It’s Not Too Late to Get Involved in THON

On Sunday, the THON Committee Members were selected. About 3,200 more Penn State students are now part of the largest student run philanthropy in the world. For some people, this is the last step to getting involved in THON. But if you didn’t get selected for a committee, or if you want to get further involved, the THON Involvement Fair is in the HUB today just for you!

From 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., special interest organizations will be on the first floor of the HUB, just inside the main entrance, to tell you about their organizations and how you can get involved in fundraising and family relations.

If you haven’t joined an organization yet, this is a great opportunity to see all the different organizations represented at one place. A special interest organization is one that participates primarily in THON, unlike general organizations which have a primary purpose outside of THON. General organizations are those like club sports, councils for the different colleges, and major specific groups. Special interest groups include Atlas, Ohana, and many other organizations. Some are very large with hundreds of members, while some are much smaller with 20-50 members. There is definitely a wide array of clubs to choose from so you can make a choice that is right for you, based on size or makeup.

So if you haven’t gotten involved with THON yet, make sure you stop by tomorrow and join my organization FutuRES find an organization that’s right for you!
