THON 2021 Zoom Backgrounds

We dance…today! THON Weekend is finally upon us, and while we may not all be standing together in the Bryce Jordan Center this weekend, there’s still plenty of opportunities to connect with your orgs, dancers, and THON families.

Perhaps the most popular way to connect this weekend is going to be through Zoom, and we couldn’t let you go into the weekend without perhaps the MOST important THON essential: an excellent virtual background.

If you’re looking for some inspiration, check out some of the best shots from THON below.

Join Dancer Relations On Stage

“Dancer Relations captains, to the stage!”

Personally, the line dance is by far my favorite part of THON, and I can’t wait to learn it in my bedroom this year. If you love the line dance, set it as your background to become one with the Dancer Relations captains.

Join The Total Reveal

A year of fundraising comes down to one big moment: the total reveal. Last year, Penn State students were able to raise more than $11.6 million For The Kids. Relieve this electric moment over and over all weekend leading up to this year’s reveal at 4 p.m. Sunday.

Particpate In The Pep Rally

The Saturday night Pep Rally is one of the most anticipated events of the weekend. Like most things, we really aren’t sure what to expect for the Pep Rally this year (other than a White Out), but you can still support your favorite team via Zoom background.

Be A Surprise Guest Performer

Personally, the last time I felt happy was when Mason Ramsey stepped on stage at the Bryce Jordan Center in 2019. One typical unknown detail for THON is what famous celebrity will perform, but we have some guesses.

Stand With Your Org

Aw, standing with your org-one of the best past times of THON. Many, including myself, are missing seeing my org in-person. Meet up with your org this weekend in a Zoom room and be prepared with your favorite THON picture.
