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

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.

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

This t-shirt making social was in preparation for the Ropes Course social planned for the following Sunday. Our treasurer, Charlie Doyle, headed up this social out of his excitement for Sunday's ropes course event. Five members came, and anyone could have attended even if they were not planning on going to the Ropes Course activity. Our members had fun socializing and being creative in designing their t-shirts for the following social but also to show their Alpha Zeta support any day!

At one point there was an epic apples to apples game going on that consisted of 22 people! Overall there were a total of 17 brothers and 6 prospective pledges.

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.

Valentine's Rose Sale Fundraiser

Valentine's Rose Sale Fundraiser

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

Our annual rose sale is our biggest fundraiser! Our fundraiser chair, Gernide Zamor, did an excellent job planning everything with the help of 28 other members! An order form is e-mailed to the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences faculty listserv as well as the Florida chapter's AZ listserv. We order over 700 roses in red, white, and pink colors to fulfill our pre-sales and to sell individually on campus on Valentine's Day. This is a THREE DAY event since it takes time to prep the roses (de-thorn, clip the ends, and separate by color), store in a walk-in cooler, bundle the roses according to pre-sale orders, deliver the orders on campus on Valentine's day, and table on campus selling any remaining roses. This benefits the college by giving an alternative to expensive florists while supporting its own honors fraternity! We greatly look forward to this event every spring!

2-05 Poe Springs Tree Planting Service

2-05 Poe Springs Tree Planting Service

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

The Florida chapter of Alpha Zeta helped plant young trees at one of our many local springs, Poe Springs. This project benefited those that participated by being out in nature and helping the environment by planting trees. The chapter participated because this was yet another perfect way to promote agriculture. Planning included knowing what time to meet up, organizing a carpool, and providing directions to the springs.
