Big/Little Night

Originally posted by Halli M. James

On September 20, Cook AZ held our Big/Little night. This event gave our new member class a chance to learn a lot about the history of our local chapter and national AZ. New members were then paired with their big brothers who help them throughout the process of joining AZ. New members also have the chance to meet all of the active brothers and many of the alumni. Alumni and brothers share stories of their personal AZ experiences and really get the chance to welcome in the new member class.

Alumni Reunion Picnic

Originally posted by Rheanna I. Foley

On August 10th the alumni of the Cornell Chapter held their annual reunion picnic. This year it was held at Jim and Lois Carter’s cottage on the banks of Seneca Lake. Three active members of our chapter, Rheanna Foley, Rain Hennessey, and Nick Culver, went to the picnic to help set up and keep everything running smoothly. It was a great opportunity for us to improve relations with our alumni. It was also a great opportunity for the alumni to gather and maintain their connection with AZ.

Alumni Event has become a tradition at Alpha Zeta's Cook Chapter. We respect our alumni and are honored that they take time out of their lives to meet the new members and reconnect with brothers every semester over a delicious meal. This semester, Alumni Event was held at the East Grand Buffet on March 9, 2013 from 4pm-7pm. 30 or so alumni and about 50 brothers attended the event. We even saw a few older alumni come back that had lost touch with the chapter for several years. It was a wonderful evening filled with funny stories being told about the "good old days" and many of the new members left the event with a feeling of family and home...

Originally posted by Jacquelyn E. Neal

On Saturday, March 30, 2013, members, alumni, and friends of the members of the Florida Chapter arrived at SeaWorld in Orlando bright and early for a behind-the-scenes tour. We got to see quarantined manatees and turtles, many of which were being treated for cold stress, and a pilot whale named 300 that is being rehabbed after developing scoliosis. We also got to see some of the transport vehicles used in rescuing animals throughout Florida and the labs where SeaWorld monitors water quality and processes animal blood samples.
