The Battle is On: Mr. and Mrs. THON Pageant

This Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. in Eisenhower Auditorium the battle for Mr. and Mrs. THON will commence. Two captains from each committee will compete, but only one couple will be able to call themselves this year’s Mr. and Mrs. THON. These couples must perform in a talent show, with the winner of that round being selected to answer a Q&A with the judges in order to determine who will take the crown.

This year there is also an added twist to the pageant to keep things interesting: The winners can come from two separate committees. This new rule promises to make things more cut throat than ever before as you can see from the video below.

To get tickets hit up the HUB-Robeson Center Information Desk between 11 a.m.- 2 p.m., the Bryce Jordan Center from 9 a.m.- 6 p.m., Eisenhower Auditorium 8 a.m.-5 p.m., or the Penn State Downtown Theatre Center 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Tickets are only $4.00. Please note that they’re general admission, so whoever you walk in with is who you’ll be sitting with.

Good luck to all contestants and may the odds be ever in your favor!

DIY Halloween Costumes

Halloween is arguably the greatest weekend here at Penn State–costume parties and candy, what could be better? Unfortunately, it is also one of the most expensive. If you want to do Halloween properly, you have to have at least three clever costumes, because repeating is lame, and not dressing up is even lamer. Pre-made Halloween costumes happen to be incredibly expensive, and pretty much super boring. So, your options are pretty limited. Your best bet is scouring thrift shops and your own closet to DIY your own perfect costumes. Here are a few options that we came up with.
