While Penn State may hold a dance marathon that’s the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, it doesn’t hold the only dance marathon. There are many universities across America that fundraise in a year-long effort, have executive committees, and dance for hours on hours — just like we do — in support of all sorts of great causes. Here are a few we’ve ranked as the top fundraisers.

Next year, THON will add a 16th position to its current 15-member Executive Committee. The function of the Rules and Regulations Director will be replaced with two new positions: R&R Event Safety Director and R&R Volunteer Safety Director.

By the end of this coming weekend, you’ll have laughed thousands of times with your friends, danced hundreds of times to the best mix of music, and cried a few too many times from deliria and listening to heart-breaking cancer stories. Before you get to all of that, though, you should take a look at what to do and not do.

THON is only 14 days away, but you probably already know that. Other than the natural inclination to check your calendar three times a day, there are plenty of signs all around campus that the big weekend is almost here.

Have you ever wondered what THON volunteers will possibly do with their lives after they cross the stage and accept their diplomas? One group of Penn Staters has taken their knowledge and passion for THON to create a new event that is still FTK.

Heartbreaking news has rocked the THON community over the recent week: Seven-year-old Laney Brown, a Penn State Berks' THON child, only has a few weeks to a few days to live. But through a robust Facebook page maintained by her family, the overwhelming support of the community -- both THON and beyond -- and a fighting spirit, Brown is making the most out of these trying days.

As beautiful as we all know the Arboretum already is (say that five times fast), director Kim Steiner and his team have decided to expand the venue in hopes of making it more interactive and kid-friendly.
