Taking a step into HuskyTHON means entering a huge room thick with dancers and jam-packed with palatable, contagious emotion. On Saturday through Sunday, UConn’s famous, annual 18-hour dance marathon changed the lives of not only the children it fundraised for, but of everyone involved.
Although Huskython is still 101 days away as of noon on Wednesday, Nov. 14, the long wait did not stop Student Union Board of Governors (SUBOG) President Adam Sherif and Vice President of Finance for SUBOG Margot Astorino from speaking excitedly about SUBOG’s involvement in the 2019 dance marathon. This year, Sherif and Astorino plan to use SUBOG’s platform to support Huskython and to expose SUBOG’s large following to the event and the good that it does.
Discounting the philanthropic efforts put into HuskyTHON by the Greek community induces a sense of discouragement among its members rather than providing them with tools to run their organizations. The approach taken by Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life (OFSL) was ineffective in helping develop fraternities and sororities on campus.
