About Continuous Open Bidding

Continuous Open Bidding, or COB, is a relaxed process in which students can go through recruitment at any point in the semester. You can fill out the interest form linked above at any point this spring and you will receive an email from Xi Omicron Iota with more information. Should you choose to continue with the COB process, you will be paired with an active member, called your "bulldog buddy," and meet with them. They will assist you through the COB process. You will also be required to meet with another active member of Xi Omicron Iota and attend one sisterhood event in order to be considered for a bid. Xi Omicron Iota will stop giving out bids on Friday, April 30, so be sure to have your requirements completed by that date. 

COB is a fantastic opportunity for those who are interested in joining Xi Omicron Iota but were intimidated by the recruitment process or missed spring recruitment earlier this semester. It allows potential new members to complete the steps of the recruitment process on their own time, making it a great opportunity for those with a heavy course load or more time commitments. It is a relaxed process and an amazing chance to meet the women of Xi Omicron Iota. Please fill out the interest form if you would like more information!
