UIS celebrates Homecoming 2010
The UIS community celebrated 40 years of history and showed off their Prairie Star pride during Homecoming 2010.
Participants packed the campus for the annual Homecoming Parade and Pet Parade, BBQ & Lawn Party and UIS Students vs. Alumni/Faculty/Staff Basketball game on Saturday, October 9. The day began with the 2nd annual UIS Homecoming 5K Run/Walk and "Through the Decades" Brunch.
Earlier in the week a Homecoming Pep Rally was held, followed by Mashed Potato Sculpting on Tuesday. Students were also given a chance to make their own spirit wear, treated to a performance by the Neo-Futurists, a homecoming dance and much more.
Students spent time volunteering at Ball Charter Elementary in Springfield on Friday as part of the Prairie Star Service Event. It’s UIS’ traditional way to end the week by giving back to the community.
