Pledge Outing 2/4/2012

Originally posted by Emily R. Tompkins

The first activity for our 10 new members was an outdoor excursion with Pledge Master Gianni Parente ’14 and Pledge Educator Amanda Forstater ’13. Together the group completed a ropes course through Cornell Outdoor Education and the pledges cooked their own dinner over a fire. The group played games like mafia and various ice breakers and thoroughly enjoyed them. Even the heated cabins were too cold to stay in during February, so the event culminated in a slumber party on the comfy convertible couches in the formal room at the house. Pledges enjoyed the opportunity to spend the whole day getting to know each other, and recommend that it be repeated in the future.

A Day with AZ Cornell 1/21/12

A Day with AZ Cornell 1/21/12

Originally posted by Emily R. Tompkins

During rush week at the Cornell chapter, members and potential new members went on a road trip to Syracuse and the surrounding areas. We decided to take this opportunity to have quality guy/girl time. The men of AZ trekked to the nearest casino where some were rewarded for their poker faces, while others, though not as lucky, still had a blast. The guys concluded their trip with a belt-busting dinner at an all-you-can-eat Brazilian steakhouse. The Cornell ladies had other ideas. Some flocked to a local ice skating rink while others visited the zoo. We later met up at the carousel at Syracuse’s famous Carousel Mall and went on it for a few rides...

UF Pledge Class Red Mango Fundraiser 3/20/12

UF Pledge Class Red Mango Fundraiser 3/20/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter's spring pledge class held a fundraiser at Red Mango from 8-11 PM where we receive a certain percentage of the profits from the night. Members and pledges came out after the pledge meeting to meet up with each other and get to know each other more so that the pledges can make a good transition into the chapter. The fundraiser gave the pledge class an opportunity to offset some of the fees associated with pledging. Of course, what better way to do this than while eating frozen yogurt! Members and pledges chowed down on frozen yogurt of all kinds with fruit toppings and chocolate while enjoying the company of each other.

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Florida Chapter pledges and members sat face to face in a spree of 23 rounds of speed dating! The speed dating gives the members and pledges a brief and fun way to get to know a little about each other. The "big" and "little" give the pledge master, Saajan Panikar, their list of their top 3 choices. After the "little" are paired up with a "big" - an active member who would act as their "go-to" to help them with anything they need even if it is just an ear to listen...
