Alumni Association Lights It Up

Perhaps the most noticeable of the light-up signs at THON 2014 is the Penn State Alumni Association’s exhibit, standing tall atop section 119.

The bright blue signs (“Penn State Alumni Association” and “Alumni <3 THON”) were debuted at the 46-minute mini-THON at the Hintz Alumni Center, said Lion Ambassadors THON Chair Cole Miller.

But there is more to the Association’s THON involvement than just eye-catching signs, of course. Different chapters of the association host fundraisers in different cities throughout the year, donating money to different THON organizations. It also sponsors the Dance Marathon Alumni Interest Group, which brings THON alumni together to continue raising money even after graduation.

The Association can be found holding down the booth with the help of the Lion Ambassadors and Blue & White Society members, both of which have three dancers.

Miller said there are typically 10-14 Alumni Association members in the booth throughout the day. At night, it’s generally the Ambassadors and Blue & White Society members hanging out.

This certainly isn’t the first year the Association has attended THON, but now the lights have provided an easy place to find them.
