friends who want to show off their Redbird pride wherever they go. You can get your socks through June 30 at

“These Redbird socks have become really popular. Everyone’s always asking us how to get their own pair,” said Lora Wey, executive director of Annual Giving at Illinois State. “The socks have also become a fun way for our supporters to show the world they care about Illinois State.”

Redbird socks are available exclusively to those who make a gift to Illinois State. They are not sold in stores.

Those who receive their socks are asked to share a photo of themselves wearing the socks on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, using the hashtag #RedbirdSocks.
