AZ Puerto Rico Chapter: Movie Night

Posted By Jaileen Rivera Montes De Oca, Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Stress is high and mid terms are on their way plus a lot more of other work, so as a way to unwind a little before the pressure of collage and obligations catch up to us, the AZ Puerto Rico Chapter decided to make a Movie Night to share among friends and enjoy a few laughs. Seven members participated and shared the laughter while watching Mall Cop, and then later followed Will Smith on his pursuit of law-breaking robots in I, Robot. We shared popcorn and Doritos in Bosque 51, Mayagüez and talked about anything and everything as we enjoyed the movies and the company.

Cornell Chapter: Beef-A-Palouza!

Posted By Natasha A. Bartolotta, Tuesday, September 23, 2014
Updated: Tuesday, September 23, 2014

Alpha Zeta at Cornell is so excited to announce the successful completion of our first Beef-A-Palouza event! We coordinated with the Beef Checkoff to hold an amazing educational and fun-filled day all about beef. On a beautiful, sunny Friday we spent all day outside on the Ag Quad engaging as many students as possible in our many activities and booths. There was hay bale tossing, roping, cows, free beef jerkey, and educational booths where students could guess what products contained beef by-products or name as many beef cattle breeds as they could. We even filled an entire poster board with sticky notes on student's reasons why they loved beef! At the end of the day there was definitely a lot of "Beef Buzz" going around. The afternoon was dedicated to a grill-off competition in which 14 teams tried to grill the best steak in 45 minutes. The grill-off was judged by some very hungry professors who judged on taste, creativity, and appearance. Our winners went home with a brand new grill and the top teams all won a lot of beef! To top it all off, we ended the night with a BBQ brisket dinner followed by a talk given by Dr. Jude Capper. She spoke about  sustainability in the beef industry and engaged in a lot of discussion with attendees of the talk. Overall,, the event was a huge success and a ton of fun! We met our goal of improving Cornell students view of the beef industry and loved working with the Beef Checkoff. We are now planning to make a grill-off competition an AZ tradition for our chapter.

Puerto Rico Chapter: International Shoreline Clean Up 2014

Posted By Jaileen Rivera Montes De Oca, Monday, September 22, 2014

Puerto Rico Chapter’s participated in the International Shoreline Clean Up 2014, helping along with many other volunteers from Scuba Dogs and Campus Verde, to clean and count the trash lining the Jobos Beach in Isabela. Seven members of the Chapter participated in this national cleaning on Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 7:30a.m. to 12:00m.  We were able to collect around 90 pounds of trash plus three tires, from cars and bicycles. However, life can’t be all work and no play, so after reporting to Scuba Dogs, the members of Puerto Rico’s Chapter went exploring the oceanfront view.  Though rain cut our exploration short, we moved on to fraternized and eat at Pasatiempos in Moca, enjoying good food, different anecdotes and opinions and views on multiple subjects.

NC CORRAL Service Project

Posted By Jamie L. DeRose, Monday, September 22, 2014

The North Carolina Chapter completed its first service project of the new year.  Last weekend, we met at CORRAL Riding Academy.  CORRAL is a non-profit organization that helps at-risk girls by providing riding lessons, therapy, tutoring, and bonding experiences with horses.

Sixteen of our Brothers spent part of their Sunday clearing a trail to ride horses, mucking stalls, and mowing lawns.  It was a humbling experience, and we were all grateful to be around each other and the beautiful horses!

Updated: Sunday, September 14, 2014

Cornell's chapter of Alpha Zeta has just ended a very fun and exciting rush week. We had a number of events at our house and out in the greater Ithaca area. Interested potential new members joined us for events such as barbecues at the house, trivia night at the Nines restaurant, trips to Purity Ice Cream, and an afternoon at Taughannock State Park. It was a great way for members to bond with each other and meet new people as well. After a fun start to the semester, we are looking forward to the rest of the year!

Updated: Saturday, September 13, 2014
The University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez Chapter had a new officers welcoming dinner on September 7 at Chilli's. Last years officers told anecdotes about their experiences as officers and made many recommendations as to what we can do differently this year. Dr. Lizette Gonzales Gill and Dr. Angel A. Custodio with his wife came to  the dinner, they have always been of great help to us and we can always count on them for any support and guidance we need. The dinner also helped the new officers bond and get to know each other better, we also talked about a few activities and our plans for this year. The dinner was a complete success and everybody had a great time.

Posted By Jared M. Ashworth, Tuesday, September 02, 2014

Nine members participated in The Ohio State University's annual day of community service called Community Commitment. The nine members along with other students were bussed from the university to a community location. Our group went to Ark House Inc.

While participating at Ark House for 3 hours, we helped with internal house cleaning as well as various landscaping duties including weeding, raking, composting, and mulching.

NC College Connections

Posted By Jamie L. DeRose, Wednesday, August 20, 2014

The North Carolina Chapter participated in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) College Connections event yesterday.   At NCSU, Wolfpack Welcome Week is an annual week where students can meet new friends, experience campus life, and learn about clubs and organizations.  Each year, CALS hosts a College Connections event during this week, and Alpha Zeta participates in the Club Fair.  At the fair, we manned a booth and spoke with students who were interested in learning what Alpha Zeta has to offer.  The event is mostly focused on incoming freshmen and underclassmen, so we were able to meet a lot of fresh faces.  This event was also the first time many Brothers had seen each other since last school year, so it was a perfect opportunity to catch up with each other and enjoy the beautiful North Carolina weather before classes started!
