‘Bid Day’ brings new girls, glitter to Greek Row

Greek Row was a blur of pinks, blues and greens last weekend as fall sorority bid day festivities commenced.

Sorority hopefuls spent the day confronting a mix of emotions from wondering if they were going to get an offer to join their preferred sorori-
ty to running towards their members of their new group.

Freshman Alex Zelaya said she wasn’t sure what to feel on bid day.

“At frst, I was super nervous, but when we started running down to the houses, I was so excited and ready to fnd my phi pal,” Zelaya said, who received a bid from Phi Mu.

While 144 girls participated in the beginning stages of rush week, only 125 girls were given bids to join sororities, according to Panhellenic Advisor Frantz Salomon.

Zelaya said that she was lucky to be one of them.

“I was literally about to cry when I got my bid,” Zelaya said. “From the moment I stepped into the house, I knew it was my home.”

Zelaya said that while recruitment was nerve wracking, she was happy with the payoff.

“[Rush week] was worth it, and I would do it all over again because I got to meet so many new people. It was just so easy to bond with other people because you were going through the same thing they were.”
