New Bids on the Block

Yesterday was my final bid day as a member of ADPi! The best was definitely saved for last, but first... let's take a trip down memory lane.

Drafting the Finest - Bid Day 2013 (Freshman year!)

Happy New Year - Bid Day 2014

A Whole New World - Bid Day 2015

...and finally...

New Bids on the Block - Bid Day 2016 (Senior year!!)

This bid day was honestly so much fun. Being a senior on bid day is great too because you have no real responsibilities, so you can show up and cheer and dance your heart out. Which is, unsurprisingly, exactly what I did. (My lack of voice can prove it, too.)

As much as I loved this jean jacket, it was 100 degrees outside so it stayed on only for pictures ;)

My grand little and I waiting for our missing family member to come home! She was a pi chi this year. We're also searching high and low for the perfect addition to the fam... AKA to make me a great grand-big!

Our party was at a local concert venue and it was honestly amazing. Tons of neon lights and slap-bracelets and ring pops. I don't think I've ever been sweatier but I danced the afternoon away and had so much fun with all of our members, old and new.

One of the things I'm most thankful for during my time as a member of ADPi have been the friendships coming from the oddest places. My friend Alex, pictured above, is best friends with my cousin! They went to high school together, and my cousin and my aunt were convinced that we would not be in the same sorority. Surprise! Thankfully, we've gotten less awkward throughout the years.

I feel like bid day is the official start to the semester. We welcomed 114 Alphas home yesterday and I can't wait to see them learn and grow in sisterhood together for the next few months!


  1. Boom Boom! Congrats on your last Bid Day. It's definitely bittersweet.

    Pi Love!

  2. Congrats on your last year!!! I hope it full of laughs and lots of fun!

  3. We don't have sororities where I'm from, but bid day looks fun! Congrats on your last bid day, hope you had tons of fun! x

  4. This is so sweet! One of my roommates in college is an ADPi! Enjoy your last year!

  5. I'm sure it was a really bittersweet feeling, but it must be great to know you're going to pass the baton to a whole new group of lovely ladies! Hope you have a lovely senior year!

  10. Ahhh your recruitment is so early! My chapter always does theirs in late September. Seems like you enjoyed every moment of your final Bid Day- exactly the way it should be! Now go and make lots of fun memories this year! Does your chapter do Mallard Ball?

    xoxo and Pi Love,


    1. We do Mallard Ball!! Usually around late October or early November... I'm sure it will get a mention on here at some point!

  11. Enjoy it while it lasts!!

  14. We don't have sororities here but I always thought they sounded so much fun.

  15. BOOM BOOM! Welcome home to your beautiful new Alphas! I'm going through such FOMO since I just graduated and won't be there to welcome our new Alphas in two weeks!!!

    Pi love,
