Special Thank You to the Florida Chapter's Fall 2015 Speakers!

This past fall semester, the Florida Chapter was fortunate enough to hear from a wide variety of speakers. From Conservationists, to Pharmacists, to Entrepreneurs, we learned a lot about the vast opportunities being involved in agriculture can bring.

Florida Chapter Pledge Fundraiser Yogurtology

Florida Chapter Pledge Fundraiser Yogurtology

This past Saturday the new Alpha Zeta pledge class held a restaurant fundraiser at a local frozen yogurt vendor called Yogurtology. It was a great way for the pledge class to kick off fundraising because we got to eat super yummy fro-yo. If you went with brothers, it was nice to socialize while helping out our organization and if you went with non-AZ friends it was a great way to get them involved in supporting AZ! It was super easy to set up too—just try emailing local business to see if they’ll give you a percentage of their sales for one night. - Carson Cooper, PC Fundraising Chair

Florida Chapter Pledge Scavenger Hunt

Florida Chapter Pledge Scavenger Hunt

This semester I organized a scavenger hunt around campus for the pledges. At each station, they found brothers waiting to give them the next clue. The pledges split up into two teams, and the team that got back first got an extra hour to go in any category that they want (social, fundraising, or service). It was really fun organizing and seeing them all run around campus and working together to finish their hunt. Afterwards, we had a reflection time to discuss team-work and some challenges they may have faced. This was a great event that brought out the strengths of the pledges and allowed them to bond together while achieving a goal.

Florida Chapter Pledge Ice Breaker

Florida Chapter Pledge Ice Breaker

I like to start off the first couple of pledge meetings with an ice breaker. This ice breaker involves 2 items: post-it notes and a pen. I wrote a person, place or thing on the post-it note and placed it on the pledges forehead. They then had to go around and ask yes or no questions in order to figure out who/what they are. It was a great activity to get everyone up and moving!
