On Sept. 10 Northern Kentucky University’s Student Union echoed with chatter and chants coming from the first floor consumed by women affiliated with Greek Life preparing for annual bid day.

Prior to the start of the bid day festivities, women reminisced on their recruitment experiences.
Tina Hoesl, a senior public relations major, said she and Kaity Galanos, junior journalism major, were in charge of Delta Gamma’s recruitment and enjoyed seeing all of their plans put into action.

Kelsey Rodriguez, a junior and member of Phi Sigma Sigma, said she enjoyed getting to meet all of the new ladies that want to find a family within a sorority.
Sarah Napier, junior communication major and member of Theta Phi Alpha, said, “My favorite night is the first night of recruitment because everyone doesn’t know anyone yet and the connections made are more genuine.”

Chanell Karr, a junior public relations major, said “The best experience I’ve had going through recruitment this fall is just being able to meet women going through the process as well and then just making new connections and relationships with the already Greek women.”

Emily Ries, sophomore communication studies major, who went through formal recruitment in fall 2011, participated in the Chi Omega recruitment process, as Karr did, and decided to go through formal fall recruitment again this year. Ries said her favorite night of recruitment was preference night as well because, “you really get to see the sororities and they put everything out on the line.”

After opening their bids, new members lined up outside near the Griffin Hall lawn with their corresponding sororities. They were then released all at once to meet their new sisters on the lawn.

Student Life Assistant Director Kim Vance said most sororities met their recruitment quota of 45 women.
An assortment of colored balloons floated underneath the blue sky as new members ran, tackled and embraced their sorority sisters. NKU’ s formal fall recruitment came to a roaring close with bid day.

Check out all the fun from this year’s bid day!
