Cook Chapter- Installment Ritual 1

Just like every semester, we held our first installment ritual at the Rutgers Gardens, which is our current philanthropy project. In accordance with the traditions of Alpha Zeta, we welcomed the new members by exposing them to the entire chapter as well as our active Cook Alumni Association. After meeting the entire Cook Chapter Family, the new members were introduced to their big brothers, who would guide them through the pledging process and help them feel welcomed into our organization. At the end, we welcomed with open arms the Omega Class!

Cook Chapter- Applebee's Night

Applebee’s night was a huge success this semester! It took place after the first potential new member meeting and provided good quality time for both the potential new members and the brothers. There was a great turnout of people with about 30 people there, despite the fact that it was late on a weeknight. Brothers who were able to drive were generous by carpooling everyone who wanted to go. Once there, everyone genuinely seemed to have a good time eating good food and meeting one another. Since there was so many of us, it was impossible to get everyone seated together but people made the extra effort to walk around and introduce themselves or sit at other tables for a bit. It proved to be a great night.

Game night strengthened the chapter by allowing for a fun, relaxed time where new members could meet the brothers in a less formal setting during the week. Brothers worked to reserve the room and kindly supplied their own board games or video games for everyone to use for the night. It was a smaller, more intimate event where everyone could hang out and let the potential new members acquainted with the people who make up the chapter.

This was the Cook Chapter's opportunity to make a first impression on potential new members and answer any questions about who we are or what we do.

New Member Retreat

This semester’s new member retreat, held on February 8th, was a more laid back welcoming event on the morning after Big/Little Night.

The primary purpose of this event was to establish a stronger connection between new members since they were all now officially committed to the Fraternity of Alpha Zeta. ...

S'mores Indoors!

Originally Posted By Natasha A. BartolottaPosted By Halli M. James

At the beginning of every semester, Cook AZ has an event called S’mores Night where we welcome everyone back from the break and brothers get to socialize and meet with potential new members. This spring it was held on January 23rd. The event usually takes place outside around a bonfire with lots of chocolate, crackers, and marshmallows to eat, but due to the mountains of snow we’ve gotten here in Jersey, we thought it was a better idea to have S’mores Night indoors. Although there ...
