On the morning of Fat Tuesday, Loyola University officials discovered that the letters L-O-Y-O from a sign on the school’s front lawn had disappeared.

Drake came up with the acronym YOLO -- "You Only Live Once” -- and the thieves may have wanted to create a sign of their own in honor of Mardi Gras. The L and A from the vandalized sign are still standing.
If you are the person with the Loyola YOLO letters, you're a hero and I want a picture with them— Rebecca Dowden (@rebeccadowden) March 4, 2014
Loyola is located in Uptown New Orleans. School officials told WDSU that the university was a "victim of Mardi Gras."
