Update From the Floor: Dancer Kevin Marnatti’s THON Experience

The night is still young here at the Bryce Jordan Center, as THON rages on into the morning. I was able to take the floor and talk to a few dancers including senior Kevin Marnatti.

Marnatti is a risk management/actuarial science major and  a brother of Beta Theta Phi. As a senior, Marnatti is really taking in the whole dancing experience.

“It’s really something I’ve wanted to do since I was a freshman, and to be able to do this now is so special. It has really been an honor to finally be selected as a dancer.” Marnatti said.

He told me that he wasn’t really involved in THON when he first arrived on campus as a freshman, but his time spent canning in various towns and writing thonvelopes really opened his eyes to how amazing THON really is.

“This is a part of THON that will stick with me for the rest of my life, and I want to live every single moment of it.” Marnatti said.

For me as a freshman, it was great to talk to somebody who has experienced so much though THON over the years here at Penn State. Marnatti described the “magic of THON” that he wants to soak up as much as possible for the rest of the weekend. It’s stories like these that show how special THON is.
