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.

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.

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.

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

It coincidentally was also Founder's Day, so we had a little celebration with cookies, chips, and subs. Each pledge had to complete 5 hours of service, social, and fundraising each. Their service projects varied from working with monkeys in a Monkey Sanctuary to ...
