The Florida Chapter had its second intramural sand volleyball game on Sunday. Although we would love to be out in the sunshine our time slot is at 7 PM. The members who showed up to play that night and were met by an impressive team that had played together since high school. Unfortunately, we had our first loss, but members showed great improvement upon the first game and are definitely looking forward to successive games. As for the game itself a few of our members served aces adding to our score!...

Event: “Alzamora somos todos”

Originally posted by Paola Luna

A rough translation of the event’s title is "We are all Alzamora”, Alzamora being the name of the estate that the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez Campus is in charge off. The estate is used for the college researches that are related to agriculture, may it be soils, animals, plants, etc. The event was held Saturday, November 5, and it basically consisted of giving maintenances services to the estate. The university is benefited from this event because the budget giving to the estate is not very high and by giving the services that were done on the event the estate is better preserved and is still being kept used for student and professor researches. The chapter is also benefited from this event because the estate is used for various activities, including special laboratories that are part of the student’s main curriculum...

UF Air Potato Round Up Service 1/28/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida chapter grabbed bags and gloves to remove one of Gainesville’s most threatening plant species- the air potato. The theme of the event this year was "Beware of the Dark Side Darth Tater” and the forest was with our members on this particular morning. This annual event is attended by hundreds of Gainesville residents who spend the day working in local parks and on the University of Florida campus to remove the invasive plant, which really does resemble a potato. This year, 5700 lbs of air potatoes were collected from all over the city, as well as 95 bags of trash. AZ members felt great about helping the Gainesville community, and celebrated after at the Morningside Nature Center, enjoying food, music, and brotherhood.

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter started off the new semester with a little fun and games. At our first member meeting of the semester our social chair Kaylie Smith put together a scavenger hunt in order to get our members to know each other a little better. We started off the night taking turns introducing ourselves to allow our newest members the opportunity to put names to faces. We were then broken up into 7 teams that had to complete and take pictures of a variety of tasks such as "Tebowing" with the Tebow statue and arm wrestling with a stranger, which took place all across campus. Members sprinted out of the meeting room to start the first task of the semester!...
