THON 2020: Your Guide To The BJC Concourse

It’s that time of year again, folks. THON. And whether you’re here at the Bryce Jordan Center working shifts for your committee, hanging out in the stands, or just straight vibing, you’ll likely complete more laps around the arena’s concourse than you can count.

At this time, some notable THON staples, including its beloved grilled cheese stand, aren’t on the concourse. Others, like cone-shaped pizza, have moved from stand-alone carts to the main food stands.
