Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

Bigs and Littles came together on Saturday, October 13, 2012 to clean pumpkins in preparation for the Fall Festive, cleaned the trails in the Bamboo Forest at the Rutgers Gardens, and weeded the vegetable patch. It was a great bonding experience, and in this way brothers were able to give back to a very vital organization on in our campus community. It is tradition for our chapter to help out at the Rutgers Gardens every semester to introduce our new members to our ideal "Promotion of Agriculture.”

As part of Rutgers' Homecoming spirit week, Cook Chapter participated in the annual Bed Races. Each group was given a hospital bed and a week. The purpose was to pick a theme and decorate both your bed and your racers in that theme. Cook Chapter this year decided on the farming/Wizard of Oz theme. Our name was spelled out in corn husks on the front, while corn stalks grew out of the bed posts. Our bed rider dressed up as the wicked witch of the west, even coloring her face green. Each team has two people running and pushing the bed and one person on it. Other themes included the Rugrats, where the bed was Raptar, the Blue Man Group, Nintendo, and Christmas...

Cornell Chapter Faculty Wine and Cheese

Originally posted by Rebecca S. Terry

Every semester members of the Cornell chapter host a faculty wine and cheese. The event is a way to get to know the faculty better and show them our house. As always, there is a variety of wine and cheese to sample. Since members are from different majors it provides an opportunity to get to know professors outside of one’s major. It is also an opportunity for members to practice wearing business professional dress. Chronicler, Danielle Sanok, planned this year’s wine and cheese. The event is put on every fall semester, with a faculty dinner every spring. The wine and cheese was a great success and we look forward to the next faculty event.
