Overheard On Yik Yak: Fraternity & Sorority Recruitment Edition

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, folks! Fraternity and sorority recruitment!

For two weeks, eager students attend recruitment events to determine which sorority or frat they fit in best with. Some people meet their future best friends and others quickly realize that Greek life is not for them. Either way, the commentary is hilarious and, well, sometimes mean.

Yik Yak, an anonymous location-based social media app, has been flooded with recruitment Yaks the past week as students navigate the world of Penn State Greek life.

Check out what’s been going on in the world of recruitment.

“Streets on bid day are worse than Philly streets after the game last night”

Give it two more weeks until the Philly frat boys are rioting in Beaver Canyon. Go birds.

“Whoever makes the frat rush logos and designs is so babygirl”

Marketing interns stay putting their Canva skills to use.

“ZBT thought they were him”

Tough day to be a Zeeb.

“Petition to all Sororities to organise Naked Mile to raise money for THON”

Mifflin Streak but make it ~philanthropic~.

“DG just released 200 metric tons of CO2 into the atmosphere”

Someone get Greta Thunberg on this fr.

“DG ppl drive Toyota Priuses”

Delta Gamma vs. the world, I suppose.

“ATO needs a big class so their dues can pay the bond to release their felons!”

In case you missed it, two ATO brothers were arrested this week for an alleged altercation that took place in October on Frat Row.

“kappa literally stole aphis bid day theme from last year how embarrassing”

Alpha Phi invented sports. People forget that. 😔

“#enddryperiod2023”

Why as a society are we still pretending like anyone actually stops drinking?

“Bid day at the den is crazy”

NSO part two.

“how do i drop the sorority i just joined”

Think about how much money you could’ve saved, bestie.

“Can someone pls tell me wtf is cob? Like 🌽??”

For those wondering, it’s continuous open bidding. Don’t worry. We had to look it up, too.

“Shortlidge rd looks like 50 shades of blonde”

Blondes stay winning!

“me watching my follower count go up #happybidday”

Follow for follow ❤ Like for like ❤

“Gphis theme looks like January 6”

Denim on denim is in, folks. Gamma Phi Beta went with a Levis/ Canadian tuxedo theme, which, to be fair, was probably what some people wore when they stormed the Capitol in 2021.

“Remembering when I told a srat girl I rushed Skulls and her first response was ‘Why? Do you hate yourself'”

They call themselves Skulls because they scare all the girls away. Source: “srat girl” above.

“got a bid from CATA😍🧸

That Blue Loop bid day theme went 🅱razy.

“Wtf is an orange themed bid day. Like why is ur bid day theme a fruit”

I’m ~crushing on you,~ Phi Sig!
