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

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.

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...

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 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...

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

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

Cook's Big Little Olympics

Originally posted by Lisa K. Izzo

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.

On February 18th, the new member class of the Cook Chapter gathered with their Censor and Sgt at Arms for a retreat. The new members have just started their pledging process, so they spent time at the retreat playing games led by the members of Pledge Committee that helped them get to know each other. 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.
