Gate A Officially Opens For THON 2016

Gate A officially opened at 4:00 p.m. for spectators to enter the Bryce Jordan Center and pack the stands.

Committee members worked quickly to scan spectators in after many of them waited several hours outside before gaining admittance. As per the usual, the first spectators who were able to enter sprinted inside to get prime spots in the lower bowl of the BJC.

Within minutes, the lower level began to fill up with fraternities, sororities, and special interest organizations staking their claim on the best spots.

Over the past few years, THON has attempted to optimize the wristband system so that they can accurately monitor how many people are in the BJC at any given time. Those looking to enter the BJC later this week can receive a wristband between Gates A and B.

Be sure to follow @THONward State throughout the weekend for more updates from the BJC.
