How To Follow Onward State’s THON 2022 Coverage

Today, we dance For The Kids.

That’s right! THON Weekend is finally back at the Bryce Jordan Center, and we’re ready to get rolling across a wild few days of coverage.

A year’s worth of fundraising will culminate as 667 Penn State students (and a few alumni) will stand and dance in the BJC for 46 straight hours. Following a virtual event last year, THON is finally back.

This year, dear readers, Onward State is back on press row after covering last year’s THON in our dorm rooms. Now, we’re all set to profile dancers, interview volunteers, cover the concourse, and provide up-to-the-minute coverage of THON 2022.

Live Blog

Over the next 40-odd hours, we’ll update this blog post with everything that happens this weekend. Our live blog is your home for all things Onward State during THON Weekend.


Over at @OnwardState, we’ll share all our stories, pictures, and videos from THON 2022.

Meanwhile, we’ll use @THONwardState to live-tweet the event, so check back in for minute-by-minute updates from Friday night through Sunday’s THON total reveal.

No matter which feed you’re scrolling through, follow #THON2022 to find all of our content.
