Saturday marked the end of Recruitment: Bid Day. The most exciting, most stressful, most joyful day that recruitment has to offer to young women looking for Greek homes around the world. Bid Day is a day of decisions. This day represents each young woman, going through Formal Recruitment, making a choice in regards to where she feels most comfortable. This day is the day where each young woman, going through Formal Recruitment, finds her home within the Greek community.
Our Bid Day was one of the most spectacular experiences in my life. Not only did we acquire 16 new beautiful Sapphires, but we also got the opportunity to watch our Sisterhood grow together. Bid Day makes you appreciate the sisters you have and makes you eager to get to know the sisters you have just gotten. It makes all of the stress and anxiety from Formal Recruitment completely worth it.
All of the long nights drafting up room plans, all of the long crafting sessions (usually involving way too much glitter, and all of the butterflies in your stomach as you wait to meet potential new members… all of the tears and laughs… Everything was worth it because on Bid Day you and your sisterhood become stronger and happier.
I just wanted to take a moment to congratulate our new members and congratulate and sorority who has just gone through Formal Recruitment. You did it!
