Got Spirit? THON says YES
The people at this year’s THON are colorful. Very, very colorful. Here’s your chance to see some of the groups that went all out to show their THON spirit. Unfortunately, the Bryce Jordan Center is a huge place and I couldn’t document all of the weird stuff that’s going on—there is a LOT of weird stuff going on.
Here, in no particular order, are some of our favorites:
Blue White Society
May the force be with you! The Blue White Society came prepared with a whole arsenal of light sabers. Thankfully they’re all blue—we don’t have to worry about any Sith Lords taking over THON this year. Still, I wouldn’t want to sit next to these guys!
Dyed hair, mardi gras beads, GLITTER! What’s not to love?
Gamma Phi and Acacia teamed up with letters, matching shirts, “not-so-terrible towels”, and their dancers faces printed out onto signs. I’m sure they appreciate that.
Penn State Equestrian Team
Check out the signs! Check out the tutus! I’m told they were going to have several live horses as props before security turned them down. Too bad.
Alpha Kappa Psi
Look, if you bring a giant inflatable whale to THON, you’re probably going to get your picture taken. These guys were thinking ahead. What their group lacked in size and enthusiasm, they made up for in giant inflatable whales.
