NC Chapter Potluck

Originally posted by Madeline N. Dabolt

On August 24th, 20 Brothers, Advisers and several Alumni got together before the business meeting in the Shop for a Potluck dinner. There were several main dishes prepared including Mexican chicken and rice, casseroles and plenty of great desserts for the Brotherhood to feast on while catching up from the summer and discussing ideas for this semester.  We always have a great time eating together.

UF Chili's Back to School Social 9/2/11

UF Chili's Back to School Social 9/2/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

For the UF Chapter of Alpha Zeta's fall back to school social, our Social Chair Kaylie planned a dinner at Chili's. Six members came despite having a long weekend that people like to head home for and the excitement of the first football game. The dinner allowed members the opportunity to catch up on what happened over summer and share stories of past professors and giving each other tips on how to survive some of the difficult classes we had in the past.  At the restaurant, everyone pays for their own food and drink but has a lot of fun catching up with friends talking about how the first two weeks of school went.

Cornell Chapter's Fall Rush

Cornell Chapter's Fall Rush

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

The Cornell Chapter holds a formal recruitment in both the fall and spring semesters. Our fall Rush is two weeks long and we are just finishing up our second week. All actives are required to participate in at least some part of rush and several alumni have been present for events as well. Events have consisted of an open dinner at our house every night and fun activities in the evening including go-karting, bowling, a bbq, a "lawn flick" (drive-in style!), laser tag, and several other events throughout the two weeks. We have been very happy with the number of potential members that have visited the house and look forward to bid acceptance next week!

Cornell Chapter's Summer Weekend

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

Cornell Chapter members (and one NC State alumni!) convened upon Granby, CT for the weekend of July 8-10 for the annual AZ Summer Weekend. Carly Neumann (Chancellor) and her family graciously hosted a group of actives, alumni, and friends from other chapters that peaked at 24 people. We went tubing down a river and through rapids, ate ice-cream at a local dairy bar and creamery, took a tour of a mixed-dairy farm, shared stories around a bonfire, and much more. Each summer, a different active hosts the event and we look forward to doing it again next year!

Cornell Chapter's Garden

Cornell Chapter's Garden

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

This year AZ members looked to hard work and the house garden to combat the rising cost of food and low quality of store-bought products. On the 15'x40' plot, lent to us by alumnus Richard Church, we grew tomatoes, zucchini, summer squash, cucumbers, peppers, carrots and even a few eggplants, root crops, and melons! We employed a variety of planting techniques (including remay, black plastic, and good old stick-it-in-the-ground). A small core of actives and alumni spent the summer combating weeds, mildews, rots, and squash bugs to give us a harvest to be reckoned with. Feeding 26 people five nights a week means picking and choosing whether to buy local, produce food ourselves, or buy from a wholesale distributor. We have chosen to supply as much food as we can through this small garden...

UF Road Clean Up Service 8/28/11

UF Road Clean Up Service 8/28/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The UF Chapter of Alpha Zeta adopted a road in our community about three years ago with the commitment to keep it clean by completing at least six clean up service events each fiscal year. Since we did not hold events this summer four members attended this event in our bright orange safety vests to kick the year off on the right foot. Even though it is considered a service event members enjoyed catching up on summer travels sharing stories and talking about what is ahead for their fall semester. It was a great way for members to get together outside of school and help improve the community one garbage bag at a time.

Road Trip

Road Trip

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

From May 27th to May 29th, 6 cook chapter brothers took a mini-road trip down to Washington DC to see the sights. They planned it themselves and saw the White House, the Washington Monument, Lincoln's memorial, the World War II Memorial, and other monuments and museums. They also spent some time in Maryland. This was an awesome way for these brothers to kick off the summer and have some fun.

AG Day at Penn State

AG Day at Penn State

Originally posted by Shawn W. Beam

On April 20th 2011, the Penn State college of Agricultural Sciences hosted Ag day on campus. This year's theme was Ag literacy. Our chapter along with other Ag clubs and Fraternities set up booths that related to this theme. Our booth was a comparison between Organic and Conventional farming. It displayed facts and myths about both farming practices and had edible samples of each. We then asked our visitors if they could "taste the difference”. The catch was we hid the answer of what each sample was. We received a variety of comments about our booth (and food samples) ranging from, "I didn't know organic farming used pesticides” to "I can taste the MSG in this apple”. All and all it was a successful day and a great way for Alpha Zeta to help educate those who don't know as much as they should about food supply...

North Carolina Coldstone Fundraiser

North Carolina Coldstone Fundraiser

On April 19th, several of our brothers scooped at the Coldstone Creamery in Cary, NC.  While they helped serve delicious ice cream for two hours, the rest of the brotherhood and their friends enjoyed the ice cream creations. A couple of us had the "All lovin', no oven".  It was amazing, but sweet. All of us enjoyed socializing and hanging out as a brotherhood in the good weather that day.  We raised $120 to support the brothers that attended NALC at the beginning of the month.
