Although Homecoming 2020: Redbirds in Flight could not be held this past fall in person, the University is moving forward with rescheduled virtual activities. Homecoming: Redbirds in Flight will now take place April 5-11 with virtual or socially distanced events. Every day will have something for Redbirds including a pep rally, a chance to draw Reggie Redbird, a historical tour of the Quad, driveway tailgate parties, and more.

Also mark your calendars for Saturday, April 10 at 10 a.m. to catch our virtual Homecoming parade on Illinois State’s Facebook page.

Visit to keep updated on all programs and activities. Be sure to show your Redbird spirit on all your Zoom meetings too with our new backgrounds!
