How to Join Spring 2015 - Continuous Open Bidding (COB)

Continuous Open Bidding is a way for sororities to pick up a few women here and there.  It's very casual and unstructured and, since not every sorority participates, it's not easy to tell which sororities will participate in a given semester.  It doesn't operate on a schedule, so some sororities will complete their COB process before another begins it.  If you're interested in sorority membership, though, and a chapter invites you to a COB event, you should attend.  If you missed out on formal recruitment, this is a great way to try and find a sorority home at UT Arlington.

What is Continuous Open Bidding (COB)?

Continuous Open Bidding is a very informal process that sororities use to take in new members.  Unlike formal recruitment, there are no silence rules, no long days of going from party to party, or complicated invitation acceptances.  When a sorority holds COB, they simply contact a potential new member on their own and hold a series of informal events to get to know her better.  Each chapter does it differently.  Some might go to dinner with a potential member.  Some chapters might hold a 'board game night' in the chapter room and invite potential members to attend.  The one thing these parties do have in common is that they are a great way to casually meet people and they are always fun. 

Which CPH sororities have COB?

There is really no way to tell.  Some sororities find themselves eligible and do not have it, others will have it as soon as they have room for one person.  Some sororities will have it one year and not the next.  If you want to be a sorority member, putting your name in the COB mix is a great way to get involved.  If it's only one specific sorority you're interested in joining, COB might not be for you.

 How will CPH sororities decide who they will invite?

There are several ways sororities might get names.  A sorority will also poll its members to get ideas.  An officer will announce that the chapter will be conducting COB and will ask if anyone already knows someone who might be interested.  For this reason, it is important that you let your sorority friends know that you would be interested in learning more and maybe joining, should they conduct COB.
