Thanks so much for all the great pictures! I did Thon back when we were encouraged to show up at 2am because the White Building would be fairly empty, and we wanted to be sure the dancers wouldn't feel forgotten. Not a problem these days!! Great pictures! Always a few tear-jerkers in the bunch.

Watching the end on livestream, and of course I tuned in during the Family Hour, the most heart-tugging part.

You seriously just made my year! Thanks so much! I also loved the Phi Kappa Tau picture because they are Phi Mu's partners for THON! I mean this with all my heart---For anyone who thinks we are just all a bunch of football-lovers, THIS is really what Penn State is all about. THIS is what makes me Penn State proud! I encourage everyone to watch the live stream. It will bring tears to your eyes!

ASTalumna06, here's to hoping we make the amount bigger this year! PENN STATE PROUD!
