With not a lot of time remaining, the most anticipated part of THON -- besides the reveal of the final total raised -- is Family Hour.
Dancers know the end is near when the Four Diamonds families take the stage and share their stories.
Mark Rodas (sophomore–business management) said Family Hour is the most emotional part of the THON experience. The Phi Sigma Kappa member added that his organization uses it as inspiration for next year’s THON.
“[Family Hour] is the reason why we work all year on this,” Rodas said.
Delta Chi member Alec Shelowitz said he is most interested to hear the personal stories that will be told. Shelowitz said this will be the first THON where he will see the hour in person.
Others said they use the hour as a bonding experience.
