Bid day is a magical day and by far one of the most memorable, if not THE most memorable, days of your experience in greek life. It goes by in a blur, you will hardly be able to remember any specifics, but you will never forget the way you felt receiving your bid and meeting women who changed your life forever. So how exactly does bid day go? Well …
Recruitment goes by in a blur of conversations, nervousness, and a general lack of sleep
Bid day FINALLY arrives and you wake up feeling like a kid on Christmas morning
… if that kid was so nervous that she felt like throwing up.
But then you get your bid and you’re so happy you can’t contain yourself
You then run to the house in a herd of squealing girls, feeling happy and also terrified because the possibility of being trampled is currently very real
But you get there safely, and see that the girl you bonded with during all of recruitment is now your sister
The actives are all so happy and excited to meet you and theres usually some form of singing or screaming or dancing and it’s a lot to take in. All you know for sure is that there is glitter absolutely everywhere.
As you look around the room, you see how many new friends you’re going to make
And as overwhelming as it all is, you quickly begin to realize that you’re incredibly blessed to be there. And that’s only the beginning.
