UF Pair Party Social 3-25-11

UF Pair Party Social 3-25-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

Every semester with our new pledge class the pledge master matches up each pledge (the "little") with a member (the "big"). This is our second year theming it as a "pair party." This year our pledge master, Sara Molloy, had the bigs and littles dress in pairs such as Charlie Brown and Snoopy, an Easter bunny and an Easter egg, Batman and Robin, and many more! When pledges and members arrived at the event they had to find their pair/match thus revealing their big or little. Any member could attend, even if they did not have a little. Everyone looks forward to initiating a new pledge class each semester and this is just one of the many events that forms a bond for future UF Alpha Zeta members!

UF TCBY Fundraiser 3-23-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

Our fundraising chair, Gernide Zamor, planned a fundraiser at our local TCBY (frozen yogurt/ice cream). UF AZ will receive a percentage of all purchases from nine to 10p.m. Planning involved scheduling a time with TCBY and letting the members know when and where to go. During the event attendance is taken. Once TCBY calculates how much AZ earned they will contact Gernide. AZ had 27 in attendance. We always enjoy having events that involve socializing and food, especially ice cream!

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.

UF Pledge Spring '11 Keep Alachua County Beautiful's Great American Cleanup Service 3-19-11

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

The Spring 2011 pledge class members cleaned up a bike trail. Corinne Oliphant is the spring '11 pledge class service chair. The six in attendance picked up all the trash that was on the ground or in the bushes along the trail. This service event benefited the community and the people that used this bike trail. The chapter benefited by gaining the knowledge that keeping a community clean and livable takes a lot of time and effort.

Empty Bowls is an organization that helps feed the homeless. Our service chair, Kaitlyn Summerfield, planned for the UF chapter of AZ to go to the Arts and Crafts Center in our student union to help this organization and our community while exercising our creativity in painting the ceramic pieces at the same time! The 16 that attended had a great time picking out paint colors and creating their unique designs on the bowls and cups! We are honored to help Empty Bowls be an encouraging resource the hungry and homeless in our community.

New Member Retreat

New Member Retreat

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

On February 26th, 21 pledges, the Censor and the Sergeant in Arms made their way out to the Meadows to hold the New Member Retreat. There the pledges got to hang out with their mommy and daddy while coloring and going over the history of Alpha Zeta. They were soon joined by our amazing Chancellor and Pledge Committee who brought with them a variety of different types of pizza and soda for lunch. Pledge Committee then played "Who's story is it?" with the pledges, which involved the pledges anonymously writing down an embarrassing or funny story that they were ok with sharing on a piece of paper. Then the Chair of Pledge Committee read out loud the story and everyone had to guess whose story it was. Both the Censor and the Sergeant in Arms also played. Once the game was over Scholarship Committee arrived and met with the pledges individually to help them write their debate papers, which is one of the requirements for pledging the Cook Chapter of Alpha Zeta.

On February 19th, 49 brothers, 25 alumni, and 21 pledges made their way out to what is one of the most important nights of every semester, New Member Ritual Night. This was held at the Meadows and is a joyous occasion in which brothers get to meet up with alumni who graduated from as little as the semester before to much much longer ago...

Applebees!

Applebees!

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

After the pledge meeting on February 16th, 33 brothers and 10 pledges carpooled out to the Applebees off of Ryders lane. There everyone enjoyed the half priced appetizers and some great conversation while getting to know everyone around you. This even is particularly important for the brothers who want to be bigs since it is the last mingling even before the New Member Ritual Night. The semesterly tradition of going to Applebees has been the reason for many of the big/ little pairings over the past couple of semesters.

Movie Night With the Pledges

Movie Night With the Pledges

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

On February 10th, 2 pledges, 2 alumni, and 14 brothers made their way to one of the some of the brothers' off campus house to watch a Happy Gilmore. This was a fun, relaxing way to spend a Thursday night instead of doing homework and allowed for the pledges and brothers to get to know each other better. It also allowed for the brothers to get to hang out with some of the alumni that we all dearly miss and wish could make it back to more of our chapter events.
