UF Pledge Spring '11 Keep Alachua County Beautiful's Great American Cleanup Service 3-19-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

The Spring 2011 pledge class members cleaned up a bike trail. Corinne Oliphant is the spring '11 pledge class service chair. The six in attendance picked up all the trash that was on the ground or in the bushes along the trail. This service event benefited the community and the people that used this bike trail. The chapter benefited by gaining the knowledge that keeping a community clean and livable takes a lot of time and effort.

Empty Bowls is an organization that helps feed the homeless. Our service chair, Kaitlyn Summerfield, planned for the UF chapter of AZ to go to the Arts and Crafts Center in our student union to help this organization and our community while exercising our creativity in painting the ceramic pieces at the same time! The 16 that attended had a great time picking out paint colors and creating their unique designs on the bowls and cups! We are honored to help Empty Bowls be an encouraging resource the hungry and homeless in our community.

Special Friends Day

On March 6th, 14 brothers and 3 pledges helped out at a table for Special Friends Day. The activity at the table was making dream catchers and the kids that came were allowed to decorate them however they wanted. All of the kids were really very sweet and had some amazing paintings that were on their dream catchers. Feeling inspired, some of the brothers also decided to paint a bit and here are some of the pictures that they made.

Ice Cream Social and Responsible Happy Hour

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

On March 4th, 20 brothers went to the Ice Cream Social that Helyar House was hosting at Responsible Happy Hour. They were raising money for Give Kids the World Village in Florida by selling ice cream at a $1 per scoop. It was an extremely fun event because who doesn't love ice cream and the money was going to a great cause. We also wanted to support one of our brothers who lives at Helyar House and helped to run the event.

New Member Retreat

New Member Retreat

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

On February 26th, 21 pledges, the Censor and the Sergeant in Arms made their way out to the Meadows to hold the New Member Retreat. There the pledges got to hang out with their mommy and daddy while coloring and going over the history of Alpha Zeta. They were soon joined by our amazing Chancellor and Pledge Committee who brought with them a variety of different types of pizza and soda for lunch. Pledge Committee then played "Who's story is it?" with the pledges, which involved the pledges anonymously writing down an embarrassing or funny story that they were ok with sharing on a piece of paper. Then the Chair of Pledge Committee read out loud the story and everyone had to guess whose story it was. Both the Censor and the Sergeant in Arms also played. Once the game was over Scholarship Committee arrived and met with the pledges individually to help them write their debate papers, which is one of the requirements for pledging the Cook Chapter of Alpha Zeta.

Applebees!

Applebees!

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

After the pledge meeting on February 16th, 33 brothers and 10 pledges carpooled out to the Applebees off of Ryders lane. There everyone enjoyed the half priced appetizers and some great conversation while getting to know everyone around you. This even is particularly important for the brothers who want to be bigs since it is the last mingling even before the New Member Ritual Night. The semesterly tradition of going to Applebees has been the reason for many of the big/ little pairings over the past couple of semesters.

On February 10th, 2 pledges, 2 alumni, and 14 brothers made their way to one of the some of the brothers' off campus house to watch a Happy Gilmore. This was a fun, relaxing way to spend a Thursday night instead of doing homework and allowed for the pledges and brothers to get to know each other better. It also allowed for the brothers to get to hang out with some of the alumni that we all dearly miss and wish could make it back to more of our chapter events.
