1-21 Gators Dockside Back to School Social

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

For our fall back to school social, our social chair, Dalal Hares, planned a dinner at Gators Dockside. It went so well we had another one to welcome the start of spring semester! Planning involed getting a rough estimate of the number of members that would attend in order to give the restaurant a notice about a large party coming for dinner. At the restaurant, everyone pays for their own food and drink but has a lot of fun catching up with friends discussing what we did over holiday break!

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.

This activity served as a nice way for the pledges to enjoy the afternoon while bonding with one another and getting to know their future fraternity brothers.

Florida Fall '10 pledge Stuff the Bus Service 11-06-10

Originally posted by Ashleigh Woodruff

The Fall 2010 Pledge Class contributed to the project as a means of service to our Gainesville community. Members of the pledge class met up to bring canned goods and various other items to a central location (bus) that was destined for the underserved population in Gainesville. This counted as one of the pledge's two required service events and helped bring the future brothers closer together as well as helped individuals in our community who are in need.
