NC Begins Volleyball Season

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

This year, brothers have expressed interest in playing more intramural sports. The Sports Committee took a poll and organized a volleyball team to play against other organizations on campus. In order to register with Student Recreation, six females had to sign up to participate a week before the first game. There were few to no males interested in playing, however the social committee provided an opportunity for males to play in a co-ed pick-up game later in the week at the campus gym.

NC Movie Night

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

Brothers of the North Carolina Chapter enjoy seeing each other regularly outside of meetings. It is important to take breaks our busy lives so we decided to spend a few hours laughing at a nearby $2 movie theater. The social committee organized the event by taking a poll of which movie brothers wanted to see. We decided to see Ted at 7:50pm on Friday, October 26th. Seven brothers viewed the movie while eating popcorn and other treats. It was great to have an opportunity to laugh, relax, and enjoy the fellowship.

This semester, the North Carolina Chapter is proud to welcome 7 new members to the brotherhood. 35 brothers attended inductions on Wednesday, October 24th at 6:30pm.

After the ceremony, we watched a slide show of pictures from rush and candidate education week.

NC Flag Football

NC Flag Football

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

Every fall semester, the North Carolina Chapter forms a co-ed intramural flag football team to play against other organizations on campus. This year, we played two games on Tuesday September 4th and Tuesday September 11th at 7:30. In order to register with Student Recreation, at least four females and four males had to sign up to participate about a week before the first game. Alpha Zeta won the first game against Alpha Omega in a 10-0 shutout. The second game was very close, but the team did not pull it out.  Each game lasted about an hour. Playing football is a great way for brothers to have fun, relieve stress, and provides a break from studying. Brothers can also work on their teamwork and communication skills. The NC chapter also participates in other sports such as soccer and volleyball.

The North Carolina Chapter is lucky to have such a supportive network of alumni both locally and internationally. Alumni frequently come back for chapter meetings and sponsor events such as Agriculture Awareness Week on campus. Members of the Leadership and Government Relations Committee have been looking for ways to involve more alumni in chapter activities. The committee is working with advisors to coordinate an alumni speaker series. Our first speaker, Rory Roten met with the 35 brothers on August 29th at 7:30pm.
