Arrive Early, Arrive Often

Though dancers weren’t arriving until 4:30 p.m., students started lining up outside the BJC as early as 1 p.m. for THON.

Carly Littlehale of Gamma Phi Beta showed up early with her sisters to secure the best location in the stands, and were the third organization to get in line. Considering their spot right next to the floor, the extra wait time was worth it. The Gamma Phi Beta/Acacia team, as most teams have, scheduled shifts to make sure they reserve their spot. At least a few members of their 250 person team will be here all weekend. Littlehale, at THON for the first time, said she plans to be here for at least 30 hours of the 46 hour event.

This THON is particularly poignant for the team, as their THON child, Jed Smith, passed away in January. Still, Littlehale said this hasn’t discouraged her team or their seven dancers.

Check back for more updates, we’ll keep you updated on different organizations throughout the weekend.

Southern Kitsch and Sweet Tea at Cracker Barrel

After several months of anticipation, I was finally able to check out State College’s new Cracker Barrel on its opening day. Located at 215 Colonnade Blvd., there are few surprises at the chain’s new location. With rows of rocking chairs out front, checker boards and a game of peg solitaire at every table, I could have been at any franchise location in the country — not that that’s a bad thing.
