This way one could walk along the sides of the key without interfering with the landscaping or mulch layer. The landscaping of ...

First all five officers participated in a breakfast at I-hop at 8:30 am with one of the advisors who shared her experiences as a brother and gave us advice for the upcoming here. Next all five officers participated in various tasks from 10 am to 3 pm at the newly built Hunt Library on NC state Universitiy’s centennial campus. The officers separately and collaboratively created lists of goals and comments regarding what activities they thought needed updating or reorganizing. The officers were given opportunities to work together to complete other fun tasks such as a leadership style/personality test and then Chancellor Alvey led us in a discussion to prepare us for this semester.  We discussed how we have worked well together, what steps we could take to improve teamwork, as well as details for close events.  For a lunch break and some general social time the officers enjoyed lunch at Mitch’s Tavern on Hillsborough Street.

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

On April 15th, Sigma Alpha hosted their eleventh annual Swing-a-Thon fundraiser.  Fifteen brothers signed up to swing for fifteen minutes on the Brickyard. Each brother paid $10 to swing on the porch swing and received a t-shirt. Alpha Zeta helped to sponsor the event by donating over $100, so our name is printed on the shirts. The revenue from Swing-a-Thon goes towards Agriculture in the Classroom programs.
