Each sorority and fraternity chapter will host opportunities each night of Rush Week for prospective new members to meet active members, fellowship, have fun, ask questions, and become familiar with the distinctive characteristics of each chapter. After each round of activities, prospective new members will have a better idea with which chapters they feel the best fit. Once all Rush activities have concluded, each chapter will select which Rush participants with whom they would like to offer bids for membership. This selection process by active chapter members and chapter advisors is conducted through sincere peer evaluation, reflective discussion, and fervent prayerful consideration. Once each sorority and fraternity has made their selections for membership bids, the Bid List is submitted to the Director of Student Services Office for final review, approval, and processing.
On Bid Day, each new student bid recipient will be provided with a Bid Card indicating the chapter(s) that has offered the student a bid for sorority or fraternity membership. Each student will indicate if he or she accepts or declines their bid. Students accepting chapter bids are then presented to their new fraternity brothers or sorority sisters at Bid Day festivities on the last day of Rush. This presentation marks the beginning of the student’s affiliation with his or her Greek chapter as the student moves from prospective new member to Pledge.
