You're so wired, you won't even need a skinny vanilla latte to wake you up, but you'll probably have one anyway. 4. Matching outfits. Via pinterest.com Most days, you roll out of bed, throw on your leggings and spirit jersey and rush out the door. NOT TODAY! Every last detail of your outfit is perfectly planned out from Bid Day t-shirt to hair bow. And everything is decked out in your sorority's colors. Just like those awkward family Christmas cards but cuter. 5. You RUN, not walk, to greet your new members.

Yea, Bid Day is just like that... except the presents are people. You RUN as soon as you catch a glimpse of your chapter's new pledge class. Immediately hugging, spinning, congratulating and laughing with girls you may not even know by name yet. 6. Most people often forget the true meaning. Via pinterest.com Bid Day marks the beginning of an amazing journey that can only be understood by those who are lucky enough to experience sisterhood. Sororities, like Christmas, are often only seen in one fun, shiny, pink light. However, a sorority is so much more than that. The bonds, the memories, the networking, and the life skills gained all add up to something that doesn't just last 4 years, but for life.
