New Member Pinning

Originally posted by Rheanna I. Foley

The Cornell Chapter of AZ had our semester pinning on the evening of September 12th. Pinning is the event where we begin our new member education program, and find out who our new members will be. It is a very exciting and fun event to welcome our new members. This semester we welcomed 10 new members. During the next 6 weeks, they will be learning the history of the house as well as getting to know all of our members...

The Olympics have Come to Cook Chapter

The Olympics have Come to Cook Chapter

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

On March 10th the Cook Chapter held our Big/Little Olympics. This event is specially designed to strengthen bonds between big and little pairs. We played partner games including dodgeball, ninja, tanks, and a pasta race where participants had to fill an entire cup with macaroni without using their hands. These team building games help bigs and littles get to know each other while having lots of fun. Teams also dress up according to a theme. This year's theme was animals, so we had several very creative team costumes including pigs, cats and bats!

Every year, as a rush event, Cook Chapter hosts a mixer for potential new members to come out and learn more about the fraternity and meets the brothers. Over the past few semesters, we have started hosting a midsemester mixer as well, that gives the new members yet another opportunity to get to know the brothers in a slightly less formal and intimidating setting. This mixer is filled with fun games that bigs, littles, and the entire brotherhood get to enjoy...

Last Thursday, on March 28th, 2013, members of the Florida Chapter attended a Fiesta-themed potluck dinner thrown by the pledges. Not only were the tacos and nachos delicious, but the pledges also got to meet their bigs! The pledges found their bigs by participating in an egg hunt around the northeast corner of campus. Everyone had lots of fun, and the pledges and members were excited to get to know each other!

Scavenger Hunt: Chapter Bonding for Relay for Life

Scavenger Hunt: Chapter Bonding for Relay for Life

Originally posted by Jacquelyn E. Neal

At the member meeting on Tuesday, March 19th, the Florida Chapter engaged in some fun chapter bonding in preparation for Relay for Life. The chapter was divided into teams based on their shift for the event, and asked to complete six tasks. Some of the tasks included making up an Alpha Zeta Cheer, serenading a random stranger by singing "Happy Birthday", and  taking group photos at several University of Florida landmarks. The teams had a half an hour to complete the challenge and had tons of fun while getting to know each other. Some of the pledges participated as well and got to know the members. As the second year of the scavenger hunt, hopefully it will become an annual bonding tradition for the chapter!

On February 15, 2013, The Alpha Zeta Cook Chapter welcomed its new potential members.  On this night, the new members learn about the Alpha Zeta history and what the fraternity values.  This is the night they get to really meet the brothers of the fraternity.  It is also when the new members become "littles" when they get their "bigs", the older members of the fraternity.  Once they meet their bigs, the littles are introduced to the rest of their Alpha Zeta family, which includes graduated alumni and other members of the fraternity, even faculty members!  Most families end up doing events over the semester such as hold family dinners dinners or do community service events together...

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!
