POSTPONED: The Half Century Club Reunion has been postponed as the University continues to monitor and take all necessary precautions to minimize the COVID-19 situation and keep the safety and well-being of our University community our top priority. We thank you for your understanding and hope to see you at a future event.

The HCC planning committee is looking to hold a reunion on Friday, October 23, during Homecoming 2020 weekend. A new mailed invitation and RSVP information for the new date will be sent in the next few months.

The Illinois State University Half Century Club honors all alumni whose classes graduated 50 or more years ago. Join the Alumni Association May 1–2, 2020, for the Half Century Club Reunion as it inducts the Class of 1970 and enjoys a weekend full of reminiscing, reconnecting, and Redbird pride.

The weekend will include a dinner reception, tours, a luncheon, interactive experiences, and other activities. More information to follow when registration opens in January 2020.

Make sure to check out more activities and services offered through the Redbird Prime Network or take a look at some of the photos from the 2019 reunion weekend.

Those wanting to be involved with the planning of this year’s Half Century Club Reunion can reach out to Stephanie Duquenne, director for Alumni Engagement at Illinois State University.


Hotel blocks are available for the weekend. Make your arrangements early and book under the Illinois State Half Century Club block:
