Hannah Mayer and Domenic Mesa, News Editors

Elana Bush

Name: Astrid Culp (she/her/hers)

Year: Sophomore

Mardi Gras Plans: No parties; maybe Yardi Gras if crowds aren’t bad, and I will definitely take photos of myself in the outfits I would’ve worn. I’m immunocompromised, and I’m not going to risk my health or others’ for beads.

Name: Maya Scholder (she/her/hers)

Year: Sophomore

Mardi Gras Plans: I am staying in my room as much as possible. I will not be involving myself with any social events or parties.

Name: Jessie Lehman (she/her/hers)

Year: Sophomore

Mardi Gras Plans: Going to walk around house floats, do research on history to learn a bit more and maybe dress up with roommates. 

Name: Abe Passman (he/him/his)

Year: Junior

Mardi Gras Plans: Maybe check out some of the house floats. Gonna use the days off for an extended Valentine’s Day celebration with my girlfriend. 

Name: Jean Allemond (he/him/his)

Year: Sophomore

Mardi Gras Plans: Sleep in, catch up on work, binge a show with my friends, maybe snag a king cake from work. I live downtown so I’ll probably order food in so I don’t need to interact with too many people.

Name: Ethan Sirhal (he/him/his)

Year: Sophomore

Mardi Gras Plans: I’m leaving to go home. Staying doesn’t seem worth the risk of getting suspended, and I feel like Tulane will be out to make an example of people.

Name: Rachel Landis (she/her/hers)
