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.

On February 8th, the brothers of the Cook Chapter hosted their once a semester mixer for potential new members. About 30 interested students showed up to the mixer. The night started out with the Censor and Sgt at Arms explaining the pledging process and talking about what Alpha Zeta stands for and what we do at Rutgers. The new members then got to mingle with all of the brothers, first by taking part in a "brother scavenger hunt", and then by breaking into groups and playing ice breaker type games. All of the brothers enjoyed meeting the potential new members.

S'mores!

S'mores!

On the night of February 1st, Cook Chapter planned a recruitment event that would leave everyone in a sugar rush. We made a fire outside the Campus Center and invited anyone who was walking around to come and make a S'more. A lot of people burned their marshmallows and claimed that was the plan all along. It was a great way to promote our name on campus and announce our presence to potential pledges. We gave out a lot of pledge flyers and are hoping to see a great turnout this semester.

One of the great traditions that the Cook Chapter has is bigs and littles, but it goes beyond that. Family lines are important to the members of the chapter, even after the pledging semester is over. Recently, many families have started the tradition of the "family dinner". Most families do a potluck style dinner, cooking anything from mac and cheese to chili...
