2019 Half Century Club reunion weekend day two

Saturday, April 27th 2019
7:30 am - 8:00 pm

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 26-27, 2019, for our Half Century Club reunion as we induct the Class of 1969 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 with new activities!

Events on April 26 and 27 are open to all classes from 1969 and prior. See Friday’s events too!

Saturday begins with a brand new experience! Guests will start at the Alumni Center at 7:30 a.m. with a continental breakfast and then visit the College of Education to see new spaces and create a one-of-a-kind take home piece. Afterward, the group will go to the Family and Consumer Sciences’ food lab where lunch will be served.

Saturday 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 1969 into the Half Century Club and the honoring of the landmark classes (1944, 1949, 1954, 1959, and 1964).
