Penn Staters Disappointed, Hopeful For Virtual THON 2021

Well folks, it was bound to happen eventually. THON announced Friday that THON 2021 would take place virtually in February due to the coronavirus pandemic.

After the Big Ten’s fall sports were postponed earlier this week, THON’s news didn’t come as much of a shock. Still, Penn Staters took to Twitter to express their feelings now that THON Weekend is going virtual.

For some, there were no words. Broken hearts and sad faces served to express how folks felt.

Many understood the logic behind the cancellation, given that a large-scale event probably wouldn’t be possible under current circumstances.

Many expressed hope for THON’s virtual celebration and are looking forward to the event.

Although this year’s event will be quite different from what we’re used to, some folks are already brainstorming ideas to bring the spirit of THON online.
