Event Description

Come home to Illinois State University! The Illinois State University Half Century Club honors all alumni whose classes graduated 50 or more years ago.

Join us April 27-28, 2018, for our Half Century Club reunion as we induct the Class of 1968 and enjoy a weekend full of reminiscing, reconnecting, and Redbird pride.

This special reunion is a chance to reconnect with your alma mater and celebrate all the successes Illinois State has experienced. This is a chance to hear how Illinois State University has evolved over time and hear from President Larry Dietz. It will be a weekend that will not be forgotten.

Events on April 29–30 are open to all classes from 1968 and prior.

Friday begins at 11 a.m. with the Half Century Club welcome luncheon in the Hancock Stadium Club. A chance to go on tours of Ewing Manor, Watterson Towers and Dining Commons or the historic Quad, and more follows the luncheon. This is a great chance to see all that has changed on campus.

Friday evening is highlighted by the Half Century Club dinner at the Alumni Center. Enjoy a reception and sit-down dinner and university updates from President Dietz. The highlight of the evening will be the induction of the Class of 1968 into the Half Century Club and the honoring of the landmark classes (1943, 1948, 1953, 1958, and 1963).

Saturday begins with the Half Century Club breakfast at the Alumni Center before a duo of sessions looking into the story of Illinois State told through campus buildings and the revitalization of the Bone Student Center.
