    Summer Events at Illinois State

    Visit our campus alongside other future Redbirds! Pick a date that works for your family—no matter what you choose, you'll love your time at Illinois State. We have two types of events where you can learn about Illinois State, tour our beautiful campus, see inside a residence hall, and explore more about all we have to offer at an Academic and Student Services Fair.

    Open House

    • An in-depth event that lasts from 9 a.m. until mid-afternoon, with optional early bird sessions
    • Academic presentations where you'll meet with department representatives
    • Breakout sessions about financial aid, making a successful college transition, and life as a Redbird

    Red and White Day

    • Four-hour event covering the most important information about Illinois State
    • Complimentary lunch in a dining center so you can get a taste of life as a Redbird
