Krispy Kreme Challenge

Krispy Kreme Challenge

Originally posted by Lauren K. Mabry

On Saturday Feb 5, six brothers met at Weaver labs at 6:30am to volunteer for the annual Krispy Kreme Challenge.  We carpooled to our local Krispy Kreme, two miles from campus.  The Krispy Kreme challenge is an annual run starting at the bell tower on NCSU's campus.  The runners run 2 miles to the Krispy Kreme, eat a dozen doughnuts and then run back hoping to finish in under an hour.  Our brothers helped set up, pass out doughnuts and water during the run and helped clean up after. We even had 2 brothers that competed in the run.   It was unfortunately raining the entire time.  The Krispy Kreme even donated doughnuts for our roundtable the day after the event.

Some members of Alpha Zeta participated in a workshop offered to the scientific community by The Conservation Trust of Puerto Rico, which is a non-profit organization that protects the Island’s natural resources. They develop programs aimed at educating the public about environmental issues. During the workshop we study the bats excrement to thereby determine which bats were responsible for the dispersion of native trees and plants.

Coffee Farm Cleaning

Coffee Farm Cleaning

Originally posted by Jacqueline Armstrong

On February 5th, Alpha Zeta visited the "Farm of Octavio" in Lares, Puerto Rico. This farm consists mostly of coffee, plantains and some oranges. It is 25 acres but not all of it is in production at the moment. Currently, the owner is trying to stabilize the conditions that are not producing to begin planting. The purpose of the activity was to help those areas that were full of weeds, grass and trees to provide a better planting condition for the owner. We started helping by cleaning out most of the area where the coffee is going to be planted. This was done with machetes due to the high costs associated with machinery and equipment, which also carries away the soil layers containing organic matter. After hard work, the owner served us food made in wood, something very typical of rural area.

On January 26th Cal-Epsilon hosted Coffee Beak with Alpha Zeta. We provided coffee and donuts in the Agriculture quad to all passing students. All of our chapter officers were present and handed out flyers about Alpha Zeta. It was a welcome back event that helped promote Alpha Zeta in our Agriculture College. The flyers had fun facts about Alpha Zeta and information about how to join. The event was a success and we hope that it will bring even more members into our thriving chapter!

1-29 Road Clean-Up Service

1-29 Road Clean-Up Service

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

The Florida chapter of Alpha Zeta adopted a road several years ago and in order to keep this road we have to do a certain number of road clean-ups within a year's time. Of course, we don't mind and enjoy making sure trash gets put where it belongs! We usually do our road clean-ups on Saturday mornings, so our service chair, Kaitlyn Summerfield, plans for those attending to meet in a parking lot on campus and carpool over. Planning involves pickin up the supplies ahead of time and bringing it to our AZ road. This is always a great way to get outside and socialize while cleaning our environment!

1-21 Gators Dockside Back to School Social

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

For our fall back to school social, our social chair, Dalal Hares, planned a dinner at Gators Dockside. It went so well we had another one to welcome the start of spring semester! Planning involed getting a rough estimate of the number of members that would attend in order to give the restaurant a notice about a large party coming for dinner. At the restaurant, everyone pays for their own food and drink but has a lot of fun catching up with friends discussing what we did over holiday break!
