UF Scavenger Hunt 1/17/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter started off the new semester with a little fun and games. At our first member meeting of the semester our social chair Kaylie Smith put together a scavenger hunt in order to get our members to know each other a little better. We started off the night taking turns introducing ourselves to allow our newest members the opportunity to put names to faces. We were then broken up into 7 teams that had to complete and take pictures of a variety of tasks such as "Tebowing" with the Tebow statue and arm wrestling with a stranger, which took place all across campus. Members sprinted out of the meeting room to start the first task of the semester!...

The Florida Chapter of Alpha Zeta hosted the National Service Project for the second time. 10 brothers came from Florida and across the country to help in the Orlando area. The trip was an opportunity for members to work hard and make a difference in the lives of people we encountered or helped. The 10 members who came to Orlando worked extremely hard and made a huge difference in the lives of disadvantaged people in the Central Florida area!

Originally posted by Lisa K. Izzo

On November 10th, the Scholarship Committee of the Cook Chapter hosted a lunch with Dr. Bruce Clarke, an Alpha Zeta alumnus and professor of Plant Biology and Pathology at Rutgers. Dr. Clarke answered questions regarding the graduate school application process, and gave members tips on writing to prospective graduate school advisors. He also talked about what the Cook Campus community  and Alpha Zeta were like many years ago, and members discussed changes occurring on campus and Alpha Zeta's role in keeping a sense of community in the ever-changing Rutgers landscape. Members enjoyed getting the chance to talk to a professor and alumnus that they do not get to see very often.

Originally posted by Lisa K. Izzo

On October 11th, the Scholarship Committee of the Cook Chapter hosted the second dinner with Alpha Zeta faculty on Cook Campus. Members met up with Dr. George Clark, a chapter advisor and professor in the Human Ecology Department, at a local pizza place. Dr. Clark talked about how he got to where he is now. Members learned some fun facts about their advisor, such as how he had originally wanted to be a dentist and that his favorite food is pizza (hence the restaurant choice). Members enjoyed getting to know one of their advisors better over a casual dinner.

UF Cards for Pediatric Caner Patients Service 12/1/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter joined up with Friends for Life who represents the annual Hearts for the Holidays event. The event encourages UF students, faculty and staff to make holiday cards to pediatric cancer patients who will spend the holidays in the hospital. They attempt to send cards to one hospital in every state. Hearts for the Holidays gives university students and our members the chance to provide support for children fighting cancer. Our chapter benefited by coming together in order to make the lives of others better during the time of year where hope is in the area. The cards were delivered to the Friends for Life representatives to distribute to the hospitals.

UF White Elephant Gift Exchange Social 11/29/11

UF White Elephant Gift Exchange Social 11/29/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

At our last meeting of the fall semester members of the Florida Chapter participated in a White Elephant gift exchange. The rules are pretty simple: everyone brings a wrapped gift valued at $5-$10. We number slips of paper 1-however many people we have, and each person takes a number from a hat. Whoever gets #1 goes to the front and unwraps a gift. Number 2 may unwrap their own gift or steal the gift of number 1. We continue until everyone has a gift! A gift may be stolen only 3 times before it is frozen, and if your gift is stolen, you unwrap another! But remember there are no direct steal backs! Everyone that participates has a lot of fun and goes home with a unique present that one of their fellow members picked out for the holiday season.

The Florida Chapter had the amazing opportunity to initiate 5 new members into our chapter. The night was a rainy and chilly night but that would not stop our excitement or gratitude to the members, staff, and initiates that came out. The ceremony was a traditional set up allowing the initiates an inside into what we were founded on and what we strive towards as an organization. After the ceremony we joined in congratulating the newest members of our chapter with dinner where they sat with their sponsors, our advisors, and honored guest Dr. Robert McCleery....

Members of the Florida Chapter went to raise money at the Gelato Company where 10% of the sales made from 6-8 p.m. went to help fund our chapter’s events and members. Members came out to meet up with each other for a nice dinner and dessert. The fundraiser gave the chapter an opportunity to offset some of the costs associated with our events over the course of the year. Members chowed down on gelato of all kinds while enjoying the company of other members.
