What Bid Day Is All About

The end of one chapter, to the beginning with a new chapter — a sorority chapter.

What Bid Day Is All About
Sorority Sugar

It's that time.

The moment you've been waiting for since you have entered college.

It's been days, but feels like weeks.

The anticipation is KILLING you.

The FINAL day of recruitment.

It's Bid Day.

To make a long story short, Bid Day is the round up of the recruitment process in which the potential new members seeking to find a Greek home will receive a bid card from the sorority that wants them. This marks the end of being just another ordinary college student and the beginning of your time as a new member of the sorority you join. Bid Day is the day when sororities (and fraternities) welcome their new members into their chapter. It's a time of celebration for each chapter and a very special celebration for the new members. This day full of festivities celebrates not only welcoming of new members but the countless hours the chapter has put into making recruitment memorable.

You will meet other new members on this day, and while you may be tired and slightly overwhelmed, it is the mark of a new life journey!

Now, what is so cool about Bid Day?

1. It is the day in which you receive your bid card, and can go crazy with excitement now that you have found where you were meant to be!

2. You have instant best friends that will be in your life forever.

3. You get to represent your sorority by wearing your letters now!

4. There's hella food.

5. You get a chance to meet those on the Executive Board and your chapter's President! Don't be afraid of her though because she is actually really chill.

6. You get to take pictures until your face goes numb.

7. You get to see what your chapter is all about and how being in a sisterhood has changed the lives of each girl in the room.

8. You play games.

9. Finally, the stress disappears and the fun for the next 4 years begins. You found your home. This time in your life is what you make of it.

Bid Day is definitely as fun as it sounds and is portrayed to be. While it is fun and games, you must remember that you now represent your chapter. As my own chapter always says, "You are always in your letters." Make your Bid Day as memorable and exciting as you can, because you are only a new member once!

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

Were all teenagers and twenty-somethings bingeing the latest "To All The Boys: Always and Forever" last night with all of their friends on their basement TV? Nope? Just me? Oh, how I doubt that.

I have been excited for this movie ever since I saw the NYC skyline in the trailer that was released earlier this year. I'm a sucker for any movie or TV show that takes place in the Big Apple.

Every single one of us has a story.

I don't say that to be cliché. I don't say that to give you a false sense of encouragement. I say that to be honest. I say that to be real.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

It's Important To Remind Yourself To Be Open-Minded And Embrace All Life Has To Offer

Why should you be open-minded when it is so easy to be close-minded?


Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded. I want to encourage everyone to look at something with an unbiased and unfazed point of view. I oftentimes struggle with this myself.
