Every year, the Redbird community joins forces to make Illinois State University our students’ home away from home.

Thanks to the support of faculty, staff, and community partners, students have a move-in experience that is as seamless as possible. Once moved in, students have a variety of Welcome Week events to choose from. Welcome Week is designed to build connections between students and the campus, assist them in learning about what it means to be a Redbird, and gain some on-site knowledge of the campus and its resources. It is also about having fun!

Check out some of the best photos, videos, and posts shared over the course of this exciting week!
