I hate that Bid Day is on a Monday. That's the first full day of school for us so I won't be able to go down IF my daughter gets a bid :-( From what I have read, it must be quite the sight to see.

I just wrote a rec for a wonderful young lady going to Auburn in the fall. She seems like the kind of woman that will be an incredible asset to any of the sororities at Auburn...wishing her the best during recruitment!

WARRRRR EAGLE!!!!

TNAuburnMom, I concur...I am sad that I may not be able to be in Auburn on Bid Day if my daughter gets a bid as well. :(

I'm trying to decide if I want to make the trip twice in one week. Second time would be solo unless I can find another AU mom in this area who wants to go with me. If not, my son will be there and he knows that as soon as bids are handed out (assuming a favorable end to recruitment), he's to go straight to Tiger Surprise for some goodies!

I'm reading that schedule, thinking about the Alabama heat and humidity, and I'm exhausted. Recruitment not for the faint of heart.

wareagle93 07-02-2012 02:37 PM

Good luck to all the girls that will be going through recruitment! I hope those of you on GC that have daughters going through recruitment will be able to keep us updated with recruitment stories and such. They were a blast to read last year!

thetalady 07-02-2012 02:44 PM

I know it is hot, but I can't imagine rush parties at 8 A.M.!! Lord save me, I have ever been at my best at that time of day. I worked that schedule hard, but I got through my entire 4 yr college career with only ONE 8 am class. :)

If my daughter gets a bid, he may have to make pick up some goodies for me too.

Does anyone know the name of that store that has all the Greek presents upstairs? I was there maybe 5 years ago and loved it! It's near Toomer's Corner.

barbino 07-02-2012 04:05 PM

Having 8AM rush parties is pretty brutal. However, in that heat the morning parties will be much cooler than the pm ones.

At least the pref parties are not too early (they start at 11:30). I hate the idea of an early morning pref party. :)

ACDPhiE 07-02-2012 04:21 PM

Good luck to all of the ladies participating in rush! I will be moving to Auburn this summer and can't wait to observe the "show"!

Would that be Heartstrings?

The name of that store is Wrapsody. It's one of my very favorite places in Auburn!

Good luck to all of the moms! Keep your phones handy, I spent a lot of time that week checking for text messages.

As far as bid day, it's fun but you really only get to spend about an hour with your daughter in the chapter room. I think all of the chapters will assign a bid day buddy to each new pledge, so girls without family won't really feel left out. Also each chapter provides a really nice goodie bag for the pledges so they will have lots of swag even if you don't send something.

I can't believe this is my daughter's last formal recruitment as an active!
