Smores

Smores

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

On February 2, 46 brothers and 18 prospective pledges came out (or should I say went inside) for smores. Because of the cold weather and the abundance of snow, the traditional smore night got moved from outside the Cook Campus Center to inside. Everyone still had a blast even though we had to abandon our little fire pit in favor of fluff and nutella. The event allowed for prospective pledges to meet the brotherhood for the first time. They were able to ask questions and get to see more what the Cook Chapter and Alpha Zeta are all about while enjoying some snacks. Though we all wished it could have been outside, the event was still extremely fun and on the up side we all got to stay warm.

Woodlands Service Project

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

On December 4th, before Formal, 10 brothers carpooled out to Woodlands Wildlife Refuge to help winterize the facility. This included cleaning out the outdoor cages as well as the many of the other holding pens inside the building and the garage. The Refuge has many animals including bear cubs, which can be seen in the outdoor pens though brothers were not allowed to get to close or talk near them in the hopes that they would not get used to people. Despite the cold it was a fun way to give back. These 10 brothers accumulated a total of 36 hours of service for the Refuge. The event was planned by our Service Committee with help from two of our fellow brothers who have volunteered at the Refuge in the past.

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

From December 16th to the 23rd, the Cook Chapter hosted book buy backs partnered with the Great Buy Back in order to raise money for a fellow brother in need. 50 brothers worked shifts at tables located at the Cook Campus Center and Douglas Campus Center from 10am to 6pm each day to buy back the textbooks from students and anyone who wished to sell. They got cash for books they no longer needed and the Cook Chapter received a commission for their work, raising over $600 at the Cook Campus Center alone. The event was planned by our Treasurer and Financial Committee.

The one award that is always looked forward to is the Best Big/ Little Pair. The event was was planned by our fabulous Scribe while all the money for catering and the venue was taken care of by our Treasurer. It was a fun way to end the semester and to relax before the stressful studying for finals started.
