Cornell Chapter Sibling Olympics

Cornell Chapter Sibling Olympics

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

As part of our new member education process, the pledges planned a sibling olympics event for the active members on 10/15. The event was held in the afternoon and included a pumpkin carving contest and a scarecrow building contest (pictured), among other events. This is the second semester we've done this event and is something we hope to continue it in the future as it is a great way to bring both active members and new members together in a fun setting.

Cornell Chapter Hosts Semesterly Ag Day

Cornell Chapter Hosts Semesterly Ag Day

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

Every semester the Cornell Chapter hosts "Ag Day" on the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Quad. Our event this semester was held on 10/14. While Cornell may be the land grant university in our state, sadly many students do not even know that Cornell still has agricultural departments. We hold this event to both educate the Cornell Community, as well as to raise money for Tompkins County 4-H. Our event this semester was run as it has been in the past, with a fistulated cow for cow bingo, food, tractors, sheep, and campus agricultural organizations and clubs...

UF 34th St. Wall Painting Social 10/6/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter met up on Thursday night at 8 p.m. to take part in a tradition at the University of Florida. Located on 34th St. in Gainesville is a wall that lines the road where students all over the city come and paint advertisements, pictures, and even proposals. We decided to go with an Alpha Zeta theme painting a huge A and Z on the wall and each of the members who attended wrote their own name. In our group there were some more talented graffiti artists than others, however our finished product is one to challenge some of the best artists. The wall gave us the opportunity to show our creative side and have fun outside with each other away from the midterm grind.

Cornell Campus Scavenger Hunt

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

One of our new member events is a campus scavenger hunt to learn about how AZ at Cornell has impacted the campus, mostly in the Ag School. It was held this semester on 9/27. New members got clues to different buildings on campus that are important to AZ and met actives at each building to hear how it was important. At one stop, two alumni surprised the new members with hot chocolate. The night concluded on the Arts Quad by the statue of our college's founder.
