Rush is Over, Now Its Time to Run Home to Your New Sorority
Sunday will be a day to remember for many ladies at the University of Alabama. It’s the day they find out which sorority they will be a new member of.
The process started with Rush Week, when all applicants visited the open houses held by the sororities and pledged to the ones they would want to be a part of. The selection process will end this Sunday, which is bid day.
Bid day will start with all the applicants congregating inside Bryant-Denny Stadium. Each girl will be handed an envelope which they are told to sit on until they are instructed to open it. When it's time, all the girls will open their envelopes at the same time and “run home.”
When they “run home,” they are literally running from Bryant-Denny to their new Greek home.
The week leading up to bid day is a mix of Philanthropy and sisterhood days. The University of Alabama Division of Student Life website shows that the Fraternity and Sorority members on campus make up 36% of the undergrad population on campus. The University of Alabama has by far the most prominent Greek population in the nation.
