Illinois State student-athletes and coaches met students, kids, and members of the community at the Redbird Fan Fair on Saturday, August 16, 2014, at Horton Field House as part of Welcome Week. Attendees could get their photos taken with the athletes, Reggie Redbird, hula hoop, get autographs and ride big wheel trikes among other fun activities.

Illinois State students finished off their evening Saturday, August 16, 2014, with some glow-in-the-dark late night fun at Up Late at State’s Glow It Up. Students got free glow-in-the-dark items, food, danced to music of a local DJ, and got their faces painted as part of Welcome Week festivities.
