Bid Day was one of the most exciting days for me so far in Phi Beta Chi! Rush week in general was so much fun, but bid day was the cherry on top! After getting to know the girls in my pledge class a little bit during recruitment week, it was so great to finally know who my sisters would be in the future! Once we all met at the Old Well and couldn’t contain our happiness anymore, we finally received our bids! As a group, we then walked to the house where we were greeted with screams of happiness and loud chanting. I remember rushing over the street to greet my new sisters and being totally overwhelmed with so much happiness!
My bid day buddy was the beautiful Bailey Brislin, and I was so happy to have her that day. The rest of the night was like a blur to me. I remember taking so many pictures with people who I didn’t really know at the time, but I was fine with it because I knew that they loved me and I loved them. My lovely white rose sister is Hailey Truitt. Even after bid day, she has helped me adjust to sorority life and all that it entails. I had the best bid day experience personally.
Some of the girls I met on bid day have become some of my best friends in the sorority. Luckily, everyone in Phi Beta Chi has welcomed me with open arms. Never once have I felt out-of-place or that I did not belong. I am so blessed to call Phi Beta Chi my home at Carolina!
