100 Days 'til THON is university-wide celebration that encourages student involvement and further generates excitement for THON on every campus across the commonwealth. It takes place each year in early November and marks the final 100 day count down to THON Weekend. On the University Park campus, student performances such as dance troupes and singing groups take place in the student union building affectionately known as the HUB. The day also features a family speaker around noon. Each THON Captain Committee organizes and runs a both on the first floor of the HUB with activities for student like THON Trivia and making mail for dancers. Other committees gather exciting in East Halls and other various dining commons around campus. The day's events usually runs from 11am to 4pm and the excitement culminates in a silent rave and group photo taken on Old Main lawn. All are welcome!
THON’s Got Talent is a talent show where the top five contestants will perform at 100 days 'till THON and the top three contestants will perform during THON weekend! The auditions must be one minute long and can have one to four contestants. The acts can range from singing, dancing or anything else that is FTK! This is an opportunity for the Penn State Community to be a part of THON in a new innovative way.
If the contestants are using music for the talent they must bring it to the audition in MP3 form. If the contestants need to use props for their talent, they must e-mail a list of the props to FTKgottalent@THON.org by Monday, October 15th @ 5pm.
Anyone who is a full or part-time undergraduate student at Penn State can participate!
