If You THON It, You Should Put A Ring On It
As most of us are listening to the line dance, one THON dancer is now hearing wedding bells.
Sarah Collier, a senior studying electrical engineering, is dancing for Society of Women Engineers (SWE) after holding leadership positions and being named their fundraising director this year. When she was picked to dance in November, her boyfriend wanted to make this a THON she would never forget.
Jace Toner, a graduate of Penn College, is enlisted in the military and wanted to propose to Sarah in a special way before he is deployed.
In the early hours on Saturday of THON 2014, all of the members of SWE stood tall with giant posters that spelled out “Sarah, will you marry me?”
The Bryce Jordan Center cheered around them, as family members of both Sarah and Jace looked on, and Jace got down on one knee. Sarah said yes!
Megan Kraus, a former SWE dancer noted that Sarah is passionate about SWE and does so much for the Roth and Sullivan families. Kraus said that the proposal was a collective group effort, and the hardest part was keeping it all a secret.
Congratulations, Sarah and Jace!

Do you yearn for cigarette ash-dusted grilled cheeses from “quintessential shithole” Grillers? Or a night out at G-Man with your old frat bros? Or have evenings of drinking felt incomplete ever since Canyon moved across Beaver and got rid of its sticky blue picnic tables?
It’s hard not to draw parallels between this year’s lacrosse team and a couple other Nittany Lion teams that have used the City of Brotherly Love as a launching pad to sustained success.
