Hospitality Committee Relaxes on the Floor

Taken: Doug Dooling

After serving cancer-hating patrons chicken fingers and walking burritos, Hospitality Committee members get to spend their relaxing time on the dance floor.

Committee member Shannon said that it was really cool to see the dancers. THON is now “down to the wire” and that “it’s a little rough, but inspirational.” However, they don’t completely remove themselves from the THON experience on their break. If dancers ask them for help, she said they’ll do anything to jeep their energy up.

Another HOS member, Dakota, shared similar sentiments. She thought it was awesome that after working concessions, they got to come down to the dance floor. It is “intimate and interactive.” For Hospitality members, THON isn’t over when the total is announced. Dakota will be at the Bryce Jordan Center until 8:30 to clean the concession stands. “I wanted to do this and I will stay as long as I need to stay.”

A freshman, she hopes she’ll be on the Hospitality committee next year with a leadership position.

“Hopefully.”
