THON Passes the 24-Hour Mark (And Then Some)

By now, THON has hit the 24-hour mark and then some, and while many are trying to take in their first dose of BJC excitement, others say they have yet to feel last year’s commotion.

Freshman Giana DiGiorgio had heard about the THON experience through older friends and has taken a mere 3-hour break since yesterday’s start to try to savor the experience.

“I hope I can…I will make myself,” she said about trying to make it to the end.

Celebrating their fourth THON, Joe and Lori Salamack are here to support their daughter, Allison, a senior moraler. They’ve been here the majority of the time yesterday and since 10 a.m. today. This year, though, Lori says things feel less crowded and attributes the less hectic atmosphere to people being potentially discouraged from last year’s experience.

“Last year was so cold, and we sat outside for so long,” she says, explaining this may have affected attendance. “[This year] seems different to me personally.”

But, she says, she is looking forward to tomorrow reveal. “If we get in tomorrow, that would be miraculous.”

Be sure to keep following along on the Live Blog for updates on how the weekend continues to progress as we approach the Pep Rally.
