AZ Cornell at the Ithaca Polar Plunge

Posted By Sara K. Orlowski, Yesterday
With the first days of spring arriving, it’s a perfect time for a swim in Cayuga Lake! This year 9 brave
members of our chapter formed a team to participate in the Ithaca Polar Plunge on March 22nd. The
Polar Plunge is a special event in which teams gather together to run into the frigid waters of Cayuga 
Lake to raise support for the Special Olympics. Our team raised around $1000! We were so excited for 
the event and wore very brightly colored outfits to the plunge. One member even displayed his love 
for Alpha Zeta with an AZ speedo. Needless to say, we were one of the most enthusiastic teams at the 
plunge. After “freezing for a reason” we all gathered together at the Glenwood Pines restaurant for 
some hearty burgers and warm soup. We can’t wait for next year’s plunge!

Posted By Grace E. Poling, Sunday, April 13, 2014
Seminar 1's purpose was to develop the leadership skills of our new members, allow them to bond and grow as a team, and learn about their personal character. This seminar is a vital part of bringing new members into our chapter and is essential to the personal development of our incoming members. Our new members build a bond with each other by participated in a high ropes course, leadership activities, and information sessions.  In order to put on this event time and funds had to be reserved to rent rooms at a camp,  activities had to be planned, speakers lined up and informational packets had to be put together for the members.

Cruzamentos: Contemporary Art In Brazil

Posted By Grace E. Poling, Sunday, April 13, 2014

Our university regularly has art exhibits available for students and the public to enjoy.  This spring the major exhibit has been a Brazil presentation.  In order to promote diversity, and reminisce on trips to Brazil the Diversity Committee set up a date and time to visit The Wexner to see the contemporary Brazilian art.  The three students who attended recognized pieces of art from their time in Brazil.  This recognition brought sweet memories, and appreciation for the country.  Also, most of the students involved in our chapter of AZP do not spend a great deal of time in art exhibits, so the chapter benefitted by experiencing the culture of two different countries.

The Florida Chapter Inducts 34 New Brothers

Posted By Carolyn A. Huntley, Wednesday, April 09, 2014
Tuesday night brothers of the Florida Chapter gathered for the Induction ceremony of our spring 2014 pledge class. We started with the presentation of the pledge class's paddles which was then followed by the introduction of our guest speaker, Gustav Paulay, who gave a talk on invertebrate diversity on coral reefs. After the talk we enjoyed a nice sit down dinner with many of our alumni from all around our university's campus. Conversations varied from two alumni who were hobbyist flyers connecting over their love of planes to colony collapse disorder in apiaries. After dinner and dessert, the ceremony was held - filling half the ballroom! Afterwards there was time to reflect on our pledge class's accomplishments and mingle with our faculty and deans. We had an amazing time and are so proud of newest brothers

Cornell Chapter Initiates 14 New Members

Posted By Sara K. Orlowski, Tuesday, April 08, 2014
The Cornell Chapter is very proud to welcome 14 new members! We recently just held our weekend
chapter initiation event. Because our chapter is both a social and honors fraternity, our members are first initiated into our chapter, and then into the National Organization. Our current new members will be Nationally Initiated later this spring. Our chapter initiation is a weekend-long event that starts on Friday evening and concludes on Sunday morning. It starts with a ceremony on Friday night and
continues with many social events throughout the day on Saturday. One of them being watching one of our house movies, Heartbreak Ridge, over dinner. Alumni also came to the house to join in the festivities. Congratulations to our new members!

Cal-Epsilon lAZer tag activity night

Posted By Jodi L. Raley, Wednesday, April 02, 2014
Following a busy day of the Alpha Zeta, Cal-Epsilon fundraiser at the Fresno State Panda Express and an informational meeting, members headed to No Surrender Laser Tag for a fun-filled night! Team Alpha, made up of active members and officers, faced off against Team Zeta, made up of prospective members and chapter Censor Brittany, in an epic match.  After 30 minutes of an intense laser tag game, Team Alpha prevailed.  It was a great opportunity for member bonding and to relieve some stress as members face the upcoming weeks of mid-terms!

Florida Chapter's Big-Little Reveal

Posted By Carolyn A. Huntley, Thursday, March 27, 2014
This past Tuesday, brothers of the Florida Chapter gathered in costume to meet their new Littles. The Littles dressed in costumes they were assigned to match their Big. When everyone came together, each Big and Little pair had to find one another in a sea of cartoon characters, famous couples and commonly know pairs (like PB&J). Then everyone sat together for a Pinterest Inspired Potluck that the pledge class had arranged. A great time was had by all and everyone looked great in their costumes!

Studying Away

Posted By Angely S. Jimenez, Wednesday, March 26, 2014
Brothers from AZ joined together at Marston Science Library last night to tackle the daunting subject of Microbiology. We all sat around for hours quizzing each other on the material and discussing topics that some of us didn't fully understand. Being able to study in a group of intelligent peers allowed me to absorb the material and feel more confident to take my exam. We also munched on some tasty brownies and washed it down with green tea. It was a great bonding experience, as well as form of expanding our knowledge and upholding the highest principles of scholarship. We also got to show of our new hats that came in either camo print or white!

Florida Chapter Key West Service Trip: Dinners

Posted By Elizabeth B. Edwards, Sunday, March 23, 2014
Every night of our spring break trip in Key West the entire group of 14 brothers cooked and ate dinner together. Some of the meals we prepare together were spaghetti and meatballs, tacos, and hamburgers and hotdogs. Although everyone looked forward to the delicious meals each night, we all were even more excited for the bonding that took place around our one dinner table. Each night we took turns reflecting on our favorite part of the service project from that day, as well as any interesting stories we had. Many of the nights we found ourselves still sitting around the table laughing and discussing both intellectual and funny stories with one another for hours after we finished eating. All 14 members got along great and all became a group of close friends who bonded over food and fellowship.

Florida's Key West Service Trip: Woman Key Clean-up

Posted By Carolyn A. Huntley, Wednesday, March 19, 2014
Alex S., a current pledge in the Florida Chapter, recounts a day of cleaning Woman Key during our recent Service Trip to Key West:

"On our third day of service in Key West, we boated out to the island Woman Key to do a beach clean up. Woman Key is a nature preserve owned by the Key West National Wildlife Refuge and is closed to the public for wildlife habitat protection. As a result, all the marine debris that was found and collected on the island had been washed up from the ocean. We collected trash that could potentially cause entanglement, or that could brake down in smaller pieces and potentially be confused as food to marine animals, such as plastic and styrofoam. During out beach clean up we recovered copious amounts of plastic bottles, plastic bins, hundreds of pounds of trap line, and even a large 18-wheeler tire! At the end of the day we collected over 500 pounds of garbage." - Alex S.
