NC Boards on the Bricks Bake Sale

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

To encourage fellow students to attend information sessions, we set up our boards on the brickyard September 11th, 12th and 13th. 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 hour-long shift from 10am to 3pm. We had several students who were interested. This was a good time for the brotherhood to interact with other students and each other. This semester, we also included a bake sale fundraiser. Brothers graciously baked and donated cookies, brownies, and other goodies. Two or three items were wrapped or in Ziploc bags to sell for $1. We made about $30, which will go towards chapter activities or trips.

NC Stream Cleanup

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

On Saturday September 8th, six brothers met to pick up trash around a stream that runs through NCSU’s campus. This is a project that the North Carolina Chapter usually participates in once a semester to aid university maintenance. Our service coordinator organized the project and supplied the group with gloves and trash bags. At 10am, brothers cleaned up an area that many joggers and bikers frequent for about an hour. It was a great morning to be outside. Brothers enjoyed spending time together while beautifying our campus.

Every summer the North Carolina Chapter travels to Jefferson, NC for a relaxing canoe trip. On Wednesday, May 16th, the group took care of some last minute shopping and traveled to the campsite.

Seven brothers camped for two nights and canoed two days while only having to pay about $45. Some brothers enjoyed learning to kayak for the first time. Others enjoyed fishing and watching wildlife in their canoe. The New River was fairly calm with rapids up to level two...

A key commemorating the 75th anniversary of the North Carolina Chapter was placed in NCSU’s Free Expression Tunnel in 1979.

Two years ago, the NC chapter began working to find a new place for the key and a way to honor alumni...
