THON Weekend Countdown: 100 Days ’til THON Celebration

It seems like it was just yesterday that the Committee Members were being announced. Now, we are less than 24 hours away from the 100 Days ’til THON marker, and the reality that THON Weekend is just around the bend is setting in. As always, an action-packed afternoon at the HUB has been planned for us all to gather in anticipation of the countdown, ending with a Silent Rave and aerial picture outside of Old Main.

Beginning at 11 a.m., the HUB will be bustling with performances by THON’s Got Talent contestants, a Four Diamonds family speaker, and line dances aplenty. Committee tables will be set up for a chance to enter the THON Raffle and THON Trivia, as well as plenty of THON gear for your purchasing pleasure.

Then at 2:30 p.m., participants are to clear out of the HUB, and reconvene in front of Old Main for a Silent Rave at 2:45 p.m. The playlist includes:

K’Naan- Wavin’ Flag
David Guetta ft. Kelly Rowland- When Love Takes Over
Willow Smith- Whip My Hair
Rusted Root- Send Me on My Way
Chris Brown- Forever
Lupe Fiasco- The Show Goes On
Alexandra Stan- Mr. Saxobeat
Daft Punk-Harder, Better, Faster
Whitney Houston- Your Love is My Love

So make sure to throw those jams on your ipod or iphone (does anyone really use a different mp3 player?)and grab some headphones! Then, the THON aerial picture will take place at 3:00 p.m.

For further details and instructions, check out the Facebook event.

Jim’s Army & Navy: The Greatest Store Ever

For those of you who have ventured onto the west side of Beaver Avenue, there is a good chance you have passed by Jim’s Army & Navy. If you are one of those people, your first thought when passing by Jim’s was most likely, “What the hell is going on in this store?” When a store’s window display boasts handcuffs (they even come in pink), switchblades, throwing stars, machetes, other swords, and ammunition, you really have no choice but to be utterly confounded. Little did I know that I was about to walk into the greatest store ever.
