Roundtable Inverviews

Originally posted by Lauren K. Mabry

On Sunday Feb 6th, the brothers of the North Carolina Chapter of Alpha Zeta met to interview our potential candidates.  We all met at Weaver labs at 11am in business professional dress and brought breakfast or brunch items to share.  We started the day by welcoming the potential candidates, showing them a slide show presentation of some of our activities, and singing the AZ friendship song.  These interviews gave us an opportunity to get to know these talented individuals and a time for them to ask us questions.  We interviewed twenty seven potential candidates and extended 25 bids! We are very excited about this potentially large candidate class and can't wait for them to become brothers of our fraternity.

Grilled Cheese for Diseases!

Originally posted by Stephanie M. Neal

We organized a fundraiser called Grilled Cheeses for Diseases. For this event we partnered with ATZ Farmhouse Fraternity and used their house to make grilled cheeses that were sold to students walking by. All the proceeds went to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This event was a great way to bring the members from each class together in a fun way that benefited a great cause. Our chapter participated because we wanted to do something that we never tried before and everyone really seemed to have enjoyed themselves. The chair of the social and community service committee organized the event with the help of her committee and ATZ members. We distributed flyers on campus, made a facebook group and made posters advertising the event.

Krispy Kreme Challenge

Krispy Kreme Challenge

Originally posted by Lauren K. Mabry

On Saturday Feb 5, six brothers met at Weaver labs at 6:30am to volunteer for the annual Krispy Kreme Challenge.  We carpooled to our local Krispy Kreme, two miles from campus.  The Krispy Kreme challenge is an annual run starting at the bell tower on NCSU's campus.  The runners run 2 miles to the Krispy Kreme, eat a dozen doughnuts and then run back hoping to finish in under an hour.  Our brothers helped set up, pass out doughnuts and water during the run and helped clean up after. We even had 2 brothers that competed in the run.   It was unfortunately raining the entire time.  The Krispy Kreme even donated doughnuts for our roundtable the day after the event.

Some members of Alpha Zeta participated in a workshop offered to the scientific community by The Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico, which is a non-profit organization that protects the Island’s natural resources. They develop programs aimed at educating the public about environmental issues. During the workshop we study the bats excrement to thereby determine which bats were responsible for the dispersion of native trees and plants.

Coffee Farm Cleaning

Coffee Farm Cleaning

Originally posted by Jacqueline Armstrong

On February 5th, Alpha Zeta visited the "Farm of Octavio" in Lares, Puerto Rico. This farm consists mostly of coffee, plantains and some oranges. It is 25 acres but not all of it is in production at the moment. Currently, the owner is trying to stabilize the conditions that are not producing to begin planting. The purpose of the activity was to help those areas that were full of weeds, grass and trees to provide a better planting condition for the owner. We started helping by cleaning out most of the area where the coffee is going to be planted. This was done with machetes due to the high costs associated with machinery and equipment, which also carries away the soil layers containing organic matter. After hard work, the owner served us food made in wood, something very typical of rural area.
