Alpha Sigma Tau hosted its annual campus-wide Mardi Tau event Fri., Feb. 12 with a “Back to the Bayou” theme. The sisters of AST decorated Belmont University’s Neely Black & White dining hall in a Bayou-Mardi Gras fashion. The event was a huge success with record attendance, reaching 200 people at the peak of the evening and a steady 75 attendees at any given time. The event offered a photo booth and fortune-telling tent, a DJ, and some of Belmont’s finest student performers. Alpha Sigma Tau upheld the tradition of selecting a Mardi Tau Court. Mardi Tau King, for which only greek men can be nominated, was Alpha Tau Omega’s Todd Farrell, while Mardi Tau Queen (always an AST sister) was Lara Jabour. Duke (non-greek male) was Read Davis and Mardi Tau Dutchess (Greek female who is not an AST) was Phi Mu’s Rachel Knight.
