About 35 students traded their Sunday best for their Tuesday worst, girding for boisterous battle in the third annual Greek Life/Intra-Fraternity Council “Color Wars” competition. Clad in stainable duds and launching sponges drenched in nontoxic, washable paint, teams had some wet-and-wild fun while defending the courtyard outside Penn College’s Rose Street Apartments. The event is part of Greek Week activities, focused on recruiting members to the three campus fraternities and establishing a sorority interest group. A limited number of free T-shirts were handed out to participants.
