11 New Members Initiated!

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

A couple weeks ago, 11 new members were initiated into the Cornell Chapter, The weekend which consists of bonding activities, community service, and teaching of chapter traditions like songs, attracts alumni and is a weekend everyone looks forward to. The weekend concludes a 9 week long new member education process where new members participate in weekly events to learn Cornell, Alpha Zeta, and Chapter history and traditions. This initiation was unique for us because chapter initiation included a National Initiation (separate because we are a social fraternity also) on Saturday after where 3 Associate members were initiated in addition to new members.

Romance or "Bro"mance? Cornell Chapter Celebrates Valentine's Day

Romance or "Bro"mance? Cornell Chapter Celebrates Valentine's Day

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

What better for the girls of AZ to do on Valentine's Day than to show our brothers how much we love them! Last year it was a steak and potato dinner. This year it was a casino night at "Casino AgRoyale". The ladies of the Cornell Chapter planned a surprise evening of snacks and poker fun at our house, with the grand prize being a Nerf gun. It is always fun to take a step back from the daily activities of homework and studying and have fun with each other. Through personalized Valentine's poems, we were able to tell each one how much they mean to us... no matter how cheesy it might have seemed! The girls had a blast cooking, baking, and valentine making while the boys had fun and were able to bond while playing poker.

Morrill Chapter Visits Cornell Chapter

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

This past weekend, 7 members of the Morrill Chapter at Penn State came to visit the Cornell Chapter. Through a fun night of fellowship, we got to know some of the members from the closest AZ Chapter to us. As the only two chapters of AZ that have a house and also consider themselves as "social" organizations within the Greek community on our campuses, we try to visit one another at least one time a semester, but missed out last fall. It's great for our chapters to discuss recruitment and new member education, among other things because our chapters are fairly similar. Members of the Cornell Chapter are going to visit the Morrill Chapter in a few weeks.

After a successful Rush week, we extended 18 bids to interested freshman and sophomores. We had 12 people accept and come to our Pinning ceremony. The 12 pledges have very diverse backgrounds and interests from Natural Resources to Animal Science. We are very excited to guide them through the process of becoming new members of Alpha Zeta!

Cornell Chapter Winter Rush

Cornell Chapter Winter Rush

The Cornell Chapter just finished 2 fun-filled weeks of Rush! From January 17th to January 29th we held events and participated in Greek Smokers to attract new members. With activities every day like bowling, broomball, line dancing, open houses at our house, and sledding we had many people show interest in our organization. At the beginning of every semester after a long break, Rush allows our chapter to bond together while attracting new potential members. A lot of work of planning always pays off!
