The campus of Mercyhurst University at North East took on a colorful shade last night, it was all part of Teal Tuesday on campus.

This is the second year for the event that was put together to raise awareness about sexual assault. Dozens of students were joined by faculty to march from the campus to Gibson Park where they participated in a penny toss into the park's fountain and prayed for victims and survivors of sexual assault.

After the march, participants released balloons as a symbol of freedom and courage.
