Happy Carnival from Student Affairs! Though many of your students are veteran Mardi Gras attendees, some will be experiencing this world-renowned experience for the very first time! Take a look at our 2020 Mardi Gras Newsletter to learn about our special guest policies, dining hours, parade schedules, and safety tips. Your students will receive an electronic copy of this newsletter via email as well.
Our goal is for your student to get the most out of Mardi Gras rather than Mardi Gras getting the most out of your student because, as we say in New Orleans, “Mardi Gras is a marathon, not a sprint.” Please schedule some time to talk to your student about responsible behaviors and safe decision-making related to alcohol consumption, personal safety, transportation, and law enforcement.
We look forward to this time of year that is filled with joy, tradition, beads, king cake, and floats! The generosity, fellowship, and extravagance never cease to amaze us. If you can ever make it to New Orleans during Mardi Gras, we highly recommend you add it to your bucket list!
*Please note that due to Mardi Gras next week, we will not have a Parents of the Pack email newsletter for 2/25/2020. We will resume our weekly schedule the week of 3/2/2020.
