THON Officially at Capacity for Remainder of Event
Just after noon today, THON announced that the BJC was officially at capacity and that no one else would be allowed in for the remainder of the weekend.
The BJC is now at capacity and will not be allowing admission for the rest of THON Weekend. Thank you to all of our supporters!

THON 2013 was plagued with capacity and line issues, but those issues were almost entirely fixed in 2014. The new virtual line system, when needed, seemed to flow pretty flawlessly (aside from running out of bracelets) and there were never huge crowds waiting out in the cold to get into the BJC.
In recent history, the BJC reached capacity at around 7 or 8 a.m. The fact that it took another 4 hours is a testament to the work THON did to address last year’s problems (last year’s issues may have scared some away, too).
Either way, the BJC is rocking right now at full capacity. Three and a half hours until the big reveal!
