Celebrating Valentine's Day by Chomping Cancer!

Originally posted by Jacquelyn E. Neal

The members of the Florida Chapter have gotten very close this week while preparing for the annual Valentine's Day rose sale! Members spent Tuesday and Wednesday preparing the roses for the sale. Today, they delivered bouquets all over campus and sold roses at the student union. The proceeds from the sale today will go towards the UF Alpha Zeta Relay for Life team, benefiting the American Cancer Society. We are excited to Chomp Cancer! this March, and are continuing to fund-raise as a team!...

Florida Chapter Corn Maze

Florida Chapter Corn Maze

On a spooky, clear Friday night in November, members of the Florida Chapter of Alpha Zeta decided to attend one of Gainesville’s corn mazes together. The Newberry corn maze attraction consisted of a scary corn maze, a haunted house and a frightful hay ride which had all the members jumping in excitement and fear! Everyone got to know each other’s "scare level” which helped bring members together, especially in the corn maze where they had to stick together to "get out alive”. It was a fun night overall.

Florida Chapter Family Day 2012

The weekend of November 16th was deemed Family weekend for the Florida Chapter of Alpha Zeta.  Members attended Woodser on Friday night complete with a huge bonfire, smores galore, and plenty of jokes and laughter.  It was a great night to get to know each and every one of our members a little more.  We even had a few esteemed alumni attend!  We continued family weekend the next day by having a BBQ tailgate before the UF vs. Jacksonville State football game.  Many members had family members come and it was a great time to eat some delicious food, meet the families of members, and get pumped for a Gator win!  Family Weekend was a huge hit this Fall, and we are excited to continue the tradition in upcoming years!

Florida Chapter Initiates Fall 2012 Pledges

Originally posted by Audrey S. Knickerbocker

Last Tuesday, November 20th, the Florida Chapter of Alpha Zeta had the privilege of initiating 10 new members.  The evening started out with mingling and networking between sponsors, pledges, and others in attendance.  Initiation rituals were conducted and the pledges became official members of the Florida Chapter of Alpha Zeta.  It was an exciting night for everyone in attendance.  Pledges finally saw all their hard work during the semester pay off.  The evening continued with a delicious dinner, speeches, and awards for the pledges.  All officers in attendance voted on the best pledge paddle, and that person was recognized with a gift basket of goodies!  All the pledge paddles looked great, so it was a tough decision!  We were unexpectedly honored to have the dean of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, Dean Balser, in attendance for the ceremonies.  All in all, it was a joyous night for everyone and we wish the best of luck to our new members of the Florida Chapter!

Florida Chapter Basketball Concessions Fundraiser

Florida Chapter Basketball Concessions Fundraiser

Originally posted by Nicolyn J. Rohrer

This past Thursday, November 1, 2012, the brethren of the Florida Chapter united to raise funds for their chapter. Eight brothers worked together in a concession stand at the University of Florida verses Nebraska-Kearney men’s basketball game Thursday night at 7pm. During this fundraiser brothers set up the concession stand, sold and served the concessions, and cleaned up after the game. The brother’s were lucky enough to be assigned to a very fun and interesting advisor named Oprah. Being their first time working a concession stand for Centerplate, the company that runs the concessions for these events, Oprah was both very fun and a tremendous help, even though it was her second day on the job. All in all, the event was a tremendous success and the Gator’s won 101 to 71.  Go Gators!

UF Road Cleanups 9/12/12, 9/24/12, 9/29/12

Originally posted by Tivia I. Rouland

The Florida Chapter of Alpha Zeta cleaned up our adopted road. Three road cleanups were completed over the course of three weeks. The members that participated in the road cleanups were very willing to clean up our community despite the many bugs that attacked us along the way! Not only was it hot most of the days, it started to drizzle one of the days. The service chair provided all the materials needed to clean. Among those materials were orange reflective safety vests. Wearing our orange reflective safety vests made us feel official! We put recyclables in one bag and trash in another...

UF Earth Day Service and Social 4/22/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter celebrated Earth Day by giving back to the community. Members cleaned up our adopted road with the help of some of our newest additions. The members that participated in the clean-up did not mind taking time out of their schedule, as the last 3 days of classes came closer and made graduation ever closer for some or the next year of school for others, to pick up the trash and get it off the street. The road clean-up was planned for the morning to avoid the heat of the day and to be completed when the Horticulture Departments Earth Day event started...
