Windows throughout downtown Moscow were Vandal-ized Monday afternoon by dozens of University of Idaho students working to spread their school pride throughout the community. Dressed warmly against the October chill, the artists carefully daubed paint on shop windows in order to create tributes to heroes of all kinds.With and without capes, the works of art served not only to remind community members of the superheroes who work and play among them, but to inform them of the UI's homecoming theme: A Hero's Homecoming. "This is the second year we've gone ahead with the window painting. It's a way to reach out to the community and make the community part of our homecoming celebration," Homecoming Activities Chair Emily Rasch said. Two members of the Alpha Gamma Rho fraternity played catch-up to the rest of the painters, having been in class until the event was halfway through/Shanon Quinn, Moscow-Pullman Daily News.

Question: Did you participate in Homecoming activities during your Glory Days?
