Attending Your First THON As A Dancer: Expectations vs. Reality
THON is finally upon us, folks. While some students have fond memories of the past few THON weekends, others may be attending for the first time. One of our staffers, Carly Weiss, was sick last year and couldn’t go to THON. This year, she’ll attend THON for the first time — and she’s dancing.
We set up an expectations vs. reality to document her journey through THON. We’ll update this throughout the weekend after each category takes place to see how the reality compares. For now, here are Carly’s expectations.
Carly is especially excited about the Human Tunnel, although she knows a little on what to expect from videos of past events. She’ll wear a GoPro for this, so we’ll upload the video here when the time comes.
The Line Dance
While Carly hopes her family and her org will send her dancer mail, she’s even more excited about seeing her mom, her sister, and people from her organization on the floor to visit her.

The Final Four
Carly said the total reveal is the “ultimate goosebumps moment” but she thinks she’ll feel satisfied knowing she made a difference no matter what the total is.
