A milestone weekend as Illinois State celebrates 100 years of Homecoming!
Celebrating Homecoming with the Illinois State Black Colleagues Association (ISUBCA) is our favorite time of the year with this year more so than ever as we missed our Redbird family. It is a time to re-connect and fellowship with lifelong friends and experience our beloved University and its growing, talented student body.
ISUBCA invites alumni and friends to join us in a host of fun-filled activities all weekend beginning on Thursday night with our Virtual Scholarship Celebration. Friday we will host a Black Alumni Meet & Greet and encourage all to be on campus for Saturday’s parade, tailgate, and of course, the football game as the Redbirds take on the North Dakota State Bison.
Illinois State University Black Colleagues Association's Homecoming events will be held on campus and we have a room block secured at the Holiday Inn Bloomington – Normal. To gain access to the Black Colleagues Association room block, you must register for the BCA Meet & Greet. Registration is open through October 6.
