Florida Chapter Pledge Class Plaque Cleaning Service Project

Florida Chapter Pledge Class Plaque Cleaning Service Project

Las week the pledge class of the Florida Chapter Alpha Zeta wanted to show our love and graditue to the previous brothers and our campus by cleaning and polishing our AZ plaque. We gathered together and washed, scrubbed and polished the gold plaque on campus. While getting wet and dirty, we put in a lot of elbow grease in order for our history to shine into the future. We are planning on doing this again this semester, allowing it to shine even more. - Olivia Scruggs, Pledge Class Service Chair

Florida chapter's new pledge class is super studious! Here is a picture of the pledges at their second study social. It was a great way to collaborate on homework and learning material while also getting to know each other and enjoying some donuts.

Florida Chapter Pledge Class Concessions

Florida Chapter Pledge Class Concessions

This Sunday the new Alpha Zeta pledges ran a concessions stand for Florida’s baseball team against Tennessee. Ten pledges volunteered which upgraded us to a bigger stand that typically sells more food and brings in more money. When the crowd wasn’t there, it was nice to socialize and bond with the brothers. It was also a great way for us to communicate by passing along orders and working together. Overall, we made quite a bit of money from our stand just with 10% back from sales and had a great time doing it. The baseball team won too! - Carson Cooper, PC Fundraising Chair

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!

Florida Chapter Pledging Process

Florida Chapter Pledging Process

First meeting and elections

The first pledge meeting happened on February 10th. We have 16 pledges this spring semester, and their first meeting was very successful. I introduced them to the purpose and history of the Fraternity, and they had their officer elections at the end of the meeting. 

We can't wait to see what our pledge class will accomplish!

PR Chapter Fraternization at the Movie Theater

Alpha Zeta visited the movie theater in Western Plaza in Mayaguez on November 24th at 9:15 pm to watch The Mockingjay. Both current members and pledges assisted to the event and enjoyed the film. We experienced the highs and lows of the movie together, some members more than others, and also heard the comments of nonfans that assisted merely to fraternize. The nonfans thought, for some reason, that the whole movie was to happen up on a three, while there was a member that kept making faces at certain new characters in the sequel, though she would not explain why. All in all, e had a pleasant time and after watching the movie, we conversed about anything and everything late into the night.

On November 17th, the Florida Chapter had the pleasure of welcoming 18 new brothers to our Fraternity! After a grueling 7 week process, the 18 pledges completed all of their requirements and were initiated. 

The evening started off with the initiation ceremony, followed by a buffet style dinner and Dr. Charles Guy's presentation on plants and human health, and concluded with the pledge class Chronicler's video presentation and awards. In attendance were the faculty sponsors, the newly initiated pledges, and fraternity brothers.

Three awards were given out: Best Paddle, Most Outstanding Pledge, and Most Outstanding PC officers. Congratulations to Stephen, Brittney, and Maya respectively for your achievements, and a big welcome to our new Brothers! We can't wait for next semester!
