The members of the THON Overall Committee are some of the most recognizable people on campus (after JoePa and Graham Spanier, of course).

Each year the new committee is selected by the THON Overall Chairperson (to be announced soon) and THON’s adviser, Barry Bram.

The positions are open to anyone, though preference is given to those previously involved in THON, usually at the Captain level. Applications are due Friday March 25th. Candidates will be notified if they receive an interview on the 26th, with interviews running from the 27th through the 30th. The committee should be announced the 30th or the 31st.
