Redbirds don’t have to be on campus to experience the excitement and spirit of Homecoming 2017: Building a Legacy. Regional alumni networks will host Homecoming To Go watch parties on Saturday, October 21, as Illinois State takes on the South Dakota Coyotes at 2 p.m. (CST) at Hancock Stadium.

Homecoming is the second largest Illinois State tradition and no matter where Redbirds live, they can take part in the same energetic atmosphere that will be on campus. Reconnect with alumni, cheer on the ‘Birds, and celebrate #RedbirdHomecoming.
