Best Of THON 2022 Yik Yak

Infamous social media app Yik Yak is constantly flooded with posts when at a school as large as Penn State. And during a time like THON Weekend, the app is sure to be filled with entertaining Yaks.

To put that into perspective, we dove in and rounded up some of our favorite Yik Yak posts over THON 2022’s 46 hours.

“Heard there’s a rager at the BJC tonight.”

No? Really? I mean I guess I heard something over in that direction.

“Accidentally threw it back while being on the screen at BJC… For The Kids?”

“Who is Chelsea Cutlet and why isn’t she Jojo Siwa?”

Before the surprise musical guest was announced for Friday night’s performance, there were rumors of Jojo Siwa flying into Happy Valley to be the headlining artist. Apparently, Yik Yak really wanted Jojo.

“So humbling to watch the frat boys try to learn a dance.”

Katie Feeney enlisted the help of the BJC to make a TikTok to try and have the most people doing a TikTok dance at once. Unfortunately, not everyone is a natural dancer.

“I just got asked if I knew five brothers in the BJC bathroom by three DChi pledges.”

“Just did the Line Dance all the way home.”

Light the night! Get loud! // Fireworks within the crowd — By the end of this weekend, we’ll be doing the Line Dance in our sleep.

“Why are they called portals? Whenever I say it I feel like I’m in a sci-fi movie.”

“Diamonds UP grades DOWN.”

We hope at least some of you got all your work done before committing to the BJC for 46 hours.

“Everyone talking about the red shirts but c’mon we’ve seen Duo Security already before.”

Just as annoying as logging into LionPATH.

“Nothing gets me more hype than hearing, “Dancerrrrrr relations captains to the stage!'”

“The concession stands at the BJC: ‘Bag alert, major baaaag alert'”

Unfortunately, eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner multiple times in the BJC is not a lifestyle your wallet will like.

“Crazy to see all these athletes without their parkas and backpacks on.”

I think the backpacks would’ve gotten in the way of their flips during Pep Rally. And let’s be honest, men’s fencing went off with their dapper outfits.

“Power through For The Kids and for the new ‘Euphoria’ episode.”

“The worst time to use YikYak is during the final hours of THON because there’s nothing negative to say.”

“Onward State out here proving who THON is really about with all these cheesy articles. Romance this, food that.”

We can still have a good time while providing all-around coverage of THON weekend. We had two of our editors celebrating their six-month anniversary at THON and we gave you the scoop on all the concessions offered in the BJC.

Post-THON Yaks

“The one good thing about THON ending is now I don’t have to survive off of solely overpriced chicken baskets and granola bars.”

“Hope y’all are sparking endless light today.”

“I close my eyes to try to fall asleep and the only thing I hear in my brain is ‘What you know about rolling down in the DEEEEeeeEEEEeeeeep.'”

“THON Line Dance > therapy”

“After seeing THON, I now understand who the red coats Paul Revere was warning us about.”

“Ur obligated to say ‘grab a spin bike get there fast’ every time u use one.”

“Penn State WiFi was at THON all weekend and is skipping class as a result.”
