The overall purpose of the piece is to stimulate conversation on how canning may continue in the future as a THON tradition, instead of being abolished altogether. This is a relevant issue in that the “last” canning weekend ever was a few weeks ago, and while many first-year students enjoyed their first exposure to the event, many THON veterans were lamenting the fact that it was the last time students at the university would have this unique opportunity.…
