Big Little Olympics

Big Little Olympics

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

Sunday, October 7th, 2012, Alpha Zeta Families (primarily bigs, littles and pledge parents) got together to participate in a fun competitive event. Games included dodge ball, the blob (One person was "it” and had to tag people and when they did they hand to link hands and could only tag people if they stayed linked. With each new member tagged the "blob” grew until only one person won, who was dubbed the winner.) and the crab game (Participants paired up and one person in each pair stayed on the floor and closed their eyes and their partner had to direct them to the dodge balls randomly dispersed throughout the room to then throw at the opposing teams. The last pair that had not been "hit” was dubbed the winner). It was a great time and bigs and littles especially benefited from the bonding experience.

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.

Anti-Hazing Week

Anti-Hazing Week

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

During Anti-Hazing week at Rutgers University brothers and new members attended various workshops to learn about what hazing is and how to prevent the spread of it at Rutgers University. New members were also encouraged to attend a workshop sponsored by the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Affairs where they were taught the value of brotherhood and the negative effects and consequences of hazing. It was an information week for us all and we gained several ideas about fun bonding events that we could carry out in our own new member semester, one of which included a bake-off, an idea the brotherhood really enjoyed.

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

As part of the rush process, Cook chapter organized a card making event. On Thursday, September 20, potential new members would come to the campus center, where brothers would be providing all sorts of materials. The Halloween Cards made were sent to the children in the St. Peter’s Hospital Pediatric Unit. Cook Chapter tries to make cards for the children for all occasions, including Valentine’s Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas for the children. We hope that our contributions make their days a little brighter.

Movie Night

Wednesday, December 12, 2012 brothers convened at a fellow brother’s house to de-stress during the last two weeks of the semester, also known as Finals time. In addition to enjoying the forever popular movie "Despicable Me,” they also had a bake off, in which members brought baked goods and everyone in attendance voted at the end of the night. The winner was awarded a $10 Dunkin Donuts gift card, so he/she would have a plentiful supply of coffee during this stressful time.

Florida Chapter Family Day 2012

The weekend of November 16th was deemed Family weekend for the Florida Chapter of Alpha Zeta.  Members attended Woodser on Friday night complete with a huge bonfire, smores galore, and plenty of jokes and laughter.  It was a great night to get to know each and every one of our members a little more.  We even had a few esteemed alumni attend!  We continued family weekend the next day by having a BBQ tailgate before the UF vs. Jacksonville State football game.  Many members had family members come and it was a great time to eat some delicious food, meet the families of members, and get pumped for a Gator win!  Family Weekend was a huge hit this Fall, and we are excited to continue the tradition in upcoming years!

NC Induction Ceremony

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

This semester, the North Carolina Chapter is proud to welcome 7 new members to the brotherhood. 35 brothers attended inductions on Wednesday, October 24th at 6:30pm. We were thankful to have High Chancellor Weston McCorkle there to participate in the ceremony as well.  The traditional ceremony helps the new brothers understand why Alpha Zeta was founded as well as goals of the organization.  We joined in congratulating the newest members of our chapter and challenging them to grow during there time in the chapter. After the ceremony, we watched a slide show of pictures from rush and candidate education week.

With the end of the year drawing nearer the Florida Chapter decided to be thankful for what we have accomplished and pass on the gift of food to those who are not as fortunate.

The St. Francis House is there to provide emergency food, temporary shelter, transitional housing, and related support services in a safe, secure environment for people who find themselves confronted with homelessness and hunger in the Alachua County...
