[Photo Story] Our Best Photos From THON 2021

Following a whirlwind 46 hours, THON 2021 has come to a close.

Although we couldn’t be together in the Bryce Jordan Center, our talented visual staff was all over campus and State College to capture the action. See some of our best photos from the weekend below.

Dancers eagerly awaited THON’s official start at 6 p.m. Friday.

Hold this…

There’s nothing like learning the line dance at home. Right, fellas?

Even without its trademark crowd, the BJC looked mighty fine this weekend!

Reading dancer mail is always a sobering experience. Penn State CrossFit’s dancers enjoyed the touching moments early Saturday morning.

Students established a memorial on the HUB Lawn for Ashley Pauls, a former Penn State student and THON volunteer who died recently. A moment of silence was also held for her during THON’s livestream.

Apollo took its pirate-themed hour to the next level!

BJC chicken baskets were a hot commodity all weekend long!

Diamonds up! Say “cheese”!
