Most Penn Staters are familiar with THON, a completely student-run philanthropy committed to enhancing the lives of children and families impacted by childhood cancer. The organization’s efforts culminate each year with a 46-hour dance marathon in the Bryce Jordan Center at University Park, to which each participating Penn State campus sends dancers as representatives.
On Jan. 31, Penn State Brandywine’s gymnasium was converted into a roller rink as the campus paid homage to its roots. Penn State Delaware County opened in the fall of 1967 in temporary space underneath a roller skating rink in Chester. It remained there until late 1970, when the Main Building was completed at the current location in Middletown Township, about 10 miles away.

In August 2017, more than 200 Penn State Brandywine students will move into the campus’s new residence hall. In addition to providing students with space, comfort and social opportunities, the residence hall and the new student union will be LEED-certified buildings.
