UF Road Clean Up Service 9/8/11

UF Road Clean Up Service 9/8/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Florida Chapter of Alpha Zeta cleaned up our adopted road. The members that participated in the clean-up did not mind taking time out of their schedule to put the trash back where it belongs and off the street. Usually the road clean-ups are on a weekend morning to avoid the heat of the day but our service chair, Jaclyn Irwin, planned an evening clean-up to help add variation to the times of our events. The members met up on campus to carpool over to the road. Planning involves picking up the supplies ahead of time and bringing it to our AZ road. The road clean-up is always a good excuse to get outside and help the community.

On Friday, September 2nd 4 cook chapter alumni and 17 brothers got together in the Cook Campus Center for Responsible Happy Hour to enjoy each others company after a summer of exploring, jobs, and studying. It was a great way for everyone to have fun, enjoy an awesome free meal, and some responsible drinking for those 21 and over, while enjoying music and meeting the school's new Cook Campus Dean.

UF Chili's Back to School Social 9/2/11

UF Chili's Back to School Social 9/2/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

For the UF Chapter of Alpha Zeta's fall back to school social, our Social Chair Kaylie planned a dinner at Chili's. Six members came despite having a long weekend that people like to head home for and the excitement of the first football game. The dinner allowed members the opportunity to catch up on what happened over summer and share stories of past professors and giving each other tips on how to survive some of the difficult classes we had in the past.  At the restaurant, everyone pays for their own food and drink but has a lot of fun catching up with friends talking about how the first two weeks of school went.

UF Road Clean Up Service 8/28/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The UF Chapter of Alpha Zeta adopted a road in our community about three years ago with the commitment to keep it clean by completing at least six clean up service events each fiscal year. Since we did not hold events this summer four members attended this event in our bright orange safety vests to kick the year off on the right foot. Even though it is considered a service event members enjoyed catching up on summer travels sharing stories and talking about what is ahead for their fall semester. It was a great way for members to get together outside of school and help improve the community one garbage bag at a time.

From May 27th to May 29th, 6 cook chapter brothers took a mini-road trip down to Washington DC to see the sights. They planned it themselves and saw the White House, the Washington Monument, Lincoln's memorial, the World War II Memorial, and other monuments and museums. They also spent some time in Maryland. This was an awesome way for these brothers to kick off the summer and have some fun.

Cornell Chapter Helps Repair Raised Beds

Cornell Chapter Helps Repair Raised Beds

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

On April 30th, 7 members of the Cornell Chapter went to Woodsedge Apartments, a retirement apartment community near campus, to help get their raised bed gardens ready for planting. Two years ago, the community raised money and built around 15 raised beds for the residents to plant. Each resident gets their own bed to keep for the summer. Beds are 24” high instead of the usual 12” so they do not have to bend over as far. We joined many residents and community members and spent the morning doing repairs to their beds. We even found out one of the residents is an AZ Alumni from Michigan State!

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.

This is the second semester the UF chapter of AZ has participated in a paintball social. It was such a big success in the fall we had to do it again in the spring! The social started at 10 a.m., and the $20 covered gear, gun, and 20 pellets. This event was the perfect time to let off some steam and momentarily forget about the stress of oncoming finals! Thanks to our social chair, Dalal Hares, for planning a successful event that benefited the five in attendance by having fun and strengthening friendships!

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.
