Mardi Gras: Are You Ready Wolfpack?
Whether a commuter student or out of state student, every student on campus looks forward to experiencing the Mardi Gras season. From multi-colored beads to costumes, Mardi Gras is the one holiday in New Orleans where it is perfectly acceptable to have King Cake for breakfast and going home before midnight is unheard of. For those students who aren’t from here, I suggest finding a commuter/ Mardi Gras pro to show you all the great spots to see the parades. Also, take a look at these photos of Loyola students enjoying the festivities to see what you have to look forward to! The first parade is on February 15th. Laissez les bon temps rouler! Let the good times roll!
