Tragic news came from this past weekends THON canning when a carload of students crashed, killing one. Hundreds filled Old Main lawn for a vigil in her honor. Bouquets and bouquets of flowers lined the walls and her sorority sisters shared stories of her fun loving bubbly personality from the glow of candles and teary eyes.
Raise the roof, don’t stop, don’t stop
Diamonds, up top, up top
Together, one family
Magic, the BJC
For the dreamers all year long
We Are! Penn State Strong!
The chorus of the line dance filled my ears as I walked onto the floor of the Bryce Joran Center today, less than 24 hours into the 46 hour Penn State IFC/Panhellenic Dance Marathon.
I started out focused on the entertainment crew, piecing together memories from the weekend on the stage, and pumping the beats to keep everyone moving.
Covered in baby powder from the Slides of Strength, silly string in my hair from a laughing Four Diamonds child and squirt gun spots on my shirt didn’t matter, it was fun to be capturing the energy and excitement.
