New Member Education Week is held every semester after candidates for membership are chosen.

NC Spring Boards on the Bricks

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

To encourage fellow students to attend information sessions, we set up our boards on the brickyard January 29th, 30th and 31st. Brothers stood at the boards in between classes so that if a student had questions about Alpha Zeta they could answer them. Two to six brothers stood by the boards for each ninety-minute shift from 9:30am to 3pm.

AZ Cornell-Rush Week Broomball

AZ Cornell-Rush Week Broomball

Originally posted by Sara K. Orlowski

It’s the first week of the semester and the second week of rush and everyone at the Cornell Chapter knows what that means…BROOMBALL! Over the years, broomball, which for those of you who don’t know is sort of like hockey without skates, has become a tradition for the house and a way to recruit new members. Who doesn’t enjoy sliding around on ice, in the middle of winter, especially in upstate NY!

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.

Halloween Cards

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.
