Alpha Delta Pi Recruitment & Bid Day 2014!

      I feel like a free woman again! Sorority recruitment is officially over! Our Bid Day was yesterday, and my chapter welcomed home 15 beautiful new Alphas (what we call our new members :-) ). I go to a small college so having a pledge class of 15 is excellent numbers for us! I am so proud of how well my chapter did during recruitment. This was my first time being apart of a sorority through recruitment, as just a year ago I joined ADPi. All of the recruitment practices and preparation was hands down one of the most stressful things I have ever gone through in my life!! Hence why my poor blog has been very neglected lately. I have barely had time to do balance my homework, internship, and all of my sorority commitments. And I took some babysitting jobs in the little free time that I did have, so I felt very over-extended! But everything was 100% worth it. Once recruitment started it was a lot of fun! Our Formal Recruitment has three rounds (Wednesday-Friday), and then Bid Day was on Saturday. I can't wait to share all of my pictures with y'all! :-)

The reason I had cowboy boots on during second night! ;-) 

     The first round of recruitment focussed on sisterhood, the second on our philanthropy, which is the Ronald McDonald House, and the third round was preference night (which is the most formal).

     And then Saturday was Bid Day, which this year was America Themed!

ADPi Juniors!

Everyone right before we welcomed our Alphas home! 

     I got the privilege of shirting an Alpha and welcoming her home!! :-)

All of our sweet Alphas!
Our whole chapter!! Yay for silly pictures. :-)

      Lastly, here is a little video showing all of Bid Day that our PR chair just made! It really captures not only the spirit of the day, but the whole spirit of our sisterhood. :-)

     I am so blessed to be apart of the First and Finest sorority! I have 47 beautiful sisters and a special Greek home on campus. I can't wait to get to know our new members more during the rest of this semester!

      But now that recruitment and Bid Day have finished, this means that I can finally spend more time on my blog again! ;-) Be expecting more regular posts from me, and also for me to be a more active member of the blogging community again. I am super pumped to be going to a blogging meet-up hosted by two of my favorite fashion bloggers at a boutique here in Charlotte this coming week! Blogging world- it is GOOD to be back!

  1. Love this! We welcomed home an Alpha class of 130 girls... needless to say our recruitments are very different! Pi love! <>

  2. Congratulations on all your new bids! Are you taking a little this fall? I took mine last year and as hectic as it was it was definitely one of the best things I've ever done!

  3. Congrats on the new pledge class. :) Panhellenic love from a DZ Alumna. This year's pledge class was 32 for our chapter, so we are a smaller greek life school.
