COLUMBIA — MU students in Greek organizations painted on windows of downtown businesses Thursday for the Decorate The District contest.

Fraternity and sorority members from FarmHouse, Phi Gamma Delta and Kappa Alpha Theta use sponges and glass paint Thursday to create a Homecoming mural on the front of Kaldi's Coffee. Participants in the Decorate The District contest were assigned a downtown business Oct. 4.
