The Miller & Joseph Seminar:Strengthening Diverstiy Through Pluralism

The Miller & Joseph Seminar:Strengthening Diverstiy Through Pluralism

Originally posted by Melinda L. Lee

The weekend of October 12, 2012 twenty members participated in a Diversity Seminar, with 14 presenters and Seminar Hosts. Through participation in this three-day seminar, the Townsend AZP Chapter's 14th class developed a firm understanding of the ways that diversity and pluralism are related. On the first day of this seminar, AZP members focused on the many aspects of diversity, and discussed the social stigmas that are stereotypically attached to different ethnic, socioeconomic and religious groups. Students were able to participate in a hands-on activity that illustrated the fallacy that each person has an "even playing field" in life; students discussed the difference that monetary privileges can make on an individual's lifestyle and educational success.

Florida Chapter Initiates Fall 2012 Pledges

Originally posted by Audrey S. Knickerbocker

Last Tuesday, November 20th, the Florida Chapter of Alpha Zeta had the privilege of initiating 10 new members.  The evening started out with mingling and networking between sponsors, pledges, and others in attendance.  Initiation rituals were conducted and the pledges became official members of the Florida Chapter of Alpha Zeta.  It was an exciting night for everyone in attendance.  Pledges finally saw all their hard work during the semester pay off.  The evening continued with a delicious dinner, speeches, and awards for the pledges.  All officers in attendance voted on the best pledge paddle, and that person was recognized with a gift basket of goodies!  All the pledge paddles looked great, so it was a tough decision!  We were unexpectedly honored to have the dean of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, Dean Balser, in attendance for the ceremonies.  All in all, it was a joyous night for everyone and we wish the best of luck to our new members of the Florida Chapter!

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.

Adopt a Highway

Every semester the Cornell chapter participates in adopt a highway. This is a tradition that occurs every initiation weekend. The 2-mile stretch the chapter is assigned to, is right outside of town. It is a great way for new members to officially participate in community service with the chapter.

UF FOG Jog 5K Service 4/15/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter participated or volunteered at the first annual FOG Jog. The Florida Organic Growers put on the 5K Run/Walk to help raise funds. The event was a fun and healthy way for members to help raise funds for Florida Organic Growers (FOG), a local non-profit which supports and promotes organic, sustainable agriculture and nutritional food in our community. It was a blast for members to help support the local community and give back while keeping healthy.

UF Pledge Class 34th St. Wall Painting Social 4/14/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter's pledge class met up to take part in a tradition at the University of Florida. Located on 34th St. in Gainesville is a wall that lines the road where students all over the city come and paint advertisements, pictures, and even proposals. They decided to go and leave their mark on the 34th St. wall days before they became members. In the group there were some more talented graffiti artists than others, however our finished product is one to challenge some of the best artists. The wall gave them the opportunity to show their creative side and have fun outside with each other away from the stresses of school and finishing their AZ requirements as initiation drew ever so close.

UF Pledge Class Red Mango Fundraiser 4/12/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter's spring pledge class held a fundraiser at Red Mango from 8-11 PM where they receive a certain percentage of the profits from those hours. Members and pledges came out after classes and studying to meet up with each other and get some delicious frozen yogurt that could be topped with numerous things including fresh fruit. The fundraiser gave the pledge class an opportunity to offset some of the fees associated with pledging like dues and national fees. Of course, what better way to do this than while eating frozen yogurt!...

UF Applebee's Fundraiser 4/11/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter went to enjoy the food from Applebee's but unlike our normal Pancake Breakfast Fundraiser where we cook we were just there to enjoy the food and company of each other. Anytime on the 11th members and friends could come in and present a flyer to their server and a portion of the sales made would be donated to our chapter. Members and pledges met up for lunch or dinner with each other and took the time to just relax and catch up since a large group of us were graduating in less than a month. It gave us time to reminisce about the fun times we had in AZ and at UF. The fundraiser gave the chapter an opportunity to offset some of the costs associated with our events over the course of the year.
