Early Saturday morning, Hospitality Committee members took the THON stage in their pink shirts holding water bottles. Calling out the water social, they raised their water bottles and chugged along with the hundreds of people in the Bryce Jordan Jordan Center.
The water social is intended to keep the dancers hydrated, Hospitality Committee member Danielle McDowell said. The dancers do not always drink enough water, only sipping on a water bottle over hours leading to dehydration, McDowell (junior- advertising and public relations) said.
There will be around six water socials during THON about every five hours, hospitality committee member Janelle Stawasz (senior special education) said.
