The first rush event of the Cook Chapter!
Set outside the Cook Campus Center, brothers of AZ mingled with potential pledges of the Fall 2011 semester.  S'mores was a hit!  Who doesn't enjoy some toasty marshmallows, melted chocolate, all smushed together between two glistening sheets of graham crackers?

UF Spring '11 Pledge Class Initiation 4-19-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

Initiation is a tradition of Alpha Zeta chapters around the country. Each semester each chapter initiates their pledge class. This semester the UF chapter of AZ initiated 21 new members! With pledges, their sponsors, officers, and members, there was around 50 people in attendance! The banquet was one of our best! It was held outdoors at the Haile Plantation Gold and Country Club and planned by our pledge master, Sara Molloy. The singing fraternity of Phi Mu Alpha came and serenaded the graduating girls that were in attendance. Our student advisor, Mark Marcojos, was also recognized for his 10 year service to the UF chapter of AZ.

Cornell Chapter Hosts Faculty Dinner

Cornell Chapter Hosts Faculty Dinner

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

One event our chapter really enjoys hosting is a faculty dinner every spring. Each member invites 1-2 faculty on campus from all disciplines to come enjoy a formal dinner with us for the evening. This year we had around 30 faculty attend dinner at our house, in addition to almost all members, one of the highest numbers ever! This dinner gives us the opportunity to tell faculty about who we are and what we do, as well as chat with our professors outside of class. During dessert, members from our chapter speak about things they have done over the past year. This year, we had a member discuss his involvement with the student run organic farm, and another member talk about her archeological dig in Mongolia.

11 New Members Initiated!

11 New Members Initiated!

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

A couple weeks ago, 11 new members were initiated into the Cornell Chapter, The weekend which consists of bonding activities, community service, and teaching of chapter traditions like songs, attracts alumni and is a weekend everyone looks forward to. The weekend concludes a 9 week long new member education process where new members participate in weekly events to learn Cornell, Alpha Zeta, and Chapter history and traditions. This initiation was unique for us because chapter initiation included a National Initiation (separate because we are a social fraternity also) on Saturday after where 3 Associate members were initiated in addition to new members.
