Below are some events geared toward parents and families of Illinois State University.
While attending Preview, students will have the opportunity to meet with their academic advisor, register for classes, meet current Illinois State students and their future classmates, interact with faculty and staff from various academic departments, and receive their Redbird ID card.
Following your participation at Preview or Transfer Days, Welcome Week is your next step in preparing for life at Illinois State. Welcome Week is both for incoming freshmen and transfer students.
All students who make an appointment to attend a Transfer Registration and Orientation Day are guaranteed the opportunity to meet with an academic advisor, attend an Academic Information Session with campus representatives, and register for classes. Students are also given the opportunity to participate in an Information Fair, tour the campus, and obtain their Redbird ID card.
Each year students, families, and alumni of Illinois State University gather and celebrate Homecoming with events, tailgating, and a parade.
