What To Do This Weekend Besides THON
The seconds are ticking down, folks. THON 2022 is almost here.
While it seems like anything and everything on campus has to do with THON for the next few days, you’d be surprised by how many different things are happening in and around Happy Valley. Here are a few events slated for this weekend to consider checking out if you need a break from dancing.
Penn State Men’s Hockey vs. Minnesota
