Get ready to #BackTheBirds for Homecoming 2016 Oct. 3-9.
Homecoming events and programs produce a welcoming environment as the campus prepares to welcome back alumni and friends. Several of Illinois State’s affinity alumni groups will be a part of Homecoming this year providing a chance to reconnect with fellow Redbirds and networking opportunities. These groups include the Black Colleagues Association and Latin@ Alumni Network.
The Black Colleagues Association (BCA) is a dynamic, diverse group of alumni and friends that hosts a variety of events throughout Homecoming weekend. This year’s events will begin with an ISUBCA Game Night on Friday, Oct. 7. Other activities throughout the weekend include participating in the Homecoming Parade, tailgating, attending the Illinois State Redbirds vs. Youngstown State game, and a scholarship brunch. ISUBCA has put together a Homecoming weekend package for those interested in attending all weekend events. Find a complete list of events, pricing, and registration.
