Cook Chapter- First Mixer

By creating different icebreaker games and mixing the new members into groups of brothers, we were able to give both the new members a chance to meet different brothers in order to learn more about what it means to be a part of the Fraternity of Alpha Zeta, while giving the brothers a chance to meet the prospective new members so that they could decide if they wanted to have a little. Overall, the prospective new members felt welcome and fun was had by both the brothers and the prospective new members.

Cook Chapter- Game Night

Game night was another event for prospective new members to learn about the Fraternity of Alpha Zeta. 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.

Everyone had fun catching up with their friends after a nice summer. The event provided potential new members the opportunity to come and learn about the Fraternity of Alpha Zeta, while at the same time provided an opportunity for the chapter to spread its awareness to the Rutgers community

New Member Retreat

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. ...

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 ...
