Bryce Jordan Center Reaches Capacity Ahead Of THON Pep Rally

If you wanted to attend tonight’s Pep Rally, you better have gotten in line a while ago. The official THON Twitter account announced that the Bryce Jordan Center had reached capacity for the time being, two hours before the Pep Rally begins.

This is the third year in a row that the Bryce Jordan Center has hit capacity in anticipation of the pep rally.

Those still wishing to get into THON can pick up a wrist band and get in a virtual line based on the number on your wrist band. According to THON’s website, wristbands will still be available outside the BJC at will call. Once you receive your wristband, you can text Text “BJC” to 50555 or go to to check your spot in line. If your number is within the range provided, you will have 45 minutes to get back to the BJC.

We’ll update you when THON re-opens its doors, but if the past is any indicator, your best bet is is likely to get comfortable at home and follow along with the THON livestream and our coverage tonight, and try again in the morning for the Final Four.
