[Time Lapse] The BJC Turns into THON

[Time lapse] Watch as the BJC turns into the colorful spectacle that is THON.

THON 2014 Sings Along with Lenina Crowne at the BJC

If there's one thing that sets great cover bands apart from their less-gifted counterparts, it's whether or not the singers can, well, sing. Fortunately for Lenina Crowne, the vocalists -- Eric Faust (lead vocals) and Blake Gifford (singer-songwriter) -- more than proved their worth tonight in this indie-folk-rock band's first ever performance at THON.

THON Chair Interviews: Alpha Kappa Psi is FTK

Everyone know that THON was started and is supported by the Greek community at Penn State (it's the IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon, after all). But what about business fraternities?

It’s in the Details: Supply Logistics

Anybody involved in THON knows what it's like to beg for donations. For months we've stood on street corners, sent letters, held fundraisers all in the hopes of raising more money for the kids. But what about the other details that go into THON weekend? Who begs for the streamers, the balloons, the aspects that are often overlooked? A small committee of 22 captains and 1 director has that covered. All year long the Supply Logistics committee contacts vendors in the hopes that they'll be willing to supply kind donations--items other and money and food--that are instrumental in running THON weekend.

Phi Kappa Theta (Literally) Shines Bright

Phi Kappa Theta fraternity has lined their letters with LED lights to shine the brightest throughout THON. Paired with dance team Whiplash, they have five dancers representing them in THON.
