Waking up on Bid Day felt like waking up on Christmas. Today was the day! I was finally going to find my home! When I got to the student center it was buzzing with girls waiting to receive their bids. We separated into our Rho Gamma groups, where we would be called one at a time to open our bids. It seemed like it took forever for them to call my name, but it finally happened! My rho gamma handed me my bid, and as soon as I saw the color of my name on the envelope, I knew who the bid was from. It was Top Thrill Dragster. My rho gammas knew it wasn’t my first choice, but they all encouraged me to give them a chance. One of my rho gammas told me that the Dragsters saw me in leadership positions in their chapter, and there were already a couple of girls who wanted me as a little. So I accepted my bid to Top Thrill Dragster, because these are the girls who see something in me that I don’t. These are the girls who want me to wear their letters. I’d been through recruitment twice, and now I was being invited to join a wonderful sisterhood, which was all I wanted both this year and the year before. Even if I wasn’t in love with Top Thrill Dragster right then, I had time to fall in love with them and I couldn’t wait for that to happen. So when it was time for everyone to run to their new homes, I happily ran to the beautiful sisters of……


I was greeted with countless hugs and I shed some happy tears. And it took me approximately 30 minutes to fall in love with Tri Sig and my new sisters. As soon as I got to the house for bid day festivities, I knew that I was where I belonged. I was finally home. <3

Recruitment week was absolutely exhausting for me. I was sick, sleep deprived, and crazy emotional, but I can already tell that this was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason, and I was cut from the chapters I was initially in love with so that I could find my home in Sigma. We have a sisterhood event tonight and I'm getting my first block letters soon! I'm so excited to meet all of these girls and I'm so happy I sailed home.

Thank you for reading! Also if anyone wants to know what school I go to feel free to PM me

That's wonderful, and what a great ending. I have to say you rose above some challenges in recruitment and was able to look beyond the tent talk. Congrats to you and your new sisters!

Congratulations. I met my first (and only) Tri-Sigma ever a few years ago, and she is such a wonderful lady she shines brightly onto the rest of you.

Wishing you much joy as a collegiate member and even more as an alumna.

Welcome to Tri Sigma! I was initiated in 1993 and have loved my time in Sigma! I actually just got back from an impromptu dinner with another alum from my chapter who was in school ten years after me!

Because I'm curious, who was Millennium Force? You don't have to say if you don't want to, but I figured it couldn't hurt to ask!
I believe in the values of friendship and fidelity to purpose
