Bid Day 2018!

I've mentioned sorority recruitment a few times in the past month here on Chic in Carolina (you can read my life update here as well as see what I wore for recruitment in this post) and the best part of recruitment week is Bid Day! Recruitment is a crazy, emotional, sleep-deprived week for everyone involved but it's so worth it at Bid Day when a fabulous new member class comes running down the hill to you!

As y'all probably know by now, I am a Kappa Alpha Theta at Clemson University in South Carolina. I am currently a sophomore so this was my first year on the "other side" of the process as a sister (you can read about my freshman bid day here and see my recruitment outfits as a PNM here).

Bid Day is a super fun day as we get all decked out in our theme- think face paint, tutus, and more glitter than you can imagine! Our theme this year was "The Greatest Sisterhood on Earth" so a circus theme, which turned out so cute as we all wore bright colors to welcome home all of our sweet new members!







One of the girls in my chapter made this super fun Bid Day video, which perfectly represents all the excitement that is a Theta Bid Day!


Are you in a sorority? If so, how was your bid day? Let me know in the comments!

  3. That looks like so much fun! I don't live the US so I don't understand much about sororities, but it's definitely something I wish Chilean colleges would start doing.

  9. What a fun day! We are in Columbia, but not from here, so neither gamecocks or clemson fans... Everything is starting to get wild in South Carolina!
