Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Fall Pledge class of the Florida Chapter held a fundraiser at Wendy's from 5-7 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 for a laid back dinner and a chocolate frosty. What is better than friends and a frosty? Members enjoyed burgers and chicken nuggets while immersed in the company of our members.

Cook Chapter Holds Big/Little Olympics

Cook Chapter Holds Big/Little Olympics

Originally posted by Lisa K. Izzo

On Saturday, November 12th, Cook Chapter held Big/Little Olympics, which takes place each semester. About 20 members attended to play games and for bonding between the pledges and the brotherhood. Games included Ninja, The Blob, Dodgeball, and assorted relay races, as well as a game called Tanks, where big/little pairs worked in teams. One was blindfolded and the team had to develop a system of communication using only 5 words (cat, dog, cow, horse, chicken) to help the blindfolded member pick up and throw balls of newspaper. The event also had a costume contest, where big/little pairs dressed up as characters from movies.

Cornell Chapter Participates in Adopt-a-Highway

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

During our initiation weekend at the beginning of November, our chapter participated in Adopt-a-Highway which we do every semester during our initiation weekend. It is the first community service event the new members have the opportunity to participate in officially. Fourteen members were able to participate this semester. We have a 2 mile stretch about 10min. from campus that we are assigned to clean. The event always ends with a lunch at a restaurant in Ithaca.

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.

Townshend Chapter Class 13 Seminar 2 Oct. 5-7, 2011

Originally posted by Katilyn D. Stevens

This was the second out of four seminars for the newly inducted class 13. This was the diversity seminar which focused on strengthening our diversity skills through pluralism. We attended a prayer session at a local Mosque, we ate at a Chinese restaurant, had a guest speaker from the GLBT Speakers Bureau, had the author of the freshman BBC book meet with us, we volunteered at an AIDS walk in downtown Columbus, and we had a speaker from the diversity department spend a whole day with us practicing diversity activities. The chapter benefits from this annual seminar by opening the participants eyes to the differences in the world...

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.

UF Potluck 11/15/11

UF Potluck 11/15/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

It's potluck time again!!! Potluck is a tradition in the Florida Chapter where the pledges put on a themed dinner for the members. Our pledges planned it and came up with a theme of Mexican. Pledges, with the help of the officers, cooked up an entire taco bar of food and desserts for the members to feast on. The potluck benefits both members and pledges by giving us an opportunity to socialize and get to know each other better. It also gives pledges the opportunity to get their paddles signed as initiation quickly approaches! Even though potluck occurs every semester it will never get old and as we say you will see members you haven't seen in a while! It constantly shows each pledge class's personality with the changing themes and the corresponding food, decorations, and outfits/costumes.

Members of the Florida Chapter's Fall pledge class took time off from studying during the week to visit the Ronald McDonald House in Gainesville. While at the house the pledges baked and passed out approximately 100 cookies for the residents. The Ronald McDonald House provides temporary housing, basic amenities and support to families with critically ill children seeking treatment at area medical facilities. The program helps to stabilize situations for families and allow them to concentrate all of their time and energy on the treatment and recovery of their children...

Cook Chapter Pledge Project 10/22

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

Cook Chapter took a field trip to the Rutgers Gardens to clean the bamboo forest. Every semester, we head over and shovel and rake mulch into a better path, weed, cut down dead and dangerous branches and help the Gardens in any way they need. This time our clean up also included planting new trees along the street to reduce erosion. Everyone had a great time and we all managed to whistle while we worked (and sing Disney songs as well), making the manual labor much more enjoyable.
