Good Morning:

The good times just keep rolling. Last weekend we hosted the Super Bowl. This weekend we welcome the world back to town to celebrate Mardi Gras. Tulane is heavily involved in the fun — with faculty, students and staff riding in parades throughout the city and our marching band performing in the Krewe d'Etat, Bacchus and Rex parades.

After Mardi Gras, we will keep the good times rolling and good deeds doing. From 4 to 6 p.m. on Ash Wednesday, the Tulane Interfraternity Council will host the First Annual Bead Tree Bonanza at the famous Bead Tree on the Gibson Quad. Everyone is encouraged to bring their bags of beads to the tree. Once there, you can add your own contribution to the Bead Tree and donate the rest to Arc Enterprises, which offers employment opportunities and independence to people with intellectual and related developmental disabilities.

Finally, to ensure our good time is a safe time for ourselves and others, please review these Mardi Gras safety tips. They are designed specifically for our students but include good advice for everyone.

Have a great Mardi Gras weekend,
