The festival gave students at the university an opportunity to take a look into the agronomy program and meet with the faculty, staff, and students that make agronomy great!...

In the midst of midterm season, it was a great break from all of the studying, and a fun way to get into the Halloween mood.

Cook Chapter Pledge Project 10/22

Cook Chapter Pledge Project 10/22

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

Cook Chapter took a field trip to the Rutgers Gardens to clean the bamboo forest. Every semester, we head over and shovel and rake mulch into a better path, weed, cut down dead and dangerous branches and help the Gardens in any way they need. This time our clean up also included planting new trees along the street to reduce erosion. Everyone had a great time and we all managed to whistle while we worked (and sing Disney songs as well), making the manual labor much more enjoyable.

On October 13th, Alpha Zeta Cook Chapter participated in the University-wide Charity Bedrace. About 90 different clubs, fraternities and sororities from all across Rutgers entered the competition, with each team decorating a bed and having 4 members race it down one of the main streets on campus. Cook Chapter decorated their bed to represent our agricultural roots, and team members raced as a farmer and her pigs. The entry fee for the race was a collection of hats and gloves that would go to children in local schools. Cook Chapter collected about 40 sets of hats and gloves to donate to the cause.

The road clean-up was planned for an evening to avoid the heat of the day...
