Screams of joy and excitement filled the Apollo Room of the Student Union on Sept. 9 as dozens of female students pledged to join six different sororities to wrap up the end to Wright State’s bid week.
Students completed three rounds of discussions to select their top two sororities. The rounds included a philanthropy round, sisterhood round and a preference round.
“I really hope that they feel empowered and they feel the confidence to do whatever they want to do,” said Emily Green, a senior middle childhood education major and president of the College Panhellenic Council.
Every student received an envelope at the same time, revealing the sorority they will join.
“I’m so excited and I cannot wait to start my new journey,” said Kaelynn Speed, a freshman nursing major.
New members joined their awaiting sisters by revealing their name and sorority and bursting through a curtain while wearing their sorority T-shirt.
This is the 46th year Wright State has hosted bid day.
