In late September, the brother of the Alpha Zeta Cook chapter spent the day volunteering at an event known as Duck Land at the Annual Raritan River Festival. Duck Land is a place set up for little kids. The brothers helped the children make sand art, paint pumpkins, create arts and crafts, pour spin art, play games, etc. Brothers also participated in the famous Duck Race where they purchased ducks and threw them into a canal via a giant egg on a crane. The ducks were then observed until someone’s duck floated past the finish line...

On the afternoon of Thursday September 13th, the brothers of Alpha Zeta Cook Chapter participated in Cook Community Day. Brothers wore their letters proudly and the table had posters promoting Alpha Zeta’s core values of service, leadership, scholarship, etc. They spoke with students who stopped by, individually as well as in small groups, about the fraternity and encouraged them to attend future events. With the attraction of beautiful weather, free food, and raffles, the event brought more than 1,000 students and hosted over two dozen clubs and organizations.

Installation of the New Sargent at Arms

This semester, Cook Chapter welcomed a new Sargent at Arms onto our executive board. Danielle Clancy was elected at the end of last semester by the brotherhood to replace our graduating K.C. Murray. At the beginning of the first meeting, K.C. introduced Danielle and handed her the Sargent at Arms binder of Words of Wisdom, letters from previous Sargents explaining her duties, giving advice and offering a personal connection if she ever needs help. The ceremony was ended by a short speech by Danielle thanking K.C. for his dedication to the fraternity and for the excellent job he did last semester. With Cook Chapter's new E-Board installed, we are ready for a wonderful semester.

On Friday September 7th, the brothers of Alpha Zeta gathered on the College Avenue campus during the fall semester’s Involvement Fair. There was a table set with banners and signs promoting the service, leadership, and goals of the fraternity. Brothers talked one-on-one and in small personal groups with their peers; among them hopefully a few prospective new members. The event attracted at least 5,000 people, featuring 300 student organizations, 55 fraternities and sororities, and numerous departments. The weather was beautiful and we certainly made some great new friends.

Eta First Meeting

Originally posted by Katherine C. Kykier

For the first meeting of the semester the Eta chapter started with a balloon mixer to get know the new members. The main business of the meeting was a brainstorming workshop to set goals for the year     and share ideas.  First, we discussed the pros and cons of last year and then set goals. We then had idea sheets for Service Projects, Fundraisers, Initiation, and a theme for the year.  We also made sure that all of the members which attended were registered on the National Website and could access it.  Now, our officer team will consider the ideas from the members and schedule all the events for the year before our next meeting.

On the first Tuesday of the new semester, Cook Chapter got together in an informal hangout to catch up on each other's summers and plans. Our Censor talked to all the brothers about upcoming Rush Events and brotherhood meetings as well as mandatory requirements. Brothers were asked for input on what they wanted from the semester and what their goals were. It looks to be a great semester, and it was great to see everyone again after a long summer.

Brothership Week 11/14-18/2011

Brothership Week 11/14-18/2011

Originally posted by Emily R. Tompkins

This November, members decided to put a new word--brothership--into action. Brothership refers to the tight bond shared between fraternity members--a feeling with which I am sure you all familiar. The week started off with Line Dancing. Both members and friends of the house participated in the "good old-fashioned entertainment." The next day was a Viking Dinner, which, for those unfamiliar with the term, was a utensil-free supper that culminated in a food fight. Vikings took extra care to protect the dining room's treasured murals. Foods sacrificed to the Viking Gods included meatloaf, mashed potatoes, dinner rolls, cole slaw, ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate sauce, juice, and every possible combination of the foods listed above.
