Fraternity And Sorority Themes Of THON 2016

When it comes to THON, greek organizations don’t mess around, especially with their theme. Throughout the concourse Greeks donned brightly colored T-shirts and wear their letters with pride in support of the dancers. Greek themes from years past have included everything including Toy Story, Red Bull, and John Deere. The themes are back and more creative than ever, so we scoured the BJC to show off some of the best Greek themes of THON 2016:

Sigma Chi and Alpha Omicron Pi

Sig Chi and AOPi are out of this world with their galaxy tights and letters painted to look like a starry night sky. The ladies of AOPi all match with hot pink fanny packs.

Lambda Chi Alpha and Alpha Sigma Alpha

This year ASA and LXA chose Monsters Inc. and are wearing shirts featuring Mike Wazowski from the film. The group is scaring cancer out of here.

Delta Tau Delta and Delta Zeta

DTDZ continued the movie theme with “Finding The Cure.”  Their letters are painted in the pattern of a clown fish accompanied by their sea foam green T-shirts.

Pi Beta Phi and Sigma Alpha Epsilon 

“THON Squad,” a spin off the popular children’s movie “Space Jam,” is the theme for Pi Phi and SAE. They two are rocking the “Space Jam” bullseye on their shirts and letters. Even Michael Jordan would be inspired.

Alpha Delta Pi and Theta Delta Chi

There is no missing TDX and ADPi with their bright red lifeguard shirts. With a theta turned into a life preserver and shark bite in the delta, the orgs are helping save lives.

Sigma Delta Tau and Delta Sigma Phi

Pennsylvania’s own Rocky Balboa is featured on the shirts of SDT and DSIG. The black and red is a nice change from the traditionally bright THON attire. The girls even match with white and red beads around their necks.

Phi Sigma Sigma and Delta Upsilon 

Keeping with the Philadelphia theme, Phi Sig and DU swapped the 76ers logo with the THON 46. They showed their pride with matching american flag letters. Once again this year Delta Upsilon’s Delta can been seen from anywhere in the BJC.

Kappa Delta and Beta Sigma Beta

This group is shouting out to their THON child, Andy, on their shirts this year. They kept the the theme kid-friendly with legos and bright red t-shirts.

Pi Lamba Phi 

Pi Lam kept it is simple this year and stuck with an orange and blue theme. Their letters match perfectly with a blue zig-zag pattern and orange outline.

Sigma Kappa and Phi Kappa Psi

Light blue tutus and beads are common throughout the Sig Kap and Phi Psi section of the stands. This year the group went with the popular disney movie “UP!” Their shirts are filled with colorful balloons and they added their own slogan: “Up for 46 hours.”
