It’s not Maroon - It’s Falu

No, glaucous and coquelicot aren’t microbes studied by UChicago Biochem majors: they’re among these colors that never quite made it made it to crayon color status. 

Maybe wenge and fulvous would better represent UChicago - then again, it’s a little hard to dress Maroons in anything other than their namesake color. 

This is so cool. Get a behind the scenes look at life as a UChicago Maroon #monstersofthemidway

Homecoming Game

Sunshine, alums, and a great big dose of Maroon pride. During Homecoming weekend, the University of Chicago football team scored a 26-7 victory over Macalester College! #bleedmaroon

Undated, unidentified, but pretty cool photo of a UChicago football player. Who are you, mystery Maroon?

Homecoming Banners

Saturday was a good day: the sun was shining, the leaves were falling, there were free candy apples and popcorn and corn-dogs at our block party and the Maroons won! Also, there were beautiful banners from different UChicago houses and teams (via our instagram). 

Fall is quickly approaching and that means….football season! Our athletics department has put together a preview of the Maroons Football 2013-2014 season.
