The Florida Chapter headed to a second round at the University of Florida's Lake Wauburg Ropes Course. It started with activities aimed to get to know each other and warm up. We followed it with a game of Alaskan football where we passed the Frisbee above and below each person then the last person threw a Frisbee and to score points run around our team. We then broke up into 2 separate groups completing a low alpine course where everyone had to work as a team to get everyone across a two foot high log-course with various obstacles and team problem solving activities as well as multiple other team building activities working on communication and trust...

With all the smores fixings bought, the Florida Chapter was off to another successful woodser. Every semester we take a road trip to a local campsite in the middle of what seems to be nowhere for our Woodser. We reserved a campground at Kate's Fish Camp where the ranger came out and helped set up our bonfire to make delicious smores! Members gathered around the fire to share stories about their semester and to meet the newest pledges...

Cook's Big Little Olympics

On February 26th, the Cook Chapter hosted the Big/Little Olympics for the semester. The theme was opposites, with each big little pair dressing up in opposite fashion. Some pairings included nerd and beauty queen, the 1% and the 99%, and Waldo and Wenda. Big little pairs played games like The Blob, Ninja, Heads vs Tails, Tanks and Dodgeball. The Olympics was a great chance for littles to bond with their bigs and for brothers to get to know the new pledge class a little better.

After the games, the members of Scholarship Committee discussed the requirements for the debate paper with the new members and answered any questions they had about topics, format or content.

Cook Chapter Installment Ritual One

Cook Chapter Installment Ritual One

Originally posted by Sean K. Ryan

On Friday, February 17th, the new members went through the first installment of their initiation. Taken to the Rutgers Gardens, the Tau class sat with anticipation and nervousness. They had no idea what events were going to transpire that night. All they knew was that they had to work in sync in order to get through it. Each class of active brothers, alumni, and Chair of the Advisory Committee, Dr. George Clark, had their own time to question the new members on the history and ideals of Alpha Zeta.  Throughout the night, the new members were taken from the group to be questioned by Dr. Clark as well as meet their Bigs. At the end of the night, the Tau class was welcomed by the brothers and given their pins. This signified the beginning of their eight week initiation into the Fraternity.

UF Archery Lesson by Orange and Blue Archery Club 2/19/12

UF Archery Lesson by Orange and Blue Archery Club 2/19/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Orange and Blue Archery Club hosted Alpha Zeta for an archery lesson before their club practice. A team member Lauren taught the group the proper techniques of how to hold a bow and the arrow and equipment for shooting arrows. There was a great turnout for Alpha Zeta and all of the members had a great time! After overcoming the difficulty of the wind, members were able to shoot at foam targets, and several members came close while others did in fact hit the bulls eye. Members were able to learn about the challenges of tournament play and the different types of bows and arrows required for the sport. It was a great experience to join up with another UF club and a fun day outdoors!
