Alumni and friends came back to Normal and joined us October 16–21 in celebrating Homecoming 2017: Building a Legacy.

Redbirds have been celebrating Homecoming since 1921, making this year Illinois State’s 96th 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 social media using the official hashtag #RedbirdHomecoming. Here are some of our favorite student and alumni pics, tweets and posts from 2017. You can also check out official University photos on Illinois State’s Flickr account.


Very nice variety of Good pictures----I enjoyed them-----THANKS for sharing !
If we had a Homecoming King and Queen, would have liked to see a pic of them.
