The annual Matafest is almost here to bring  students back to school, Mardi Gras style.

The Mardi Gras is a “cultural celebration (and) it’s a welcome back to students before getting to business of studying and hitting the books,” said Shanell Tyus, event manager for University Student Union (USU).

During the event, students would learn about different organizations, clubs and departments the university has to offer. According to Augie Garibay, activities coordinator, there will be 90 clubs ranging from fraternities and sororities to the Karate Club.

“(Meeting different clubs) can help get them through a lot of the stresses,” said Garibay. “When returning in the fall they are able to see an opportunity and make a connection with the university.”
