5 Reasons Bid Day Is The Best Day

It's the most exciting day of the year by far.

5 Reasons Bid Day Is The Best Day
Catherine Stidom

Before joining a sorority myself, I remember seeing bid day pictures of girls all over the internet completely decked out in glitter, face paint and adorable t-shirts. I always wondered why exactly these girls did those things, and it wasn't until I joined a sorority myself that I realized why bid day really is the best day. People always look so happy on bid day, and I just really wanted to be a part of it. After experiencing two years worth of bid days now, I thought it would be a good idea to share my reasons for why I think bid day is the best day:


I cannot stress enough how happy glitter makes me. I would come to class every day decked out in glitter if I could. On bid day, everyone is covered in glitter and there is tons of it. My bedroom floor is going to be covered in glitter for at least a week after this year's bid day festivities, and I'm not even mad about it.

2. Face Paint

It's not every day that you get to paint your friend's faces, so on bid day, you have to take full advantage of it.

3. Matching Outfits

First of all, cute T-shirts make me happy anyway, but the fact that you get to wear cute matching shirts with all of your sisters makes it even better.

4. Fun Themes

No matter what the theme is, you have to go all out for bid day. It's so fun getting to make cute accessories and getting all dressed up for the most exciting day of the year.

And finally, after tons of sleepless nights, hard work and anticipation...

5. Getting To Meet All Of Your New Sisters!

The most exciting element of all is getting to meet your new sisters and showing them what your organization is all about. Bid day is all about making these women feel welcome in your chapter and welcoming them in with open arms. It makes me so happy to be able to meet new people that share the same values and goals as I do, and I cannot wait to get to know them all better.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.
