THON Is Literally Tomorrow
We’ve all heard the phrase “THON is tomorrow,” to express the year long passion for the philanthropy.
Well, now it’s actually true.
There were many issues brought to light during THON Weekend 2013. With the new THON Overalls recently named, they have already found a potential solution to one major problem that THON 2013 faced: the long lines and frigid weather.
The overall committee announced this weekend that THON has been moved to tomorrow to combat any issues with the cold weather.
Ballsy move, Overalls. Ballsy.
During this past THON Weekend, several people were treated both in line and at the Mount Nittany Medical Center for hypothermia and other issues relating to the cold. One group of Penn Staters was overheard describing the weather to be “colder than a witch’s tit.” In an unprecedented event, the line to get into the BJC was closed by very early Sunday morning and remained closed through the completion of the event.
Many people stayed in the line long after it closed in hopes of still entering the building for THON’s finale, which ended up causing many of these problems. By moving THON to April, the weather will be much nicer for those who end up waiting in line after it’s announced that no more people will get in about 14 hours before the final reveal.
“We’re extremely excited,” said new THON Overall Ryan Patrick. “We will inspire miracles, tomorrow. Literally.”
