Overheard At Bid Day

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for sorority girls both new and old. En masse, hoards of girls stampeded through the HUB yesterday at lightning speed toward their forever sisters. Bid Day, if nothing else, is an extravaganza of epic proportions. It never fails to capture the full range of human emotion, which is why we decided to spend an hour watching the events unfold just for your enjoyment:

Sorority girl in the bathroom right before bid acceptance: “Does this boa make me look obese?”

A proud future big: “We have the best babies in the game! They’re literally the cutest pledge class ever!”
A bit more conceited future big: “Second cutest. We were the cutest. They’re close though.”

Girl who seems to be confused about the biological process of giving birth: “We’re moms you guys! We have freakin’ babies!”

Girl crying who didn’t get the bid she wanted: “I don’t know if I’m strong enough for this.”

Girl stuck in the slang of 2014: “Oh my God, I just literally can’t right now.”

Two sorority girls trying to assert their dominance: “You know you wanna be us! We’re the best.”

Spectator eating popcorn, which seemed strangely fitting: “This is better than the Super Bowl.”

Girl who took Bid Day a little too seriously: “I literally think I sprained my ankle.”

Veteran sorority girl who’s beyond done with recruitment season: “I feel like death. I want this to be over.”

Girl 1: “These past two days have been the best!”
Girl 2: “Oh are you an Eagles fan? Me too!”
Girl 1: “Oh… no. I’m a Patriots fan.”
Girl 2: *smiles awkwardly*

Girl from a family of brothers on FaceTime: “Look, Mom! I finally have sisters!”

Girl who must live for glitter, feather boas, and shrieking: “This is the best day of my life… well, like, except for when I get married. But this is the best day of my life so far.”
