Members enjoyed burgers and chicken nuggets while immersed in the company of our members.

The Florida Chapter decided to get in touch with our roots again by heading back to agriculture. The Agronomy Department held its 1st Annual Agronomy Fall Festival out at the Agronomy Teaching Farm. Members came out to support one of our own and the mastermind behind the festival, Blaire Colvin. Students came out on a beautiful November afternoon for food, fun, and games. The festival gave students at the university an opportunity to take a look into the agronomy program and meet with the faculty, staff, and students that make agronomy great!...

The third annual UF AZ Pancake Breakfast held at Applebee's 8-10 a.m. before a 1 p.m., home football game against Furman. We pre-sold tickets for $5, and then it's was $7 at the door. The breakfast includes 2 pancakes, 2 sausage links, scrambled eggs, butter, syrup, and coffee, orange juice, or water to drink! Members take shifts busing tables, serving, cooking, and cleaning. Our fundraiser chair Gernide Zamor planned this with the help of our treasurer Libby Weber putting a $200 deposit on the restaurant and supplies. We worked hard to get the word out about the breakfast giving members tickets to sell and sending an email out over the faculty/alumni listserv and creating a facebook event to get it out to our friends!...

Cook Chapter Team Runs NJ Tough Mudder

Cook Chapter Team Runs NJ Tough Mudder

Originally posted by Lisa K. Izzo

On Sunday, November 13th, 6 members of the Cook Chapter participated in the NJ Tough Mudder, a 12 mile obstacle course. One group ran the course in blue and yellow tie dye shirts to represent Alpha Zeta. The training for this course started back in early spring. The team members would go on runs and work out together for the months beforehand. On the course, many of the obstacles required teamwork to get each person through, making the chapter members closer. Some of the obstacles included large wooden walls that the team had to get over, monkey bars, mountains of mud and hay, cargo nets, and a half pipe that participants had to run up while others helped them reach the top. Other chapter members came to watch and support the AZ participants through the course. Each participant paid an entry fee, with part of the proceeds going to the Wounded Warrior Project, which helps warriors returning from the battlefield.

On Sunday, November 6th, 7 brothers and one pledge participated in the annual Turkey Trot 3K Walk held by Elijiah's Promise. Brothers donated money to participate in the walk, which Elijiah's Promise would use to provide food for those in need. The walk was also a great bonding experience for brothers, allowing them to walk together, play word games, and talk about new ideas and projects for next semester.

Cornell Chapter Inducts 4 New Members

Cornell Chapter Inducts 4 New Members

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

During the first weekend in November, the Cornell Chapter held our weekend Initiation event. Because our chapter is both a social and honors fraternity, our members are first initiated into our chapter, and then into the National Organization. Our current new members will be Nationally Initiated in the spring semester. Our chapter initiation is a weekend-long event that starts on Friday evening and concludes on Sunday morning. It includes a night-long ceremony on Friday night, social events during the day on Saturday including watching our chapter movie over dinner, and a full house clean-up on Sunday morning.

UF Woodser Social 11/18/11

UF Woodser Social 11/18/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Every semester the Florida Chapter takes a road trip to a local campsite for our Woodser. Just to switch things up a little we reserved a campground at Kate's Fish Camp where we had a bonfire to cook hotdogs and make smores! Members gathered around the fire made by the owner of the camp. Even though the weather was not nearly as cold as it is further north members enjoyed watching the flames dance on the logs allowing us to wind down from a long week as we get ready to head into the last few weeks of the semester. Members took turns spelling things out with burning ends of sticks. Woodser is one of the most anticipated events each semester and members cannot wait to gather around a fire and socialize.

The Florida Chapter's Fall pledge class held a fundraiser at TCBY from 9-10 p.m. where they receive a certain percentage of the profits from the night. Members and pledges came out to meet up with each other and catch up on what has been going on with each since our last event. The fundraiser gave the pledges an opportunity to offset some of the pledging fees associated with AZ. Of course, what better way to do this than while eating ice cream! Members and pledges chow down on frozen yogurt and ice cream of all kinds while enjoying the company of members.

Our intramural indoor soccer team for the Fall semester is coming to a close. Tonight was the last game of our season. Though we may not have a perfect season record members enjoyed coming out on Wednesday for our games. Although the other team did not have enough players to play the game we decided to add a player to there team and have a friendly scrimmage. The scrimmage was a great way to end the season with both teams just going out there and having a blast playing a sport we all came to love over the semester...

UF Canned Food Drive Service 11/15/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

With the Thanksgiving holiday fast approaching the Florida Chapter decided to be thankful for what we have and pass on the gift of food who are not as fortunate. Members collected cans to donate to the St. Francis House in Gainesville. The St. Francis House is there to provide emergency food, temporary shelter, transitional housing, and related support services in a safe, secure environment for people who find themselves confronted with homelessness and hunger in the Alachua County. The cans will be given to the St. Francis House where they will distribute them to people in need around the area. The event allowed our members to give back to the community and try to change someone's luck one can at a time.
