LOU & CO RUSH 101
The University of Alabama sorority recruitment begins on Saturday, August 8th with Bid Day on Sunday, August 16th. With the university holding the largest sorority recruitment in the country, finding your home away from home is a major accomplishment.
Lou & Company would love to be a part of your daughter’s recruitment experience during this exciting time. We will deliver New Member Packages to the sorority houses after Bid Day in anticipation of the new members return from their new member retreats. In coordination with local vendors, each sorority has designated a specific time and date for New Member Package deliveries.
We are happy to help brighten your loved one’s week, and would be honored to get to be a part of her recruitment experience! Give us a call at 205-535-7576 to order your recruitment gifts!
What is a Bid Day basket?
A Bid Day basket is a special surprise sent to new members once they have accepted a bid. All Bid Day baskets come in a wrapped white basket with a hand-written note that may by customized by you.
We have a variety of Bid Day packages and custom packages. Whether you are buying a gift for your daughter, granddaughter, or friend, we have a variety of gift options at different price points. However, if you do not see a package that works for you, feel free to give us a call at 205-535-7576. We would love to help!
If we run out of a product you want, a product of equal of more value will be replaced in the package. Items may be exchanged so that we make sure your daughter gets exactly what you’ve ordered. Exchanges may only be made for other Greek merchandise.
What is a rush week good luck gift?
Rush week good luck gifts are delivered during the week of rush to the lobbies of the girls’ dorms.
Lou & Company will notify the girls receiving gifts by text message each day once the gifts have been delivered.

When will they be delivered?
Lou & Company will deliver New Member Packages to the sorority houses post Bid Day in anticipation of the new members return from their new member retreats. In coordination with Panhellenic, each sorority has designated a specific time and date for New Member Package deliveries. All girls receiving a gift will receive a text message, notifying them that their New Member Package has been delivered to their sorority house.
How will we know which sorority she will receive a bid from?
Once the girls receive their bids on Bid Day, Lou & Company will receive a “bid list” from Panhellinic. We will not know which sorority the girls will accept until we receive this list from Panhellinic, as it is confidential. If we do not see your daughter’s name on this list, we will call you to make sure this is correct.
What will happen if a girl does not accept or receive a bid?
If a girl’s name is not on the Bid Day list, Lou & Company will call you to confirm that this is correct. If she does not receive a bid, you will have the option to either send her a “happy,” a non-Greek item, or store credit.
