Alumni and friends of all ages and from all over the map joined us October 3–9 in celebrating Homecoming 2016: A Normal Tradition.

Redbirds have been celebrating Homecoming since 1921, making this year Illinois State’s 95th Homecoming celebration! The weather was perfect and the campus community was excited to welcome alumni back to visit their home away from home.

Many students, alumni, faculty and staff shared photos on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook using the official hashtag #RedbirdHomecoming. Here are some of our favorite student and alumni pics, tweets and posts from 2016. You can also check out official University photos on Illinois State’s Flickr account.
