UF White Elephant Gift Exchange Social 11/29/11

UF White Elephant Gift Exchange Social 11/29/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

At our last meeting of the fall semester members of the Florida Chapter participated in a White Elephant gift exchange. The rules are pretty simple: everyone brings a wrapped gift valued at $5-$10. We number slips of paper 1-however many people we have, and each person takes a number from a hat. Whoever gets #1 goes to the front and unwraps a gift. Number 2 may unwrap their own gift or steal the gift of number 1. We continue until everyone has a gift! A gift may be stolen only 3 times before it is frozen, and if your gift is stolen, you unwrap another! But remember there are no direct steal backs! Everyone that participates has a lot of fun and goes home with a unique present that one of their fellow members picked out for the holiday season.

UF Fall Initiation 11/28/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter had the amazing opportunity to initiate 5 new members into our chapter. The night was a rainy and chilly night but that would not stop our excitement or gratitude to the members, staff, and initiates that came out. The ceremony was a traditional set up allowing the initiates an inside into what we were founded on and what we strive towards as an organization. After the ceremony we joined in congratulating the newest members of our chapter with dinner where they sat with their sponsors, our advisors, and honored guest Dr. Robert McCleery....

Members of the Florida Chapter went to raise money at the Gelato Company where 10% of the sales made from 6-8 p.m. went to help fund our chapter’s events and members. Members came out to meet up with each other for a nice dinner and dessert. The fundraiser gave the chapter an opportunity to offset some of the costs associated with our events over the course of the year. Members chowed down on gelato of all kinds while enjoying the company of other members.

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.

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.
