Morrill Chapter Visits Cornell Chapter

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

This past weekend, 7 members of the Morrill Chapter at Penn State came to visit the Cornell Chapter. Through a fun night of fellowship, we got to know some of the members from the closest AZ Chapter to us. As the only two chapters of AZ that have a house and also consider themselves as "social" organizations within the Greek community on our campuses, we try to visit one another at least one time a semester, but missed out last fall. It's great for our chapters to discuss recruitment and new member education, among other things because our chapters are fairly similar. Members of the Cornell Chapter are going to visit the Morrill Chapter in a few weeks.

2-05 Poe Springs Tree Planting Service

2-05 Poe Springs Tree Planting Service

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

The Florida chapter of Alpha Zeta helped plant young trees at one of our many local springs, Poe Springs. This project benefited those that participated by being out in nature and helping the environment by planting trees. The chapter participated because this was yet another perfect way to promote agriculture. Planning included knowing what time to meet up, organizing a carpool, and providing directions to the springs.

The 12 pledges have very diverse backgrounds and interests from Natural Resources to Animal Science. We are very excited to guide them through the process of becoming new members of Alpha Zeta!

The Cornell Chapter just finished 2 fun-filled weeks of Rush! From January 17th to January 29th we held events and participated in Greek Smokers to attract new members. With activities every day like bowling, broomball, line dancing, open houses at our house, and sledding we had many people show interest in our organization. At the beginning of every semester after a long break, Rush allows our chapter to bond together while attracting new potential members. A lot of work of planning always pays off!

Southern Farm Show

Originally posted by Lauren K. Mabry

On Friday Feb. 4th, at 1pm seven Alpha Zeta brothers met at the fairgrounds to go to the Southern Farm Show.  Admission to the Southern Farm show is free.  The Southern Farm show is a trade show showcasing different types of agricultural equipment and companies.  There were many different types of tractors for us to see.  They had a tobacco harvester, hay bailers, fertilize spreaders, and bushhogs.  They also had different types of cattle equipment that was demonstrated.  They also had cattle dog demonstrations and demonstrated how to properly vaccinate cattle.  Different companies that could one day employ us were also there so it was also a great time to network.  After walking through the trade show, we went to dinner and then came back to the mule pull held at the horse complex.  We all had a lot of fun and it was a great opportunity for us to see some of the latest technology in agriculture.

Since we had such a great time bowling the first time we decided to have a round 2 with all the new brothers.  We had 30 brothers attend with 3 alumni in attendance as well.  We all needed time to unwind after a successful candidate education week.  It was also a great way for us to get to know the new brothers.  We all had a great time.

Roundtable Inverviews

On Sunday Feb 6th, the brothers of the North Carolina Chapter of Alpha Zeta met to interview our potential candidates.  We all met at Weaver labs at 11am in business professional dress and brought breakfast or brunch items to share.  We started the day by welcoming the potential candidates, showing them a slide show presentation of some of our activities, and singing the AZ friendship song.  These interviews gave us an opportunity to get to know these talented individuals and a time for them to ask us questions.  We interviewed twenty seven potential candidates and extended 25 bids! We are very excited about this potentially large candidate class and can't wait for them to become brothers of our fraternity.

Grilled Cheese for Diseases!

Originally posted by Stephanie M. Neal

We organized a fundraiser called Grilled Cheeses for Diseases. For this event we partnered with ATZ Farmhouse Fraternity and used their house to make grilled cheeses that were sold to students walking by. All the proceeds went to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. This event was a great way to bring the members from each class together in a fun way that benefited a great cause. Our chapter participated because we wanted to do something that we never tried before and everyone really seemed to have enjoyed themselves. The chair of the social and community service committee organized the event with the help of her committee and ATZ members. We distributed flyers on campus, made a facebook group and made posters advertising the event.
