The University Program Board (UPB) is excited to offer the following events during Homecoming week, October 3–9.

Homecoming Kickoff—October 3, 6–8 p.m., on the Quad

Start off Homecoming week the right way with a cookout on the Quad. Come celebrate this Illinois State University tradition with free food; lawn games; and appearances by Vice President for Student Affairs Levester Johnson, Reggie Redbird, and more. In addition to all of these festivities, the Homecoming court will be introduced and the event will feature performances by the Illinois State cheerleading squad and pep band.

Homecoming Carnival—October 5, 7–11 p.m., in the Bone Student Center

Come celebrate and participate in Illinois State’s Homecoming Carnival. This popular event features carnival games, free food, a magician, and our very own Gamma Phi Circus. Come take a break from studying and get a balloon animal or a henna tattoo, while eating cotton candy with your friends.

Homecoming Finale—October 7, 9–11 p.m., in the Bone Student Center’s Prairie Room

Come celebrate Homecoming one last time before the big game on Saturday! Enjoy free food and a DJ for UPB’s last big event of Homecoming.
