Ruth Hartnett, junior and the president of Kappa Alpha Theta, waves her letters as she waits for the new members to arrive.

Sisters welcomed their new members Wednesday during a bid day celebration on campus for the second year.

Bid day was held in Kogan Plaza last year when a government shutdown restricted the sororities access to the National Mall – the traditional site of bid day. This year, the Panhellenic Association found itself in the same position and held the event in Potomac Park, a parking lot off G Street.

Here are some photos from the event:
