Who Are You Repping at THON 2015?

Just about every student organization spends hours elaborately decorating their very own giant cardboard letters in anticipation of THON weekend. We talked to the students behind the signs to find out why they’re reppin’ at THON 2015.

Alpha Chi Omega – Bailey Mehalick

“Your arms get so tired holding up the letters!” Mehalick said. “It’s okay though, because this is the one weekend of the year we get to come out here for the kids.”
