Bump, Set, Spike- GO AZ!

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

The Cornell Chapter is very involved in intramural sports, particularly volleyball. We participate in both the Fraternity League and this week, our team made it to the second round of play-offs! (Not bad for being co-ed...) We have also participated in 2 volleyball tournaments for charity hosted by other fraternities. This semester we are also participating in intramural soccer. GO AZ!

Greenhouse Cleanup

Greenhouse Cleanup

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

As anyone in agriculture knows, it is hard work. One of the actives in our chapter owns a greenhouse, and periodically throughout the semester, actives have been travelling an hour to her house to assist her family in getting the greenhouse ready for the current growing season. The greenhouse suffered some damage after a hard winter, so they can use all the help AZ can offer! Members also visited the greenhouses last fall to help clean up after the season was finished. Service to fellow brothers and sisters is service of the best kind!

UF Pledge Spring '11 Puppy Hill Farm Rescue at Petsmart Service 3-27-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

This event was planned by Corinne Oliphant, the pledge class service chair. At Petsmart the Puppy Hill Farm Animal Rescue group brings dogs and cats that are available for adoption. The 11 in attendance brought the animals in after they walked them. Pledges and members were told to talk to the customers and try to persuade them to adopt a pet. Before finishing the service event, the dogs were walked again. It was a great time spent with the animals and advocating for their adoption!

UF Two Tails Ranch Service 4-10-11

UF Two Tails Ranch Service 4-10-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

This service event was planned by our spring semester pledge class but was opened to all members as a service event requirement. Two Tails Ranch is a "training, medical, breeding and retirement facility for hundreds of elephants and exotic felines for over 20 years." They are revamping their main barn and some back pens so we helped with general maintenance and landscaping. This was truly an incredible experience for the 10 members and several pledges that were able to attend to be able to interact with elephants and will hopefully be a service project the UF chapter of AZ will carry on in the following years.

UF Road Clean Up Service 4-07-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

The UF chapter of AZ adopted a road a few years ago. Requirements to keep this road include at least six clean-ups per year. Since we do not hold events over the summer this comes to three road clean ups per semester. Nine members attended this clean up. This is a really great way to not only socialize together outdoors but help the environment and community by making sure all the trash is picked up and out of harm's way!

Habitat for Humanity's annual campus race! The route circles some of the busiest parts of campus, passing by the O'Connell Center, the Swamp, Turlington Plaza, and the Reitz Union.

Our nine members that participated benefited by getting good exercise, socializing, and helping to support Alachua Habitat for Humanity who's goal is to provide safe, decent, affordable homes for families in need.

UF Ropes Course 3-20-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

Our AZ Chancellor, Kelin Maciejewski, headed up a bonding activity that took place at UF's Lake Wauburg Ropes Course. Planning included reserving the course months in advance and having the 14 members attended sign paperwork ahead of time. It started with "get to know you warm-up activities." Then there was 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. Next everyone had to get over a 12 foot high wall with no ropes and just people trying to push/pull people over the wall. Last, people had the chance to climb a 45 foot high alpine tower with various obstacles including nets, hanging logs, wobbly platforms, ladders, and rocks. Everyone had a blast. It was a ton of fun and it made a lot of people feel better connected as a group.
