As the Mardi Gras break began the Favrot Student Union Board (FSUB) wanted to bring New Orleans to Grambling and hosted their first Mardi Gras Ball. 

Mardi Gras is a unique holiday which oftentimes is celebrated with a get together for community members and guests which might be a dinner, a dance or informal party. 

Around 7 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 28 the Black and Gold Room was transformed into a magical venue for the FSUB Mardi Gras celebration. 

Students and faculty were dressed to impress. Food, drinks and king cake, of course, were served. There was a live band performance followed by a dance-off on the floor. DJ Twins mixed music for the assembled revelers. A photo booth with a massive collection of props was also on hand. 

“The best part of the Mardi Gras Ball was being able to see your friends all dressed up and making a few photos on the photo booth and I enjoyed the props and the bead necklaces,” Jaylarose Pittman, a sophomore from Milwaukee, Wis., said.

FSUB felt like the event was important to hold because some students may not have the luxury to leave school to travel home or go to New Orleans during Mardi Gras break. 

“Being from Los Angeles, California, I never knew this holiday was so important and special to people,” Deandrea Sims, a freshman psychology major, said. 

“I’m glad that I went and was able to get that experience.” 

Overall, the event had a great turnout and students should not be surprised if FSUB decides to bring back the magical event next year.
