New Member Ritual Night

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

On February 19th, 49 brothers, 25 alumni, and 21 pledges made their way out to what is one of the most important nights of every semester, New Member Ritual Night. This was held at the Meadows and is a joyous occasion in which brothers get to meet up with alumni who graduated from as little as the semester before to much much longer ago...

Movie Night With the Pledges

Movie Night With the Pledges

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

On February 10th, 2 pledges, 2 alumni, and 14 brothers made their way to one of the some of the brothers' off campus house to watch a Happy Gilmore. This was a fun, relaxing way to spend a Thursday night instead of doing homework and allowed for the pledges and brothers to get to know each other better. It also allowed for the brothers to get to hang out with some of the alumni that we all dearly miss and wish could make it back to more of our chapter events.

Valentine's Rose Sale Fundraiser

Valentine's Rose Sale Fundraiser

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

Our annual rose sale is our biggest fundraiser! Our fundraiser chair, Gernide Zamor, did an excellent job planning everything with the help of 28 other members! An order form is e-mailed to the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences faculty listserv as well as the Florida chapter's AZ listserv. We order over 700 roses in red, white, and pink colors to fulfill our pre-sales and to sell individually on campus on Valentine's Day. This is a THREE DAY event since it takes time to prep the roses (de-thorn, clip the ends, and separate by color), store in a walk-in cooler, bundle the roses according to pre-sale orders, deliver the orders on campus on Valentine's day, and table on campus selling any remaining roses. This benefits the college by giving an alternative to expensive florists while supporting its own honors fraternity! We greatly look forward to this event every spring!

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.

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!

On December 14th 8 brothers and 2 alumni of the Cook College Chapter got together and had a tea party to celebrate the holidays and talk about future events that the chapter would like to have. Many of the members of the brotherhood committee attended to discuss this past semesters events and how they could be improved and events that brothers would like to see happen in the future. A good time was had by all and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas played in the background as a nice touch.

An Alpha Zeta Cook Holiday Party With BSA

Originally posted by Amanda E. Sorensen

On December 3rd of 2010 27 brothers and 6 alumni of the Cook College Chapter attended the Botanical Society of America's holiday happy hour featuring our dear friend, the potato. There were potato related trivia questions, arts and crafts, and meeting and greeting with the members of BSA. It was a good bonding experience for both the brothers and those outside of the fraternity as we showed our support for other campus organizations.
