Let the SAFE Times Roll!

Mardi Gras is here and the whole city and campus is getting into the spirit! Whether this is your first Mardi Gras or your 21st, it's a good idea to prepare yourself for the festivities to ensure a safe and fun time. Here are some quick tips to get you through the weekend.

 

Quick Tips for a Fun and Festive Mardi Gras

  • Stick with friends—stay together and leave together
  • Make sure to charge your phone before going out
  • Pack a backpack or bag with parade essentials: Water, snacks, hand sanitizer, your ID, and health insurance card
  • Make a plan for transportation to/from the parade route-bring cash for a cab
  • Be respectful of other people's claimed territory and share your own space
  • If you choose to drink:
    • Avoid trying to "Keep Up" or "Catch Up" with your friends.
    • Stick to your own limits.
    • Know the source of your drinks
    • Pace yourself-it's a marathon, not a sprint!
