Mardi Gras celebrations are taking place throughout the world today, including here on the UST campus. Tonight the university will host the 64th annual Mardi Gras Gala benefiting the St. Thomas Fund. The Gala is one of the longest running traditions at UST and is well documented in the UST Archives. There, researchers can explore photos from past galas showcasing glamorous gowns and festive floats. The collection also includes Mardi Gras invitations, programs, and press releases.
