NC New Member Education Week!

NC New Member Education Week!

Author: Jamie DeRose/Wednesday, February 11, 2015/Categories: Chapter Activity Report Blog, New Member Development, North Carolina

After our Retreat, the NC Chapter began its New Member Education Week.  The week started on Sunday.  When the candidates and Brothers arrived, we shared jokes with each other and learned about the different families in our chapter.  After, the candidates painted our Free Expression Tunnel on campus as a team building exercise.  They also received binders with information on all of the active Brothers to gain their signatures.  On Monday, we met at 5:30 for our traditional Southern Supper, and the night ended with a signature session.  Tuesday consisted of a normal signature session, and afterwards Brothers and candidates went out to different landmarks around campus to take pictures.  On Wednesday, the candidates took a test to prove how much they knew about the history of our fraternity, followed by a pinning ceremony and a quick signature session.  On Thursday, a normal signature session took place, followed by a traditional “Walk Across The Bricks” where candidates get the chance to learn about the importance of agriculture across our campus.  The main purpose of this week is to educate new members about current brothers, the history of our chapter, why agriculture is important to our college and state and to encourage teamwork and leadership amongst the group. It also gives the brothers a chance to get to know the candidates and acknowledge the class’s knowledge, talents or creativity.
