Cornell Chapter's Summer Weekend

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

Cornell Chapter members (and one NC State alumni!) convened upon Granby, CT for the weekend of July 8-10 for the annual AZ Summer Weekend. Carly Neumann (Chancellor) and her family graciously hosted a group of actives, alumni, and friends from other chapters that peaked at 24 people. We went tubing down a river and through rapids, ate ice-cream at a local dairy bar and creamery, took a tour of a mixed-dairy farm, shared stories around a bonfire, and much more. Each summer, a different active hosts the event and we look forward to doing it again next year!

Cornell Chapter's Garden

Cornell Chapter's Garden

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

This year AZ members looked to hard work and the house garden to combat the rising cost of food and low quality of store-bought products. On the 15'x40' plot, lent to us by alumnus Richard Church, we grew tomatoes, zucchini, summer squash, cucumbers, peppers, carrots and even a few eggplants, root crops, and melons! We employed a variety of planting techniques (including remay, black plastic, and good old stick-it-in-the-ground). A small core of actives and alumni spent the summer combating weeds, mildews, rots, and squash bugs to give us a harvest to be reckoned with. Feeding 26 people five nights a week means picking and choosing whether to buy local, produce food ourselves, or buy from a wholesale distributor. We have chosen to supply as much food as we can through this small garden...

UF Road Clean Up Service 8/28/11

UF Road Clean Up Service 8/28/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The UF Chapter of Alpha Zeta adopted a road in our community about three years ago with the commitment to keep it clean by completing at least six clean up service events each fiscal year. Since we did not hold events this summer four members attended this event in our bright orange safety vests to kick the year off on the right foot. Even though it is considered a service event members enjoyed catching up on summer travels sharing stories and talking about what is ahead for their fall semester. It was a great way for members to get together outside of school and help improve the community one garbage bag at a time.

North Carolina Chapter Candlelight

Originally posted by Madeline N. Dabolt

After our regularly scheduled business meeting we held a candlelight ceremony in honor of our May graduates.  We all sat in a circle passing a candle around sharing our favorite memories of AZ, what Alpha Zeta has meant to us, and wishing those graduating the best of luck.  We ended with the graduating seniors telling their favorite memories and giving us advice as we finish our college careers.  It is always an emotional and meaningful ceremony.

North Carolina Chapter End of the year Potluck

Originally posted by Madeline N. Dabolt

Starting at 6:00 on April 27th before our last meeting of the semester, we all joined in Weaver Shop for a potluck.  Each brother brought a covered dish to share with everyone.  We had everything from cheesy mashed potatoes, homemade macaroni,  and baked ham to Bojangles chicken. There were some great desserts too. There were 45 brothers in attendance, several alumni, and 1 of our advisor's were there.  It was a great time to relax before the beginning of final exams and a great opportunity for fellowship with those graduating in May.

Initiation is a tradition of Alpha Zeta chapters around the country. Each semester each chapter initiates their pledge class. This semester the UF chapter of AZ initiated 21 new members! With pledges, their sponsors, officers, and members, there was around 50 people in attendance! The banquet was one of our best! It was held outdoors at the Haile Plantation Gold and Country Club and planned by our pledge master, Sara Molloy. The singing fraternity of Phi Mu Alpha came and serenaded the graduating girls that were in attendance. Our student advisor, Mark Marcojos, was also recognized for his 10 year service to the UF chapter of AZ.

This is the second semester the UF chapter of AZ has participated in a paintball social. It was such a big success in the fall we had to do it again in the spring! The social started at 10 a.m., and the $20 covered gear, gun, and 20 pellets. This event was the perfect time to let off some steam and momentarily forget about the stress of oncoming finals! Thanks to our social chair, Dalal Hares, for planning a successful event that benefited the five in attendance by having fun and strengthening friendships!

The Cornell Chapter is very involved in intramural sports, particularly volleyball. We participate in both the Fraternity League and this week, our team made it to the second round of play-offs! (Not bad for being co-ed...) We have also participated in 2 volleyball tournaments for charity hosted by other fraternities. This semester we are also participating in intramural soccer. GO AZ!

Lakeside Lovin'- Cornell Chapter Formal

Lakeside Lovin'- Cornell Chapter Formal

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

One event that all members look forward to every semester is our formal. Held at the end of each semester, formal is a way for members to look back on the semester, enjoy each other's company over good food, and most importantly, honor our seniors. This semester, our formal was held at a historic inn in Aurora, NY on the shore of Cayuga Lake. Though the weather was cold and rainy, everyone had a blast! This year we have 15 seniors graduating. Each was presented with a mug and actives reminisced on their time in Alpha Zeta. They will all be missed!

11 New Members Initiated!

11 New Members Initiated!

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

A couple weeks ago, 11 new members were initiated into the Cornell Chapter, The weekend which consists of bonding activities, community service, and teaching of chapter traditions like songs, attracts alumni and is a weekend everyone looks forward to. The weekend concludes a 9 week long new member education process where new members participate in weekly events to learn Cornell, Alpha Zeta, and Chapter history and traditions. This initiation was unique for us because chapter initiation included a National Initiation (separate because we are a social fraternity also) on Saturday after where 3 Associate members were initiated in addition to new members.
