How To Follow Along With Onward State’s THON 2023 Coverage

THON Weekend is officially here, folks.

As always, Onward State will be inside the Bryce Jordan Center for all 46 hours. We’re just a couple hours away from a few crazy days of coverage.

After an entire year of fundraising and donating, 707 Penn Staters will remain standing (and dancing!) in the BJC for 46 consecutive hours. Over the weekend, your favorite Penn State news source will be back on press row, profiling dancers, strolling the concourse, conducting interviews, and offering live updates about THON 2023’s biggest events.

Here’s how you can stay up to the minute.

Live Blog

Our live blog will be updated frequently over the next 46 hours with anything and everything that goes on in the BJC. All our stories and all our commentary will be housed under the live blog’s umbrella, as well as posted directly to our site.


While @OnwardState will host all our stories, photos, and videos from THON 2023, @THONwardState is your go-to source to all of our minute-by-minute live tweets from standing on Friday to Sunday’s total reveal.

Regardless of which account you’re on the most, you can follow #THON2023 for all sorts of content.


Our Instagram account will offer visual updates and interactive content throughout THON 2023. For pictures, videos, stories, and games, be sure to follow along with @OnwardState!


Don’t have Instagram or Twitter? (We’re looking at you, Mom.) All of our posts, images, and videos will be uploaded to Facebook. Be sure to keep checking, as the content will flow continuously.


Over 46 hours, a lot can go on in the BJC. Who knows what our social media editors and team will get up to in the wee hours of the weekend? Check out our TikTok account to avoid missing out on the requisite tomfoolery.
