Fraternity And Sorority Themes at THON 2018

Every year, Greek organizations have a new theme — usually picked by the organization’s THON child. This year is no different. Greek orgs around the Bryce Jordan Center can be found in matching tanks bouncing uniquely decorated letters matching their chosen theme. We scoured the BJC to find the best of THON 2018.

Alpha Chi Omega and Sigma Pi:

The ladies of A Chi O are rocking neon tie-dye to support their 70s theme. Their ombre letters make their section easy to spot even from press row all the way across the BJC. Groovy.

Delta Chi and Kappa Kappa Gamma:

Members of D Chi and KKG are sporting bright green in front of their light up letters. Their Hulk theme was chosen by their THON child, Owen. The greek pair are doing everything the can to smash out cancer this THON.

Alpha Phi and Sigma Chi:

Alpha Phi and Sig Chi are also dressed in green. Instead of Hulk, though, this pair is serious about their ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ theme. Obviously real heroes wear shells…obviously.

Gamma Phi Beta and Acacia:

70s theme is a popular one at THON this year. Gamma Phi and Acacia stand in front of psychedelic letters, the theme also chosen by their THON child.  GammAcacia is groovin’ for the kids.

Lambda Chi and Alpha Sigma Alpha:

Lambda Chi and ASA chose a space theme for this year’s THON. Their galaxy letters and leggings are out of this world (haha…).

Zeta Tau Alpha and Alpha Tau Omega:

On that note, members of ATO and Zeta are sticking with a Star Wars theme this year. Their super artistic letters are one of the most detailed we’ve seen in the BJC today. Are your arms tired from holding those letters yet?

Sigma Kappa and Zeta Psi:

Sig Kap and Zeta Psi’s cars theme with flamed letters are a bright spot in section 105. This is a theme any THON child would love.
