Grilled Cheeses for Diseases was started as a way to raise funds to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Central Ohio. This years event took place on November 2, 2012.

This event was done in collaboration with Alpha Tau Zeta-FarmHouse Fraternity, and we greatly enjoy working with other students groups to take part in philanthrophy activites...

The Miller & Joseph Seminar:Strengthening Diverstiy Through Pluralism

The Miller & Joseph Seminar:Strengthening Diverstiy Through Pluralism

Originally posted by Melinda L. Lee

The weekend of October 12, 2012 twenty members participated in a Diversity Seminar, with 14 presenters and Seminar Hosts. Through participation in this three-day seminar, the Townsend AZP Chapter's 14th class developed a firm understanding of the ways that diversity and pluralism are related. On the first day of this seminar, AZP members focused on the many aspects of diversity, and discussed the social stigmas that are stereotypically attached to different ethnic, socioeconomic and religious groups. Students were able to participate in a hands-on activity that illustrated the fallacy that each person has an "even playing field" in life; students discussed the difference that monetary privileges can make on an individual's lifestyle and educational success.

AZP Recruitment Ice Cream Social / Meeting

Originally posted by Katilyn D. Stevens

Our third recruitment event was an information session in conjunction with a meeting. We ordered pizza and also had the rest of the ice cream and toppings from the previous recruitment sessions. I gave a PowerPoint presentation before the meeting and opened the floor to questions from the prospective members. This was a really great event because there was a large group of current members there to socialize with the prospectives. After the presentation and eating, we continued with our regularly scheduled meeting so they could see what a typical week in AZP would be like -- planning community service events, reviewing socials, and brainstorming for fundraisers...

AZP Recruitment Ice Cream Social~2

Originally posted by Katilyn D. Stevens

This was our second ice cream social for new member recruitment. It took place in a meeting room in the Recreation and Physical Activity Center, a more central location for prospective members living in other areas on campus. We gave our presentation about Alpha Zeta Parnters and then opened the floor to questions so the students could express their thoughts to us and in turn, we could share our wonderful AZP experiences. The ice cream was great, and created a fun atmosphere for the event! We used the same supplies from the previous ice cream social, and OSU provided the technical support necessary for the presentation. This event was held on January 18, 2012.

AZP Recruitment Ice Cream Social

Originally posted by Katilyn D. Stevens

Our chapter began the recruiting season, on January 17, 2012, with and ice cream social at OSU's agricultural living-learning community, Norton House. Here, around 15 prospective members gathered with 5 current AZP members to eat some ice cream and learn about our great honorary. Prospective students were invited to join over winter break; we sent letters to their parents and a copy of all the information was sent via email to the students in an effort to be more environmentally friendly, rather than sending the normal two hard copies. To prepare for the event, a new PowerPoint was created to urge these students to join AZP. We purchased ice cream and toppings, and they were a hit with our prospective members! After the presentation, we held a question-answer session with the panel of current members that attended. The event was a great success!
