The Fisher House program is a unique private-public partnership that supports America’s military in their time of need. The program recognizes the special sacrifices of our men and women in uniform as well as the hardships of military service by meeting a humanitarian need beyond that normally provided by both the Departments of Defense and the Veterans Administration...

Members enjoyed pizza of all kinds while embracing in the company of other members. The fundraiser gave us the opportunity to help offset the costs of events planned by our chapter during the year.

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter came together for another night of fun and games for our intramural soccer game. Students enjoyed our two-week break but looked forward to see who our next opponent was for the night. The game was one of the most successful games we have had yet. The team had enough members to play and give everyone a break if they needed a substitution. The best part of the night had to be our rowdy fans cheering us on during a real close game!...

The road clean-up was planned for an evening to avoid the heat of the day...

After our pledge event last week (10/20) where pledges were quizzed on information learned thus far in the pledge process, our pledges were surprised by receiving their Big Brother and Big Sister. Each pledge received a gift related to their particular lineage and photos of each pledge with their bigs were taken. Following the event was a night of good, fun fellowship!

Cornell Greek Weekend

Cornell Greek Weekend

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

As some of you may have heard, the president of Cornell University is really cracking down on the Greek system this year and as a result, the Greek system has had to be creative in the way different events are run, particularly when regarding recruitment. This semester, the Interfraternity Council (IFC) planned a Greek Preview Weekend where all fraternities had an open house event on Friday evening (10/14) and a smoker on Saturday (10/15) where freshman had the opportunity to visit houses and meet active brothers. Friday evening, our chapter planning a carnival which unfortunately had to be moved inside due to weather. Saturday we hosted a smoker that was sports themed. Unfortunately the events were not as well attended as we had hoped due to bad weather, but the actives who participated had a great time!

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...
