Mardi Gras ball is coming to ULM

SGA prepares to host annual event Mar. 3

Every year, the Student Gov­ernment Association hosts the Mardi Gras Ball.

This annual event is being hosted on Mar. 3 in the SUB Ballrooms.

Only two days before Mardi Gras Break, the ball is near the end of a week filled with last minute details.

It is also the close to a long seven week stretch between breaks.

Cory Williams, a freshman biology education major from Bossier City, is excited about the ball. “I’m pretty busy next week, but I’m still making time to go to the ball. It sounds like it’ll be a good way to start my break,” Williams said.

The ball will be from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m., with a cash bar and buffet. During the ball, the Mardi Gras King and Queen will be presented.

Admission is free for students, faculty and staff with their IDs, but guests need a ticket, which can be bought in the SGA office at $5 for student guests and $10 for faculty guests.
