MU Homecoming fun leads to plenty of clean up
COLUMBIA - The University of Missouri's 107th Homecoming has come and gone, but left behind a lot of clean up.
Students across MU's campus and Columbia spent the day scrubbing windows, taking apart floats and deconstructing scaffolding from campus decorations.
On Broadway, two MU freshman were rushing to get paint off of the front windows of Swank Boutique.
“So, now since the festivities are starting to end, we’re cleaning these windows up,” said Robbie Wallace.
Wallace was working with Ben Maune, both are members of Student Hall Government at MU.
Other Student Hall Government members painted the windows, so Wallace and Maune got stuck with the clean up.
Wallace said MU's homecoming is unique, from what he's seen.
"I've been to a couple of homecomings and I've never seen the downtown of any of the schools painted on windows or having a parade, so that was really cool," Wallace said.
As a freshman, Wallace felt like homecoming makes MU feel more like home.
"It really makes the city feel like it's your own," Wallace said. "You know since you come up to college and not everyone grew up here, but then it makes you feel pretty homey and makes the adjustment a lot better."
At the end of the day, Wallace is ok with the chore.
“It is definitely worth the clean up,” he said.
