After a week of spring recruitment, Marshall University sororities welcomed their new members on Bid Day.

Sororities welcomed new members Sunday and made a day of it by celebrating. On Bid Day, potential new members got a call and were told they received a bid from a sorority. After getting the call, they went to the Memorial Student Center to receive and sign their bids from their chosen sorority. Some girls may have gotten more than one bid, but were only allowed to sign one bid to one sorority. A few hours later, the ladies were taken to their sorority’s house or suite to surprise the sorority. The new members then celebrated with their new sorority and got their first sorority shirt. After, all the sororities met and chanted their sorority chants at the Student Center. A slideshow was shown of all the fun there was throughout the week of recruitment parties and pictures of each new member along with the name of the sorority they joined.

There were 25 new members welcomed to the Sorority Greek Community.

“Spring recruitment went very well, the sororities all brought in great women,” Megan Kelly, Greek advisor, said. “Anytime we can bring new members into the Greek community is a success!”

Kelly said she loves seeing each chapter grow every semester.

Spring recruitment was informal compared to fall recruitment.

Sigma Sigma Sigma and Alpha Chi Omega hit their total for Bid Day and Alpha Xi Delta and Delta Zeta will continue to have recruitment parties. Alpha Chi Omega took six new members, Alpha Xi Delta took three, Delta Zeta took eight and Sigma Sigma Sigma took eight.

“I am very pleased with spring Bid Day. We welcomed 25 amazing new members into our growing Greek community,” Abbi Woods, panhellenic recruitment executive, said. “Now we are excited for an even bigger fall recruitment,” Woods said.
