University of Alabama Recruitment 2020

This year is certainly going to look different from the past, but that won't stop girls from finding their homes!

Schedule:

August 5, 6 & 7: Early Move-In (on-campus only)
Saturday, August 8: Convocation
Saturday, August 8: Open House
Sunday, August 9: Philanthropy Day I
Monday, August 10: Philanthropy Day II
Tuesday, August 11: Philanthropy Day III
Wednesday, August 12: Sisterhood Day I
Thursday, August 13: Sisterhood Day II
Friday, August 14: Sisterhood Day III
Saturday, August 15: Preference Day I
Sunday, August 16: Bid Day

Sadly there will be no "run home" this year and bids will be given via email rather than the traditional envelope. To everyone going through this year I wish y'all good luck!

Trying to picture an email bid card. And I thought that computer punch bid cards were bad!

First I realized I forgot the extra 0 in 2020 so we will be going through recruitment in the Roman Empire but in terms of what is virtual or not ,recruitment is working like this:

Open House: Virtual
Philanthropy: Both days are virtual
Sisterhood: Virtual
Pref Round: Virtual
Bid Day: Bids will be available virtually and by phone. From the Alabama recruitment guide it was not clear if PNMs would be allowed at their new homes or if it'll be socially distanced.

I feel bad about the lack of physical bids, my own envelope bid is a prized possession of mine.

Don't know if I'm dumb or wise beyond my years, but I read 'University of Alabama Recruitment 202' as being the advanced level of recruitment. In other words, 'Recruitment 101' is under normal circumstances, and 'Recruitment 202' is the next level of difficulty due to COVID

Trust me, people can give all the advice about recruitment ever, but nobody could have been prepared for this year! Since many of the panhels at several schools have required intro vids, I've seen some that have done well, especially since the PNMs can do as many takes as needed.

Trying to determine if I'd rather get a "no bid" phone call or a "no bid email." At least you can read the email while you're alone?

I’m confident that I read/heard somewhere that that they will still get bid cards! They will probably get them whenever they get their bidday gear.

AST is now selling official sorority-themed masks and gaiters through our online store. https://ast-emerald-boutique.myshopi...face-coverings

I'm sure there will be many lettered masks as the weeks and recruitments go on

Just talked to PNM going through at Alabama - she has watched 10 “open house” videos with 8 to go. She loved a couple (& even teared up a bit), thought 3 of them were nice but not her cup of tea, and the other 5 were still really great. Even though it is virtual, sounds like a typical first day of recruitment!

Can imagine a story going how the wifi cut out during a round or a sister cutting off during a conversation! It's going to be something else.
