Students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends all wear their Redbird gear on Fridays to show their Redbird Pride
Illinois State's newest tradition
One shirt at a time
Showing Redbird pride by donning Illinois State red every Friday is one of ISU’s newest traditions. The idea was introduced in the early 2000s by the Redbird Pride Committee, a group of campus staff and faculty and Bloomington-Normal community leaders. The idea continues be adopted by more of the campus and local community each year.
