Up All Night: Delta Chi and Kappa Kappa Gamma

At three in the morning, THON organizations are starting to see their numbers drop. The passion is still here, as well as the football game + second half of a Harlem Shake video atmosphere, but people eventually have to sleep. Standing out in yellow T-shirts, Delta Chi and Kappa Kappa Gamma are setting the bar high for late night participation.

Delta Chi Head THON chair Luke Olsen says the reason for the turnout is simple, “If you’re not sleeping, you’re here.” But this isn’t some sort of mandatory rule. In fact, they don’t even have signups or a schedule. Kappa Kappa Gamma’s THON chair Leah Sheppard elaborates, “It’s all volunteer. We have the obligation to stay as much as possible. The fact is, the dancers are working really hard for us. So we are going to work hard for them!”

It’s not all hard work though. Sheppard says, “We also enjoy each other’s company.” Well, if you’re spending all weekend with them, you better say that!

For these two organizations, THON isn’t just a weekend. It’s all year. “We’re really good about canning trips,” said Olsen. “It builds our friendships and we’re basically best friends. We spend a lot of time together outside of this weekend.”
