THON 2010 Begins…

THONThe Collegian reports today that the 2010 THON overall chairperson has been chosen. Caitlin Zankowski, a senior majoring in industrial engineering, was very excited to begin working on the task ahead. Zankowski has worked her way up through the Rules and Regulations committee over the years, working as R&R Captain R&R Overall Chairwoman this year.

The other applicants were 2009 Family Relations Overall Chairwoman Katie Austin, 2009 Communications Overall Chairman Greg Tallman and 2009 Supply Logistics Overall Chairwoman Carley Bria.

While there are a lot of things to look forward to in the coming year, Zankowski said she is “excited to get the ball rolling” and “get Thon 2010 underway.”

It’s amazing that preparations for THON 2010 are already being made. Wasn’t it just a few weeks ago that THON 2009 ended? I guess though that in order to successfully run the world’s largest student-run philanthropy you need to plan for a long time.

Good luck Caitlin!

UPDATE: We wrote a blurb about this earlier today.

Senior Writes Final Column

Senior columns, with all their melodrama and platitudes, usually leave me eye-rolling and shaking my head with a vigor usually reserved for study abroad blog posts. But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
