Bid Turn-In (BTI)

An E&H tradition between Wiley Jackson & the Chapel! Prior to this event, fraternities and sororities will hand out bids (invitations to join their organization) to potential new members (PNM). Fraternities will deliver to PNM rooms and sororities will deliver to PNM mailboxes. Participants will have allotted time to inform the Greek life Specialist and Greek Council President if they have accepted a bid and from what chapter. During the event, participants will announce which chapter they have accepted a bid from. 

Greek Service Day

Organizations go out into the surrounding community to participate in Greek Service Day. 

New Member Education Week 

This is the time period where the new member learns about their Greek organization before initiation. Each organization’s new member education process is different, however, all programs are reported to the Greek Life Specialist and their chapter advisors.
