Cook Chapter Co-sponsors Responsible Happy Hour

Cook Chapter Co-sponsors Responsible Happy Hour

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

On February 4th, the Cook Chapter co-sponsored Responsible Happy Hour with SEBS Governing Council. The event included discounted drinks for those over 21, free food, music, and provided a nice time to socialize and catch up with friends, the rest of the brotherhood, alumni, and prospective pledges. There was also a slide show showcasing many pictures of Cook Chapter brothers at many of our past events so that prospective pledges could see more what we were all about. There were 26 brothers present and 5 alumni, not to mention a number of prospective pledges. Our faculty adviser, George Clark, was also present.

On February 3rd, the Cook Chapter hosted a Game Night for all the prospective pledges and the brotherhood on the second floor of the Cook Campus Center. The night was dedicated to getting to know the prospective pledges and allowing them to get to know the brotherhood. Among the games played there was ping pong, foosball, pool, and apples to apples. 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.

Roundtable Inverviews

Originally posted by Lauren K. Mabry

On Sunday Feb 6th, the brothers of the North Carolina Chapter of Alpha Zeta met to interview our potential candidates.  We all met at Weaver labs at 11am in business professional dress and brought breakfast or brunch items to share.  We started the day by welcoming the potential candidates, showing them a slide show presentation of some of our activities, and singing the AZ friendship song.  These interviews gave us an opportunity to get to know these talented individuals and a time for them to ask us questions.  We interviewed twenty seven potential candidates and extended 25 bids! We are very excited about this potentially large candidate class and can't wait for them to become brothers of our fraternity.

1-29 Road Clean-Up Service

1-29 Road Clean-Up Service

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

The Florida chapter of Alpha Zeta adopted a road several years ago and in order to keep this road we have to do a certain number of road clean-ups within a year's time. Of course, we don't mind and enjoy making sure trash gets put where it belongs! We usually do our road clean-ups on Saturday mornings, so our service chair, Kaitlyn Summerfield, plans for those attending to meet in a parking lot on campus and carpool over. Planning involves pickin up the supplies ahead of time and bringing it to our AZ road. This is always a great way to get outside and socialize while cleaning our environment!

UF AZ White Elephant Social

UF AZ White Elephant Social

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

This is the second year we have turned our last fall semester meeting into a White Elephant gift exchange. The rules are pretty simple: everyone brings a wrapped gift valued at $5-$10. We number slips of paper 1-however many people we have, and each person takes a number from a hat. Whoever gets #1 goes to the front and unwraps a gift. Number 2 may unwrap his own gift or steal the gift of number 1. We continue until everyone has a gift! A gift may be stolen only 3 times, and if your gift is stolen, you unwrap another! The 22 members that participated had a lot of fun and went home with a unique present.
