Play Jeopardy At The THON Museum In The BJC

Sitting in an alcove outside Section 107 is a chance to take a stroll down memory lane with THON. The dance marathon at Penn State dates back to 1973, and you better believe the museum has its history correct to the very beginning.


You can come check out the history of THON in pictures.


You can come check out articles about THON in the news over the years. Note to the museum: Onward State should be on there.


Ever wonder about the origins of the THON line dance? You can find out at the museum.

When you’re all done checking out the history of THON, play Jeopardy and test your knowledge.
