Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

On April 15th, Sigma Alpha hosted their eleventh annual Swing-a-Thon fundraiser.  Fifteen brothers signed up to swing for fifteen minutes on the Brickyard. Each brother paid $10 to swing on the porch swing and received a t-shirt. Alpha Zeta helped to sponsor the event by donating over $100, so our name is printed on the shirts. The revenue from Swing-a-Thon goes towards Agriculture in the Classroom programs.

Brothers and potential new members of the Rutgers Cook Chapter assisted deans and Rutgers CORPs in working the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences open house on March 9, 2013.  Brothers assisted tour guides in their tours of the campus, answered potential and admitted students questions, and  helped deans and professors run their academic informational sessions.  There were over 1000 people in attendance and through the brothers' participation, everything ran smoothly.  Their volunteering was pivotal in making the open house a huge success.
