Despite MU's Homecoming football game being postponed, students still participated in Decorate the District on Thursday in downtown Columbia. Several MU student organizations painted the windows of businesses for Homecoming. The murals featured classic Mizzou icons like the columns and Truman the Tiger, while also incorporating elements of each organization. The paintings will be viewable through Sunday.
