Cook Chapter Climbs the Rock Wall

Cook Chapter Climbs the Rock Wall

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

On February 10th, a group of brothers from the cook chapter decided that after 4-whole years at Rutgers, it was time to experience the Rutgers Rock Wall. Brothers learned how to properly tie a climbing knot and for many, it was their first time ever scaling a surface 180 degrees from the ground. It was a great bonding experience because two of the brothers in the group were belay certified and literally had the life line of another brother in her hand. Brothers had to trust one anther and listen for shouts of encouragements when times were tough. All of the brothers made it to the top of the wall at least once during the visit.

Come one! Come all!!! The Cook AZ brothers always support each other, and supporting each other in career goals and fitness goals is no exception. Our current chancellor, Becca Melvin, is an exercise science major who works at the Cook Recreation Center and taught one of her first RU Fit classes on Friday, February 1, 2013. This class is full of insanity based high intensity interval training 45 min work out consisting of jogging, burpees, squats, planks, and cardio work outs. Brothers came out to support her and participate in her class, which was quite a success. Getting into the spirit of things, they even made amazing gym attire. A chapter that works out together, stays strong together, and the pictures speak louder than words.

Cook Brothers Study Abroad - Farewell

Cook Brothers Study Abroad - Farewell

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

The brothers of Alpha Zeta Cook Chapter have always been curious individuals with a desire to experience new cultures and different environments. Two of our brothers have recently returned from Greece and Australia after completing a semester abroad, and brought back with them a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with the rest of the chapter. Now we bid farewell to another brother for the upcoming semester as she will be spending her semester in the Netherlands. Though saying goodbye is always difficult, it is not for forever and we wish her only the best in her travels and hope that she gets to experience all the history and culture the Netherlands have to offer. The picture above is a handful of the brothers that attended the farewell get together showing the true camaraderie of the brotherhood.

AZ Cornell-Rush Week Broomball

AZ Cornell-Rush Week Broomball

Originally posted by Sara K. Orlowski

It’s the first week of the semester and the second week of rush and everyone at the Cornell Chapter knows what that means…BROOMBALL! Over the years, broomball, which for those of you who don’t know is sort of like hockey without skates, has become a tradition for the house and a way to recruit new members. Who doesn’t enjoy sliding around on ice, in the middle of winter, especially in upstate NY!

On Saturday, October 27th, Cook Chapter gathered on Busch Campus to celebrate Rutgers Homecoming. Before the game, the chair of Alumni Committee obtained a permit to park on Busch and organized a tailgate for brothers, pledges and alumni alike. After the tailgate was over, everyone went to the High Point Stadium to watch the Rutgers Scarlet Knights compete against Kent State. Unfortunately, this was Rutgers' first loss of the season, but everyone was in high spirits regardless.
