Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

New Member Education Week is held every semester after candidates for membership are chosen. This week started on February 10th and lasted until Friday February 15th.  The purpose of Candidate Education Week is to teach perspective brothers the importance of teamwork to accomplish a common goal. The candidates are presented with a series of challenges in which they must learn about agriculture, find out information about the fraternity’s history as well as current activities, get to know current brothers, introduce themselves to alumni, and come together as a team. Candidates find out how close brothers are, and brothers have an opportunity to get to know candidates...

On Saturday, October 27th, Cook Chapter gathered on Busch Campus to celebrate Rutgers Homecoming. Before the game, the chair of Alumni Committee obtained a permit to park on Busch and organized a tailgate for brothers, pledges and alumni alike. After the tailgate was over, everyone went to the High Point Stadium to watch the Rutgers Scarlet Knights compete against Kent State. Unfortunately, this was Rutgers' first loss of the season, but everyone was in high spirits regardless.

Helping a Brother in Need

Helping a Brother in Need

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

One of our Alpha Zeta alumni from Rutgers, Devon Craft, and her family were victims of Hurricane Sandy.  She reached out to the Cook Chapter of Alpha Zeta, here at Rutgers, for volunteers to assist her family in removing debris and cleaning up her home. They needed to dispose of belongings, mold, and throw out destroyed pieces of their house. We extended this need for help out to the brotherhood in hopes that some brothers would be able to volunteer their time over the weekend to help Devon and her family.

On December 7th, the brothers of Cook Chapter celebrated the end of the semester with Winter Formal. Fifty-three brothers and alumni spent formal at the Hyatt Regency in New Brunswick, along with their guests.  Brothers dressed to impress in their formal best, attended a banquet-style dinner and enjoyed dancing the night away while the DJ played their favorite music.  Certain brothers were given awards, which included the brother with the most service hours, best big/little pair, hardest working brother and unsung heroes.

The Big Chill is an annual charity 5k race run by Rutgers Programming. Each participant was required to donate a $10 toy for homeless children. About 8,000 people participated and close to 9,500 toys were donated. With the extra donations, Rutgers was able to purchase 350 winter coats for the children as well. Most of our brothers and alumni ran the race, but there were some who walked the three miles, or volunteered (starting at 6am) to help run the race. The event was a huge success.

Family Dinners

Family Dinners

Every member of the fraternity has a family made up of their bigs, grandbigs, cousins and so on. In our chapter, it is a tradition for each family to have a family dinner, normally once per semester to hang out, eat good food. It allows alumni who attend to get to know the new brothers in their family more closely. They share good food, games like charades and taboo, and often times a good movie is thrown in the mix. Below are a few pictures of families during their dinner celebrations.
