UF Cards for Pediatric Caner Patients Service 12/1/11

UF Cards for Pediatric Caner Patients Service 12/1/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter joined up with Friends for Life who represents the annual Hearts for the Holidays event. The event encourages UF students, faculty and staff to make holiday cards to pediatric cancer patients who will spend the holidays in the hospital. They attempt to send cards to one hospital in every state. Hearts for the Holidays gives university students and our members the chance to provide support for children fighting cancer. Our chapter benefited by coming together in order to make the lives of others better during the time of year where hope is in the area. The cards were delivered to the Friends for Life representatives to distribute to the hospitals.

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter participated in a 5K walk/run to benefit the Gainesville Fisher House Foundation. The event was put on with the help of the Florida Ag Econ Club. The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America’s military in their time of need. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform as well as the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by both the Departments of Defense and the Veterans Administration...

On October 13th, Alpha Zeta Cook Chapter participated in the University-wide Charity Bedrace. About 90 different clubs, fraternities and sororities from all across Rutgers entered the competition, with each team decorating a bed and having 4 members race it down one of the main streets on campus. Cook Chapter decorated their bed to represent our agricultural roots, and team members raced as a farmer and her pigs. The entry fee for the race was a collection of hats and gloves that would go to children in local schools. Cook Chapter collected about 40 sets of hats and gloves to donate to the cause.

Cornell Chapter Hosts Semesterly Ag Day

Cornell Chapter Hosts Semesterly Ag Day

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

Every semester the Cornell Chapter hosts "Ag Day" on the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Quad. Our event this semester was held on 10/14. While Cornell may be the land grant university in our state, sadly many students do not even know that Cornell still has agricultural departments. We hold this event to both educate the Cornell Community, as well as to raise money for Tompkins County 4-H. Our event this semester was run as it has been in the past, with a fistulated cow for cow bingo, food, tractors, sheep, and campus agricultural organizations and clubs...

Another gorgeous day in Gainesville turned into a chilly night at a Gator game. Members of the Florida Chapter met up earlier in the week to get football tickets together for the game against the University of Alabama. Everyone one was in the seats and ready for the 8 p.m. kick off. The stadium was the loudest it has ever been even though the Gators lost members stayed until the very last second. The Florida Chapter even visited with some fans during halftime taking a picture with a gator and die-hard fans they found in the stands. Everyone enjoyed the game and the opportunity to hang out and be with friends even if it was a tad colder for us Florida members because "in all kind of weather we'll all stick together for F-L-O-R-I-D-A!”

Our intramural indoor soccer team for the Fall semester had their second game of our season. Though we may not have a perfect record members enjoy coming out other week on Wednesday for our games. Luckily for the ladies, we had extra people for substitutions but our three hard working men stuck it out the whole game. We had some new players this week that were just learning the rules of the game and they seemed to be the stars of the field. The game was a tough game but our members stuck through it and gave it their all. Even though we lost our members had a blast and can't wait for the next game.

At UF, football seems to be everyone's favorite past time. Saturdays are meant for tailgating and cheering on your favorite team. Members of the Florida Chapter met up on Wednesday to pick up tickets together for the game against the University of Alabama Birmingham. The members were in their seats and reading for the 7p.m. kickoff. They gator chomped and cheered the whole game as the Gators shut out UAB 39-0. Everyone looked forward to the game and the opportunity to bond over an awesome night and a little singing too!
