Winter Ice Skating-Cornell Chapter

Winter Ice Skating-Cornell Chapter

Originally posted by Sara K. Orlowski

After enduring a week of bitterly cold temperatures to and from class, what better way to enjoy the first weekend after the beginning of classes than to clear the snow off a local pond and go ice skating and play some impromptu hockey? On the last Saturday of January, the last day of prolonged single digit temperatures, a group of members scouted out a local pond rumored to be a good place for skating. After overcoming the challenge posed by finding a pond covered in snow on the edge of the field, they cleared it off as much they could before giving in to the temptation of skating, brought out the hockey sticks and a puck and began a game. Exhausted and cold, they made their way home for warm mugs of hot chocolate. This activity was a great way to build brotherhood among the members of the fraternity.

After our new member education activity last week (2/17) where our new members were quizzed on their knowledge about the fraternity, they were surprised by the revelation of their Big Brother and Big Sister. Each new member was given gifts related to their lineage and photos with their bigs and lineages were taken. This event creates lasting fellowship!

Members of the Florida Chapter got together from 6 PM to 9 PM on February 23 to help makeover Idylwild Elementary, a local Gainesville elementary school. They were joined by members of the UF chapter of American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers (ASABE). Members worked on landscaping the outdoor areas of the school, repainting walls and picnic benches, and laying new grass outside. It was a great night of bonding with members and new friends in ASABE, while coming together to help out a great local cause!
