AZ Cornell Volleyball Team

Throughout this fall semester, Alpha Zeta Cornell was represented in the co-recreational intramural volleyball games. Our team had a successful season this year, making it the playoffs! We were very happy to do better than last year. It sure helps that one of our AZ sisters is on the club women's volleyball team. Though, everyone played great and in the end, it was all about having a lot of fun together. We are excited for the next intramural sports season!

Our members, along with our just newly initiated brothers and sisters, started their Saturday morning by heading out to this road section armed with orange safety vests, garbage bags, and gloves. Walking along the road, we picked up any litter that had been left behind and filled many garbage bags full of trash. ...

Transforming the room into a mini-movie theater, we cuddled up on the couches and tried not to get too scared. With movies such as the Blair Witch and Dead Silence we were sure in for a fright-filled week. After three nights of terror we decided to go with a more festive movie on Thursday night, ...

Cornell Showing of Farmland

Originally Posted By Natasha A. Bartolotta

On Monday, October 27 the Cornell Cinema on campus showed the movie Farmland. This documentary follows the lives of farmers and ranchers in their 20's who are all responsible for running their farming business. Taking viewers directly inside the world of young farmers, this is a great movie for those who do not know much about the people who grow their food. Back in September, when we held our Beef-A-Polouza event in association with the Beef Checkoff, we promoted the viewing of Farmland to ...

In the festive spirit of October, members of our chapter headed to a local pumpkin patch to take advantage of a special deal on pumpkins.There was one catch though...you had to take as many pumpkins as you could carry in your own hands. Our determined actives took on the challenge and worked together to bring home 33 pumpkins! With all these pumpkins we were able to spend the rest of the afternoon in the front yard carving to our hearts content. A few pumpkins were carved as traditional ...
