On 10/15, several members from the Cornell Chapter went to the Ithaca Children's Garden to volunteer at a fall harvest event. Members spent the afternoon helping kids and their families build scarecrows. Members who went said it was really rewarding to help everyone get into the fall spirit with a hands on activity.

Cornell Chapter Sibling Olympics

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

As part of our new member education process, the pledges planned a sibling olympics event for the active members on 10/15. The event was held in the afternoon and included a pumpkin carving contest and a scarecrow building contest (pictured), among other events. This is the second semester we've done this event and is something we hope to continue it in the future as it is a great way to bring both active members and new members together in a fun setting.

Have you ever seen the Ocean Spray commercial on tv? Well the Cornell chapter can tell you that's exactly what a cranberry harvest looks like! Over our fall break in October, 15 members from the Cornell Chapter visited an alumnus' cranberry farm in East Taunton, Massachusetts. It was our third consecutive year visiting his farm over break to help with their harvest...

After our pledge event last week (10/20) where pledges were quizzed on information learned thus far in the pledge process, our pledges were surprised by receiving their Big Brother and Big Sister. Each pledge received a gift related to their particular lineage and photos of each pledge with their bigs were taken. Following the event was a night of good, fun fellowship!

Cornell Greek Weekend

Cornell Greek Weekend

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

As some of you may have heard, the president of Cornell University is really cracking down on the Greek system this year and as a result, the Greek system has had to be creative in the way different events are run, particularly when regarding recruitment. This semester, the Interfraternity Council (IFC) planned a Greek Preview Weekend where all fraternities had an open house event on Friday evening (10/14) and a smoker on Saturday (10/15) where freshman had the opportunity to visit houses and meet active brothers. Friday evening, our chapter planning a carnival which unfortunately had to be moved inside due to weather. Saturday we hosted a smoker that was sports themed. Unfortunately the events were not as well attended as we had hoped due to bad weather, but the actives who participated had a great time!

Cornell Chapter Hosts Semesterly Ag Day

Cornell Chapter Hosts Semesterly Ag Day

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

Every semester the Cornell Chapter hosts "Ag Day" on the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Quad. Our event this semester was held on 10/14. While Cornell may be the land grant university in our state, sadly many students do not even know that Cornell still has agricultural departments. We hold this event to both educate the Cornell Community, as well as to raise money for Tompkins County 4-H. Our event this semester was run as it has been in the past, with a fistulated cow for cow bingo, food, tractors, sheep, and campus agricultural organizations and clubs...

This past Saturday (10/1), the Cornell Chapter participated in a Habitat for Humanity build day in a local community. Seven actives, 2 alumni, and 1 pledge attended. They worked hard all morning to put drywall in the basement and paneling in the ceiling. It was a great way to put our skills to work for the community.

Lost in a Maze of Maize

Lost in a Maze of Maize

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

This past Friday, (9/30), the Cornell Chapter attended a corn maze with two other campus organizations. Collegiate FFA and Hortus Forum (the undergraduate horticulture club) attended with us. Everyone met at the AZ House and headed to the maze together. Many members of AZ are a part of the other organizations and we thought it would be a great way to mingle with other "aggies". Around 15 actives attended, 1 alumni, and 3 pledges, along with many others from the other organizations. Everyone had a great time despite the mud and we really look forward to organizing events like this with other agricultural organizations in the future!

Cornell Campus Scavenger Hunt

Cornell Campus Scavenger Hunt

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

One of our new member events is a campus scavenger hunt to learn about how AZ at Cornell has impacted the campus, mostly in the Ag School. It was held this semester on 9/27. New members got clues to different buildings on campus that are important to AZ and met actives at each building to hear how it was important. At one stop, two alumni surprised the new members with hot chocolate. The night concluded on the Arts Quad by the statue of our college's founder.
