NC Agriculture Awareness Week

Originally posted by Madeline N. Dabolt

Throughout Agriculture Awareness Week, the Brotherhood offered many events to involve students and faculty in the celebration of agriculture. We decided this year to set up on Sunday to make sure everything was good to go on Monday. The animals were settled in and the tables were set up so that the clubs throughout the College of Ag and Life Sciences could set up when they arrived on Monday morning.

NC Service with 4H students

Originally posted by Madeline N. Dabolt

On Sunday March 11th, 7 brothers went and helped at the Wake County 4H Workshop. The brothers got to speak with Middle School students about agriculture. A lot of the students were in the Horse club, but there were other students who were in the different clubs that are offered in Wake County. They played an Ag Trivia game where they had to answer various questions about agriculture. The students also got to ask the brothers questions about college and what it was all about so they would know the process to applying and what kind of majors they would be able to choose. Brother Kirby talked to them about the Pre-Vet program at NCSU.

With all the smores fixings bought, the Florida Chapter was off to another successful woodser. Every semester we take a road trip to a local campsite in the middle of what seems to be nowhere for our Woodser. We reserved a campground at Kate's Fish Camp where the ranger came out and helped set up our bonfire to make delicious smores! Members gathered around the fire to share stories about their semester and to meet the newest pledges...

The Florida Chapter of Alpha Zeta hosted the National Service Project for the second time. 10 brothers came from Florida and across the country to help in the Orlando area. The trip was an opportunity for members to work hard and make a difference in the lives of people we encountered or helped. The 10 members who came to Orlando worked extremely hard and made a huge difference in the lives of disadvantaged people in the Central Florida area!

Cook Chapter Thanksgiving

Cook Chapter Thanksgiving

Originally by Vincenzo Averello IV

On Sunday November 20, 2011, 20 brothers came together for the Cook Chapter annual Thanksgiving potluck dinner. Each person brought a dish, many using local produce that directly supports local farmers. While there brothers reminisced about the past semester while watching football (it is Thanksgiving after all). It was a comfortable night with good friends and good food.
