Warming up for Thon with ‘color wars’
Thon Color Wars is an annual event in which dancers for the Interfraternity/Panhellenic Council Dance Marathon meet their moralers and get acquainted with the energy that Thon weekend brings.
This year, dancers and moralers were split into three groups (red, green and blue) based on their morale captain, and competed in a series of three challenges for points. More events occur during Thon weekend, and those who accrue the most points wins the Color Wars trophy at the conclusion of Thon.
