The beginning of school is right around the corner, you know what that means? Finally getting back to your Alpha Sigma Tau sisters and welcoming home a whole lot more on Bid Day! Bid Day is the most anticipated day of the year, so make sure everything is planned and prepped and perfection ahead of time so you’re not stressing when recruitment sneaks up on you. To help you pull off an unforgettable bid day, we gathered these four simple steps to help you start planning ASAP
1.Choose a theme
Every decor piece, gift, shirt and maybe even drink and snack will tie into your bid day theme. There are so many great theme ideas out there, the hard part will be choosing just the right one in the sea of great ideas. If you need some inspo. make sure to check out our Alpha Sigma Tau Bid Day Pinterest Board. We’ve made sure to pin all our favorite trendy and classic theme ideas whether they are AST specific or popular with any chapter.
2. Decor and Food
Sticking with your theme, make sure you have a trusted committee along with you to make your vision come to life with decoration and food options! Having a “Welcome to the Big Leagues” themed bid day? Have an artsy sister paint your AST letters with cute baseball designs. Follow the theme through to all of the decor and have the same design on some photo props and your new member’s signs.
3. Book a killer DJ
It’s proven fact that sorority women love dancing, and what better way to introduce your beautiful new recruits to your chapter than with a super fun DJ and some 90’s throwbacks. Music is crucial, but if you don’t have it in your budget for a DJ, designate a sister to create an epic Spotify playlist and your new members will dance the night away just the same!
