The Dean of Students Office invites campus and community organizations to take part in Festival ISU.
An exciting, fall tradition on campus, the 2019 Festival ISU will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, August 29, outside on the Quad. The event features hundreds of registered student organizations (RSOs) and academic/campus departments as well as nearly 100 community businesses and organizations. The Festival provides a fantastic opportunity to interact with students, while encouraging them to come together, learn about the myriad of ways to enhance their college experience, and discover how to get involved.
Be sure to check out the video recap of Festival ISU and learn about llinois State University student organizations!
Registered Student Organization (RSO): RSO Presidents should utilize the Redbird Life – How to Register Your Student Organization on the Redbird Life Platform instructions to complete an RSO registration within Redbird Life. As Redbird Life is a new portal, each RSO will need to register as a new organization. Once your RSO has completed the Redbird Life registration and obtained approval, your RSO will receive a link to register for Festival ISU in the approval confirmation email.
Campus departments: Please email Terri Haerr for the registration information.
Community vendors: To register to participate, please use our online application. Due to the popularity of this event, spaces fill quickly. If you have questions, please contact Terri Haerr in the Dean of Students Office at tlhaerr@IllinoisState.edu.
