North Carolina Chapter Candlelight

Originally posted by Madeline N. Dabolt

After our regularly scheduled business meeting we held a candlelight ceremony in honor of our May graduates.  We all sat in a circle passing a candle around sharing our favorite memories of AZ, what Alpha Zeta has meant to us, and wishing those graduating the best of luck.  We ended with the graduating seniors telling their favorite memories and giving us advice as we finish our college careers.  It is always an emotional and meaningful ceremony.

North Carolina Chapter End of the year Potluck

Originally posted by Madeline N. Dabolt

Starting at 6:00 on April 27th before our last meeting of the semester, we all joined in Weaver Shop for a potluck.  Each brother brought a covered dish to share with everyone.  We had everything from cheesy mashed potatoes, homemade macaroni,  and baked ham to Bojangles chicken. There were some great desserts too. There were 45 brothers in attendance, several alumni, and 1 of our advisor's were there.  It was a great time to relax before the beginning of final exams and a great opportunity for fellowship with those graduating in May.

Cornell Chapter Helps Repair Raised Beds

Cornell Chapter Helps Repair Raised Beds

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

On April 30th, 7 members of the Cornell Chapter went to Woodsedge Apartments, a retirement apartment community near campus, to help get their raised bed gardens ready for planting. Two years ago, the community raised money and built around 15 raised beds for the residents to plant. Each resident gets their own bed to keep for the summer. Beds are 24” high instead of the usual 12” so they do not have to bend over as far. We joined many residents and community members and spent the morning doing repairs to their beds. We even found out one of the residents is an AZ Alumni from Michigan State!

Swing-a-Thon

Originally posted by Madeline N. Dabolt

On April 12th, twenty of our brothers participated in Sigma Alpha sorority's annual Swing-a-Thon.  This event took place all day on the brickyard.  The participants payed $10 to swing for ten minutes.  The money that was raised by many of the organizations at NCSU and students went to NC Farm Bureau's Ag in the classroom.  The money raised is used to give mini-grants to K-8th grade teachers to incorporate agriculture into their curriculum.  Overall, the event was a big success and a great opportunity for the students to support agriculture and the future of our society.

On April 8th, North Carolina State University hosted their annual Relay For Life on Lee Field.  18 of our brothers went out and supported Cancer research in hopes to raise money.  As an on-site fundraiser we had Cornhole boards put out so people could pay to play.  The event did not last too long into the night like it was supposed to because of bad weather.  By 11 o'clock we had to take down everything and leave.  Everyone that participated in this event had a blast even when it started to rain.

Initiation is a tradition of Alpha Zeta chapters around the country. Each semester each chapter initiates their pledge class. This semester the UF chapter of AZ initiated 21 new members! With pledges, their sponsors, officers, and members, there was around 50 people in attendance! The banquet was one of our best! It was held outdoors at the Haile Plantation Gold and Country Club and planned by our pledge master, Sara Molloy. The singing fraternity of Phi Mu Alpha came and serenaded the graduating girls that were in attendance. Our student advisor, Mark Marcojos, was also recognized for his 10 year service to the UF chapter of AZ.
