When will I move in if I am living on campus?

Registration for COB Fall 2021 is OPEN.

What is COB?

Continuous Open Bidding or COB is a way for sororities to extend bids during the school year should spaces become available. 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. COB is a great way to join a Panhellenic sorority if you are interested!
