"I feel like I had certain expectations for what a sorority would be like, but when I became a Phi Mu, this sisterhood took all of my expectations and disproved them in the best way possible."
-Grace In, Pledge Class '16
Bid Day is the final day of formal recruitment where new members receive their official invitation to join our sisterhood. This night consists of warm welcomes, introductions, food, refreshments, and time to celebrate with new sisters. At the conclusion of formal recruitment 2019, we will welcome our new sisters home! We absolutely love getting to meet all of our new members this day & do our absolute best to make their new home welcoming & a fun place to run home to! Past Bid Day themes have been "Together We MΦve Μountains", "Bonnamu", and "On Cloud Nine".
Sisterhood Retreat occurs once a year. Our sisterhood chairman plans a trip where all chapter members go to relax and enjoy time with one another through various activities and a day off campus to be together! The purpose of these retreats is for sisters to take time away from their busy schedules to spend time with each other in the midst of busy semesters, and is amazing because we rarely get the chance to have every member in the same place at the same time. This year, our sisterhood retreat took place on March 24 at Cary Camp in Lafayette.
In addition to the retreat, our sisterhood chairman also plans "de-stress" events throughout the semester. These events have consisted of tie-dying, ice skating, roller blading, spa night, Cards Against Humanity, some endless pizza parties, and many more. We're always open to ideas!
