Actually, I am right on time!!

So at 4pm we gathered in the quad area of the Greek and were each handed an envelope that would contain our bid. Because it takes a while to pass out 420 envelopes, we each had to sit on ours until every single person had theirs.

After what seemed like forever (I guess kind of like this thread!) we were told that we could open.

I opened my envelope to find an invitation to:














Carol Seaver



Better known as....












Kappa Alpha Theta!

And now to tie up some loose ends...

My roommate and her friend both became members of Flo.

And the rushee that started giggling in Tootie... turns out both her mother and grandmother were Tooties. But the moment that the cheesy thing happened, she knew it just wasn't for her. She wound up being one of my pledge sisters, and we were great friends throughout college.

Sadly, Chrissy Snow closed down that fall due to declining numbers. I can't remember how many pledges they got that year, but it was a very small amount. (quota was 42).

As far as regretting my rankings... not once in all the years since. I won't go into too much detail, but let's just say that over the next few weeks several experiences and observations confirmed that I had indeed picked the house right for me.

Congrats on your choice. It is nice to look back and feel good about the decisions you made, the memories you have, etc.

Please let us know the real names of your houses on campus. That is always fun to see.

Congrats (belatedly) on Theta! This may be bad form but could you reveal your code? Or maybe just Tootsie and Mallory?

Just like you, I make my decisions by weighing pros and cons. However, I do get gut feelings and hunches that tend to lead me in the right direction. That is how I chose my current career of librarianship. And I got a similar gut feeling that Theta Phi Alpha was right for me.

Congrats to you and Kappa Alpha Theta. Shows that you made the right choice and that you enjoy Theta so much.

Can we at least know who Tootie and Mallory were, since you liked them so much?
