[Photo Story] The Best Shirts Of THON 2018

No matter whether it’s a sorority or fraternity, special interest org, or club sport, every THON organization puts their graphic design skills to the test each year to create the best shirt that reflects their organization for members to wear throughout THON Weekend.

In the past few years alone, we’ve seen everything from Harry Potter and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to race cars and the beach, and every design is unique and fun. Here are the standout shirts from THON 2018:

Kappa Kappa Gamma shows off its strength with “The Hulk” themed shirts.
Kappa Delta is catching them all at THON 2018 with these awesome Pokémon shirts.
Phi Kappa Theta is giving us major throwback vibes with these Monsters, Inc. shirts with none other than Mike Wazowski adorned on the front. Don’t be surprised if they change their name to Oozma Kappa soon.
Even R&R captains got in on the fun with shirts this year with a design that is an ode to the Reagen-Bush ’84 days.
THON 2018 couldn’t get enough of the Disney throwbacks, and these Sully shirts from Monsters, Inc. on Pi Beta Phi and Sigma Alpha Epsilon didn’t fail to deliver nostalgia for everyone at THON. We’ll be disappointed if they don’t have a scare-off with Phi Kappa Theta and Whiplash.
Phi Beta Lambda was all party and no business at THON 2018 with these #TrustTheProcess 46ers shirts. Joel Embiid would be proud.
The College of Earth and Mineral Sciences is clearly on board with Penn State men’s basketball’s #ClimbWithUs movement with their mountain-themed shirts. Dance. With. Us.
ATO and Zeta clearly had the force on their side for THON 2018 with these Star Wars themed shirts. I guess this makes pediatric cancer the Empire.
TKE and Eclipse were all on board for #BlastOffBJC with their NASA themed shirts for THON 2018.
Alpha Phi and Sigma Chi were screaming cowabunga with some totally rad tanks dedicated to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
Penn State Lehigh Valley students and supporters are ready to take on the fight against cancer with their #fierce shirts.
Sigma Kappa and Zeta Psi are ready to race full speed to the finale with their race car-themed shirts.
Club Croquet may be in the BJC for THON, but they’ve got beach vibes on the brain with these Tommy Bahama-themed shirts.
We might be a little biased, but Onward State’s shirts are pretty great if we do say so ourselves.

Did we miss your shirt at THON 2018? Feel free to drop us a picture in the comments and share your THON 2018 gear no matter where you’re watching.
