Silly Questions Asked at THON

THON Committees can be a great resource for those that need help navigating the BJC during THON weekend. Found throughout the BJC during THON, committee members take time to provide guests with correct information, which can often be a difficult task.

Communications and Rules and Regulations Committee Members get their fair share of baffling questions as well. Here are the gems from those not yet acquainted with THON, as told to me by the committees:

“Where am I? I don’t know where I am.”

“What do the colors mean?”

“Where is my son? He is in the fraternity.”

“How do I get from Gate A to Gate B?”

“Where’s the Pep Rally?”

“How do I get through a portal?”

“Do I have to go outside to go from Gate C to Gate D?”

“Where’s [insert any name here]?”

“Where’s the stage?”

“Can I walk in at 5 a.m.?”

“Is the Pep Rally outside?”

“If I go to my car to get medicine, can I come back in a half-hour?”

“How do the captains wake up?”

“Do you see my daughter? She’s on Rules and Regulations.”

“We have to stand?”

“Do you know Savannah?”

“Are there dancers on the floor?”

“Do you guys serve breakfast to us?”

Now, maybe delirium sets in at odd hours, but you’ve got to admire the composure of COMM and R&R members in answering some of these head-scratchers.

That potential lies as much in the hands of active, informed, and opinionated students as it does in those of the profit-driven athletic departments.
