UF Pledge Class Potluck and Big/Little Reveal 4/10/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

It's that time of year again... potluck time!!! Potluck is a tradition in the Florida Chapter where the pledges put on a themed dinner for the members. Our pledges planned it and came up with a theme of Around the World. Pledges cooked up an entire buffet table of food and desserts for the members to feast on from all around the world. This year potluck was paired up with our big/little reveal where members and pledges dressed up as character pairs such as Pebbles and Bam-Bam, Marlin and Dori, and so many more. The potluck benefits both members and pledges by giving us an opportunity to socialize and get to know each other better...

UF Pledge Class Pet Food/Toy Collection Service 4/7/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter's spring pledge class put together a pet food and toys drive for the Humane Society in Gainesville. The Humane Society is a non-profit organization that strives to eliminate euthanasia of healthy, treatable cats and dogs in the area where they work quickly to find them new homes. All services they provide are made possible by volunteers and donations such as ours. A few of the pledges were able to deliver the bags of food and toys to help the dogs and cats in need. The members and pledges were able to give just a little which can make a huge difference in the lives of these animals in the community around us.

UF Pledge Class Orange and Blue Social 4/7/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter's pledge class met up with members and tons of other students and alumni from UF in a spring football tradition, the Orange and Blue game. The game is a scrimmage of the football team's offensive and defensive lines at the end of their spring practice session. They decided to go and take part in another tradition as students. In the group there were some crazy orange and blue covered fans ready to cheer on their team as they watched what was to become the team for fall...

UF Pledge Class Red Mango Fundraiser 4/5/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter's spring pledge class held a fundraiser at Red Mango from 8-11 PM where they receive a certain percentage of the profits from those hours. Members and pledges came out before or after the baseball game to meet up with each other and get some delicious frozen yogurt that could be topped with numerous things including fresh fruit. The fundraiser gave the pledge class an opportunity to offset some of the fees associated with pledging. Of course, what better way to do this than while eating frozen yogurt! Members and pledges enjoyed the company of each other while showing the new pledges support.

UF vs. LSU Baseball Social 4/5/12

UF vs. LSU Baseball Social 4/5/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter met up on the 5th to take part in an American tradition, baseball. Members wore their orange and blue from head to toe as they made their way into the stadium to cheer the Gators on against the LSU Tigers. Though we lost that night the Gators brought it back and won the game on the 6th making them 7-4 in the SEC. In the group members came and went since some had exams that night but all in all everyone had a blast and enjoyed watching our baseball team play. The game gave us the opportunity to see other events that go on during school besides homework and the fall football games.

First New Member Meeting and Applebees

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

On September 26th, 2012, prospective new members of the Alpha Zeta Cook chapter piled into a room where their first meeting would be held. This first meeting was held to see how many Rutgers students had decided to participate in the initiation process for our chapter. Our efforts to get our name into the community included two weeks of rush events, chalking and emails. We were rewarded with 25 potential new members who showed up to meet the e-board of the fraternity...

UF Pledge Class Road Cleanup 4/2/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter's pledge class cleaned up our adopted road with the help of some of our members. The members and pledges that participated in the clean-up did not mind taking time out of their schedule to pick up the trash and get it off the street. We normally find at least one surprise item as we clean down the road! The road clean-up was planned for an evening to avoid the heat of the day. We collected a bunch of trash cleaning up the community and making the people in the area very happy...

The Florida Chapter headed out to Tijuana Flats after our chapter meeting for their weekly Taco Tuesday. Members and pledges came out to catch up on what has been going on and get to know each other more so that the pledges can make a smooth transition into the chapter in less than a month! The dinner gave us an opportunity to relax and just hang out as friends without the stressors of school glooming over us. Members and pledges chowed down on tacos and tried out the many hot sauces from the hot sauce bar. We hope that this dinner after meetings becomes a regular event to give us a chance to become a closer AZ family!

Members and pledges chowed down on frozen yogurt and ice cream of all kinds while enjoying the company of members.
