To add, you're not "voting" for chapters or "picking" them.

Seeing a lot of "I vote no for XYZ" or "Waiting in line to pick my chapters."


No.

what are the options
 
So what are the options for a girl who gets cut from all the chapters and is bidless at the end? (and apparently the school doesnt mandate placement)

The options are to contact the Greek Life office to inquire about COB opportunities, or to wait until the next formal recruitment period and try again, or find something besides Greek life to enjoy.

^^^I don't know how I'm just now seeing your sig. Appreciate that people think I know what I'm talking about. I'm only 27 and I feel like I just yammer on and on like the teachers in the Peanuts cartoons.

To further advance this thread, here's an exhaustive list of the things you are NOT doing when you rank a chapter low. I've read these all from PNMs on here:


Cutting
Picking
Voting
Shopping
Picking the ones I want
Choosing
Rejecting

I like the "selecting back-ups" terminology.

Showing my age here, but they don't have Bid Day mixers anymore? When did that start??

Don't know when, but it is an NPC directive, that Bid Day celebrations are manless.

And certainly beer-less!

Don't know if it was just my campus, but our bid days were manless and beer-less in 1991 when I was a freshman.

I was a freshman in 1986 :eek: so it must have been changed some time between then and 1991

Alcohol is a big no-no, but I think that in my day UCF was flirting with manless Bid Day. I'm pretty sure things haven't changed. The men aren't invited to Bid Day, but a lot of the Bid Day activities take place outside the houses/on the street at UCF. It's like a big block party, and the street belongs to the guys just as much as the girls.

It's not unusual for fraternity guys to wander up and down the street to say high to their girlfriends and sorority friends, and to congratulate them on Bid Day. They're not checking the new members out per se or participating in the activities. Unless Panhellenic banned them from the street, I'm not sure how this could be avoided. The sororities certainly aren't going to boot them off the sidewalk, especially when they're just chatting with their friends. The guys do clear out once the Bid Day activities move indoors, and are not part of the evening celebration when the sororities go to area restaurants/venues.

I was a freshman in 1979 and we definitely had a Bid Day function/mixer with boys and beer! But hey, we were all drinking and driving back then, too!
