Illinois State will recognize legacy families for their continued generational support with a special brunch over this year's Family Weekend! The brunch will spotlight Redbird families and help legacies stay connected to the University. The event will include brunch, a program featuring President Larry Dietz, legacy pins for first-time attendees and recognition of all legacies in attendance. The first 100 families to register will also receive a legacy t-shirt at the brunch!
