UF Road Clean Up Service 3/22/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter cleaned up our adopted road for the first time this spring. The members that participated in the clean up did not mind taking time out of their schedule on a Thursday evening to put the trash back where it belongs and off the street. Usually our road clean-ups take place on a weekend in the morning to avoid the heat of the day but our service chair, Jaclyn Irwin, planned the evening clean up to help add variation to the times of our events...

UF Pledge Class Red Mango Fundraiser 3/20/12

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.

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

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...

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...

Welcome Back BBQ

Welcome Back BBQ

Originally posted by Sarah Jane Neuharth

Members of Alpha Zeta Eta at California State University, Chico started off the Fall 2011 semester with a "Welcome Back" BBQ.  Members and advisors enjoyed hot dogs and cheeseburgers fresh off the grill, and the pups enjoyed getting to run around at Bidwell Park (one of the largest municipal parks in the country, and a gem of Northern California).  Activities including volleyball and frisbee were among some of the evening's highlight.  Overall it was a fun start to the year in the Eta chapter.

Barrett Keene is a former agriscience teacher from Florida who is embarking on a crazy adventure. He is taking the last few months of his PHD at Cornell University to walk literally across the United States of America. Why is he taking on such a crazy adventure? Well at the Florida Chapters meeting he shared those exact thoughts. Barrett is supporting a cause that not many of us think about on a daily basis or much at all unless you see commercials or know of someone who came from the situation. I am talking about orphaned and abandoned kids. He is promoting the Global Orphan Project as he walks talking to student and people just like our members to help be proactive ad sustainable about getting the children in the project schooling and care...

The Florida Chapter had its second to last intramural sand volleyball game on Sunday. The members who showed up to play that night and were met by a team with the same record as we did. Both teams warmed up and our team continued to show great improvements upon each successive time we play together and are definitely looking forward to the last game of the season. As for the game itself it was a rainy and cold night so the teams decided to call it a draw and go into their last game as 1-1-1. The team is looking forward to their next opponent Sketchville USA and hope it will be another good game ending with a win!
