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.

NC Student Involvement fair

Originally Posted By Sara N. Fleming

On Wednesday September 4th, brothers participated in a school wide involvement fair. This fair was held in the Carmichael gym on the North Carolina State University Campus. The involvement faired aimed to provide students the opportunity to get more involved on campus with various clubs, fraternities/sororities, and various other social or academic groups. The North Carolina Chapter set up a booth with pictures and commentaries about activities and experiences of brothers in hopes of attracting students of CALS and its allied fields to consider rushing for Alpha Zeta. The brothers who participated in the event had the opportunity to communicate with the student body about what interests them and how they could possibly fit into the Alpha Zeta Brotherhood. Overall there was a lot of interest from students which was really exciting to see as brothers.

After this time of fellowship, the alumni then attend the NC State football game. Many alumni also bring their children that are enrolled at NC State or may enroll at NC State in the future.

The Alumni Tailgate Committee created a game with agricultural facts to ask visitors. Our chapter had 3 brothers on Saturday to answer questions about our chapter's upcoming events. We had a photo display of the service projects that we have participated in along with photos taken at NALC. Our scrapbook was also on display and we gave away candy
