Bid Day represents the end of Ball State's 10 Panhellenic Council (PHC) sororities' recruitment process and
the beginning of sorority life for new members.
More than 1,500
people gathered on the Quad on a September evening to celebrate and
welcome their new members. The atmosphere was filled with cheering, chanting, and
colorful, creative attire.
sororities gathered in large groups while the approximately
500 potential new members waited to receive their bids and reveal which sorority
"Bid Day makes all of our hard work worth it," said Heather
Nawrocki, a senior biology major in the Delta Zeta sorority. "We’re getting 50
new sisters today. Now that I’m one of the oldest sisters, I can teach
the younger girls our values and mentor them."
