Anyone concerned about "the apathy of today's undergraduate students" need only venture into the Bryce Jordan Center on THON weekend to learn about dedication, ethical leadership and compassion.
THON is the largest student run philanthropic initiative in the world, having raised $61 million for the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Children's Hospital to fight pediatric cancer. This year they raised over 7.8 million dollars.
The LAUC had two dancers, Lauren Perrotti and Chrissy Boggs. To hear them talk about THON, how they prepared, and what it means to them to participate, listen to them on LAUSRadio episode 3.
The LAUC covered the event on their blog with updates about THON from the Bryce Jordan Center this weekend.
Also, you can read the account Chrissy Boggs gives of the LAUC canning efforts to raise money for THON in Scranton, PA earlier this year.
