6 Things Everyone Knows About Dance Marathon
Written by: A Freshman
So even though I’ve never personally completed Dance Marathon at Northwestern, there are a few things that I obviously already know about “Dee-Em.” Here are some guidelines so you can successfully eat, sleep, and breathe Dance Marathon.
Fundraising is Optional
The whole “fundraising” part of DM is totally optional, and people will be really proud of you for just trying.
Raise 400 Dollars to Become DM King
While you are in no way obligated to raise any money, the first person to fundraise this exorbitant sum will be crowned King of Dance Marathon.
Pregaming is a MUST
Here at ~NoRtHwAsTeD~ we pregame everything, and DM is no exception. It takes a lot to make sure you stay turnt for 30 hours, but you are definitely up to the challenge.
DM is Just Like Being In Da Club
DM is like the perfect night out that doesn’t have to end. You don’t have to worry about catching the train or the last shuttle, and that hottie you saw across the room LITERALLY CANNOT LEAVE. DM is basically a VIP pass to the Bone Zone.
It's Just Like Gilmore Girls
Much like the classic episode of Gilmore Girls, NUDM has people wearing fabulous costumes, free coffee, a massive trophy, and a sultry love interest watching your every move from the bleachers.
It Never Stops Being Fun
Everyone knows that DM is a non-stop thrill ride, and though you’ve never stayed awake longer than 18 hours, you’re pretty confident nothing could be more exhilarating.
