This road clean up was very exciting because we had 2 brothers that have never been to our adopted road before. We spent an hour cleaning our road both down and back. I was amazed at how many people stopped by to thank us for cleaning up in their community. All in all, we picked up 2 bags of trash and cannot wait for our next one!

Florida Chapter Trivia Night

Florida Chapter Trivia Night

Last Tuesday night, March 11 we participated in a local Applebee's trivia night as a social event. We figured our difference in majors would make us a competitive team that would do well. We had some good rounds and not so good rounds. (The first category was Disney movie: Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century. Needless to say we got off to a rough start) However, in the end we all had a great time and realized quirky traits about each other. A great time was had by all, and there will definitely ...

The Southernmost Chapter!

The Southernmost Chapter!

First off the Ernest Hemingway house, where we ran into some polydactyl felines (six-toed cats)! Then we moseyed on down to the southernmost point of the continental US and struck pose for the camera at the colorful, concrete buoy denoting only 90 miles to Cuba. Feeling parched from the afternoon sun and the long walk, some of our brothers decided to purchase coconut ...

Sunset with Brothers

Yet, all the theatrics pale in comparison to the awesome beauty that is the "southernmost" sunset. Fourteen of our brothers traveled to Key West for a week of service in both the marine coasts and local community. I, among the 14, most enjoyed the group of us experiencing the lasts moments of the day together in such a wonderful place. The sunset ...

Brothers of the Florida chapter spent a day giving back to the community of Key West during our service trip to Key West. St. Paul's Episcopal Church lies in the heart of Duval Street, the main street of Key West. Although the church has undergone several renovations, it has been in the same spot since 1831. This church is both a landmark and a sanctuary for the natives of Key West. One of the days during the trip was dedicated to giving back to the community of Key West. My brothers and I spent a day beautifying this historic landmark. I was involved with painting the porch of the antebellum house once used to house generations of priests, but is now used as a community gathering for various events, such as book clubs and children’s choir. I also assisted my fellow brothers in wiping down the pews of the open-air church. Other brothers focused on cleaning up the grounds by raking and cutting down old palm leaves. Needless to say, it felt great giving back to this historic community, and even more to such a beautiful and sacred church.

Devil's Milhopper is a National Natural Landmark, a sinkhole with a few trails right here in Alachua county. It was a gorgeous day and our members had a blast adventuring together.

It was a great time for everyone despite the cold weather of ...

New Member Retreat

This semester’s new member retreat, held on February 8th, was a more laid back welcoming event on the morning after Big/Little Night.

The primary purpose of this event was to establish a stronger connection between new members since they were all now officially committed to the Fraternity of Alpha Zeta. ...
