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. There is plenty of time to deck out your workspace to enter this year’s competition. Along with the events below, consider donating blood during Homecoming week!

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!
