I remember a while back they did the rho gamma reveal on instagram live, and then the bids were opened.

In the midst of tik tok activity, there were a decent amount of people dropping out of recruitment, and similar to when Bama recruitment was all the buzz, alumni/advisors/consultants were explaining everything in a much more logistical manner. I don't wanna imagine a world where social media was huge when bed rush was still a thing at IU.

Go look at some of the older IU Recruitment threads on here. There were some massive trainwrecks!

I did see the rush experience of someone who went through and made it back in the 96. I did see some thread recommendations at the bottom of this, might take a look at them.

So I checked instagram and 1,500 bids have been given out. PNMs should be opening their bids up soon.

I only come to GC around IU recruitment time but maybe one of these days I'll share my story from 2006. Bed rush was so brutal and gross. There were dozens or maybe even hundreds of girls who went to 3 preference parties and ended up with no bid. I remember the sweetest girl on my floor freshman year who was "cross-cut". It was unfair to Rho Gammas as well having to console multiple heartbroken PNMs. I didn't even understand that this was NOT the normal process for years. Now when I hear on TikTok "dropped from all" they mean "dropped from all of my favorites" and I just get so angry.

In any event, hoping for good outcomes for everyone!

That's what I sensed when I'd watch these videos of PNMs saying "I dropped." And I doubt it was a matter of grades or a genuine reputation issue, which is super rare. I did hear that it was extremely cold the whole week (like much of the midwest, real feels were in the negatives )

Per IU Panhellenic's Instagram post, around 1,500 women accepted bids this year.

Recruitment at this time of year must be brutal! Someone tried to convince me to go to a winter festival this weekÖyeah, it wasnít really happening. Itís one thing to ski or hike when itís cold and youíre dressed for it, but to try to socialize or move between events and look nice when itís really, really cold and snowing and slushy is just not a good time.

I have joked that schools in the north should do fall recruitment and southern should do winter because the temps are much for favorable for each season. I know Indy gets cold this time of year but nobody expected this!

Iím forever traumatized by the story with the PNM who broke her back during recruitment (in upstate NY) during a blizzard! It was so bad the schoolís health center was closed because of the emergency.

(She got a bid and was okay. Just sore.)

Ah good it ended well for her but good lord! Cornell is just starting and other schools like Syracuse and Binghamton are going to have recruitment soon. I couldn't imagine traversing the brutal upstate winters with a nice outfit on like that, though I've sene PNMs essentially have full winter get ups then remove everything to reveal their actual outfits.

Since we’re on IU Recruitment, I’m going to throw this in since it does touch on several bases. E. Jean Carroll, the noted journalist and author who’s now in the news over her lawsuits against Donald Trump, was not only a Pi Beta Phi at IU, but she was Miss Indiana University and an IU cheerleader, eventually winning the Miss Cheerleader USA award in the early/mid 1960’s.

I’m cheering her on to kick Trump’s ass!
