Bid Day is right around the corner, are you ready to welcome your new Sigma Delta Tau sisters home? From most to least time sensitive we’ve narrowed down the top 4 most important tasks you need to lock down ASAP to make sure you give your new members the most memorable bid day.
1.Theme. Theme. Theme.
The number one most important aspect of Bid Day (besides your perfect new Sig Delts of course) is the theme! Every decor piece, gift, shirt and maybe even drink and snack will tie into your bid day theme so make sure it’s one that you’re prepared to center the whole night around. There are so many great theme ideas out there, but you want to make sure your theme is relevant to your sorority and different from the themes the other chapters on campus are doing. Our favorites are always when you can get Sigma Delta Tau into the theme name or tagline. Some cute ones we’ve seen are “Sig-Chella” and “Rock & Roll with the BeSDT”. Make sure to check out our Sigma Delta Tau Bid Day Pinterest board for even more theme and decor ideas!
2. Food & Photo-Ops
Let’s be honest, Bid Day is all about welcoming our new members home but it’s also about showing them off! Once you have your theme in place, the very next thing you should be planning is decor and food! Make sure you have some trusted sisters in your corner to help you execute your vision. Having a Baseball themed Bid Day? Go all American, bbq some hotdogs and have good ole’ fashion cracker jacks as snacks and a decor piece. Pop-art theme? Have an artsy sister paint giant comic book inspired letters, they will definitely be the most pictured decor piece at bid day.
Whether you choose to have Bid Day at your chapter house with a killer DJ and dance floor, on campus for an all-out mini carnival or at a different location like a skating rink, the most important thing is that it welcomes your new members home to SDT. Make it fun! Your chapter worked hard all recruitment for your new sisters, celebrate and show them what your sisterhood is all about!
