99 Days Until THON!!!

_DSC3141Yes, you read that right. The countdown to THON 2010 is now in double digits. To celebrate the last day of triple digit days, 100 Days ’til THON was held in the HUB yesterday. The fun-filled event included appearances by the Penn State Cheerleaders and the Nittany Lion, in addition to a rendition of the THON 2009 Line Dance by the Morale Captains.

Merchandise Committee members sold THON gear, including pre-sales for THON 2010 logo gear (the logo will be unveiled at the Family Carnival on Sunday, an invitation only event). People passing through the HUB were asked to send letters to THON children who have been diagnosed with some form of pediatric cancer and had the opportunity to learn more about pediatric cancer and how it affects the children who have been diagnosed and their families.

The THON Entertainment committee released this video about 100 Days ’til THON… take a look!

Three Words: For the Glory

When I sat back one night in January thinking about my time at Penn State, I tried to come up with a single word that would adequately describe my experiences here. As I attempted to determine what that magic word might be, my mind began to grasp the absurdity of that challenge. How could I possibly distill four years of my life, countless friendships, and untold numbers of memories, down to a single word? An impossible task to be sure. So instead, I took the easier road and went with three words: For the Glory.
