Thanks Carnation!

I'm very partial but I think the house is cool too & you're right...everyone always says it reminds them of New Orleans. I grew up only 2 hours away from New Orleans so perhaps I was instinctively drawn to the architecture as well as the girls :-) I do remember the first time visiting the campus while still in high school & pulling up to Magnolia Drive. My mom says my eyes grew huge when I laid eyes on the Chi O house so I guess it was love at first sight!!

Where will the parents of all these girls park for bid day? Isn't that move in day for the rest of campus?

Honey, if they can find parking for 120,000 people on game day, this piddling group won't have a problem!

no really, can anyone recommend parking for bid day? We're driving in from oos, and don't want to spend the morning looking for parking.
I've always wondered where everyone parked for ball games too.

I know Alabama recruitment is huge, but this seems massive (unless I'm not remembering previous numbers correctly...)

Latest word is that PNM numbers are over 1600 and they are expecting quota to be around 90.

Your best bet is to park on one of the side streets on the Tutwiler dorm side and walk down to sorority row.

There is going to be more regulation (with security at each house) of who can come in the sorority houses on bid day. Boyfriends and random students will not be allowed. This might discourage some of them from coming but I wouldn't count on it!

We've been told that the only men that will be allowed in the house are the new girls' dads. Brothers won't be allowed in. Just a heads up before the whole family heads down to Tuscaloosa for bid day lunch only to have the boys turned away.

Right before recruitment, there are always rumors of huge amounts of PNMs signing up at the last minute.
UA Greek Affairs tweeted on Aug. 2 that 1,637 were signed up.
