February 2010 –When Trinity first-year Morgan Fisler decided to join a sorority on campus, she did so not only to make connections and friends at the University, but also because she wanted to be involved with a group that was there for her when she needed them the most.
"I decided to become a part of a sorority because it's like finding your family on campus," Ms. Fisler, a new member of Alpha Chi Lambda, said. "It's definitely a big step, and I’m really excited because now I know that I’m going to be a part of something a little bit bigger than what I was already a part of."
On Friday, Feb. 5, Ms. Fisler and about 300 other Trinity students took part in Bid Day, an annual event when seven sororities and seven fraternities converge on Miller Fountain to welcome their new members. Students danced, rollerskated, blew bubbles, drank Red Bull, and soaked themselves in the fountain as they bonded their new friendships.
“I met some really cool guys, and I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my four years at college,” Juan Perez, president of Kappa Kappa Delta, said of his Greek life experience. “It’s one of the best days of their lives. I remember mine two years ago. It was awesome.”
