How many days until Formal Recruitment begins? Believe it or not, not that many!! One of Oxford’s favorite gift resources, Katherine Beck, is preparing for your daughter to have the perfect gifts throughout this memorable journey. Katherine Beck works hard to design quality Greek gifts that will make your best girl feel proud to rep new letters.
With so many options to choose from, the Katherine Beck Rush Team offers both “Rush Happies” and “Bid Day Gifts”.
What is a “Rush Happy?” you ask? These are non-Greek affiliated items delivered to your daughter’s dorm lobby each day of Recruitment for as many days as you choose. The Rush Team at Katherine Beck has a themed gift list that makes it a breeze to choose the best gifts for your daughter! If this list does not fit what you want to do, no worries. They are tickled to help you according to your price point or gift idea. (FYI, you’ll be hearing a lot about little “happies” for the next four years!)
★ KB “Go Greek” T-Shirt Day
★ “Ole Miss” Day
★ “Spa” Day
★ “Re-Charge / Gourmet Treat” Day
★ “You Glow Girl” Day
★ “Dorm Decor” Day
★ “Encouragement” Day
★ “Jewelry” Day
To be sure that the gifts you are providing are handed off to your daughter, a representative from Katherine Beck will be waiting in your daughter’s dorm lobby until Recruitment rounds begin each day, allowing them plenty of time for pick-up and ensuring your daughter receives the gift you selected for her. It is no problem if your daughter misses the pick-up for some reason and she cannot grab her gift, a representative will bring it back for her the next day at her convenience. Your daughter will also receive a text letting her know she has a happy waiting downstairs for her!
Bid Day Gifts
Bid Day is one of the most exciting days of freshman year! Your daughter will be so eager and excited to wear her new letters around campus or add their colors to their rooms. The Rush Team at Katherine Beck works all year long to make sure the gifts they offer in Bid Day packages can help make your daughter feel at home. Their packages are filled with trendy, unique items fit for your new sorority girl!
Three options are offered, including two customizable options and one preselected option. The first customizable option is the KB Shining Star which includes everything. This package can be 100% filled with your choices or the girls at Katherine Beck can hand pick each item. This package will be the FIRST gift assembled and delivered on Bid Day.
The KB Classic is the pre-selected gift. This will be the easiest Bid Day package option filled with Katherine Beck’s most popular Greek items, personally chosen from years of experience. All you have to do is choose which package of the KB Classic you would like to purchase, and they will add your daughter’s name after the Bid List is received. These are the second packages to be delivered on Bid Day.
The KB Custom gift package is filled with your specific gift choices and will be made once Katherine Beck receives the Bid List.
Just so you know, Katherine Beck does NOT receive the Bid List until the girls get their Bid Cards. They will begin making and delivering gifts immediately AFTER the new members know..
Gifts will be delivered to the houses all day long on Bid Day until they are locked out. Deliveries will resume the next morning (and for the next few days) until all the gifts are signed for. It is best to tell your daughter to be on the lookout for her package because the houses do become quite crowded with gifts.
Please note that exchanges can be made during a limited and specified time period, but only for other alternatives of Greek gifts. In the unlikely case that your daughter does not accept a bid, they can still receive a “non-sorority” happy gift or you are allowed to cancel. Either way, Katherine Beck will take good care of you!
