Homecoming events kicked off Sunday afternoon with the second annual Color Roar, which Homecoming co-chair Kate Geraghty said set a new attendance record and raised about $1,500 for the Summer Internship Grant Program.

“I’m still picking paint out of my eyelashes,” the Weinberg senior said with a laugh Sunday afternoon.

During the event, set to a playlist of ’90s favorites, students wearing white t-shirts flung colored paint at each other. The event, like the full schedule NU Homecoming committee has lined up for the week, is intended to prepare students for the football game against the Ohio State Buckeyes on Saturday night.
