Brush Up On Your THON Trivia At The THON History Museum

With 43 years of THON in the books prior to this weekend, there’s plenty of history to learn about the evolution of the event and the organization.

Luckily, those who have a chance to be inside the Bryce Jordan Center this weekend can visit the THON History Museum exhibit just a few paces away from the Gate D entrance and just up the steps from the portal to section 119. From its very beginning, to its growth throughout the 80s, 90s, 00s, and recent years, the exhibit has just about all of the THON history imaginable set up. There are even posters that can be signed by visitors and a trivia game.

You can check out the history of the many annual themes over the course of past THON weekends, in addition to some pictures and the fundraising figures for the last few years.

Test your THON trivia knowledge by participating in the THON Jeopardy game:
