UF Pledge Class Orange and Blue Social 4/7/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter's pledge class met up with members and tons of other students and alumni from UF in a spring football tradition, the Orange and Blue game. The game is a scrimmage of the football team's offensive and defensive lines at the end of their spring practice session. They decided to go and take part in another tradition as students. In the group there were some crazy orange and blue covered fans ready to cheer on their team as they watched what was to become the team for fall...

NC Flag Football

NC Flag Football

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

Every fall semester, the North Carolina Chapter forms a co-ed intramural flag football team to play against other organizations on campus. This year, we played two games on Tuesday September 4th and Tuesday September 11th at 7:30. In order to register with Student Recreation, at least four females and four males had to sign up to participate about a week before the first game. Alpha Zeta won the first game against Alpha Omega in a 10-0 shutout. The second game was very close, but the team did not pull it out.  Each game lasted about an hour. Playing football is a great way for brothers to have fun, relieve stress, and provides a break from studying. Brothers can also work on their teamwork and communication skills. The NC chapter also participates in other sports such as soccer and volleyball.

Cook Chapter at Cook Community Day

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

On the afternoon of Thursday September 13th, the brothers of Alpha Zeta Cook Chapter participated in Cook Community Day. Brothers wore their letters proudly and the table had posters promoting Alpha Zeta’s core values of service, leadership, scholarship, etc. They spoke with students who stopped by, individually as well as in small groups, about the fraternity and encouraged them to attend future events. With the attraction of beautiful weather, free food, and raffles, the event brought more than 1,000 students and hosted over two dozen clubs and organizations.

Ice Cream for Recruitment

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

On Tuesday September 11th, around 20 prospective new members joined the brothers of Alpha Zeta Cook Chapter to find out more about the fraternity and mingle while enjoying ice cream. It was a casual gathering, allowing prospective members to meet the brothers and speak with them one-on-one in an informal and fun setting. Everyone enjoyed themselves, ate some ice cream and made new friends. We look forward to seeing the potential new members at future events.

Everyone in the North Carolina Chapter may not be thrilled about the start of classes, however they could not wait to see their fellow AZ brothers.

NC Canoe Trip

Originally posted by Ashley J. Kirby

Every summer the North Carolina Chapter travels to Jefferson, NC for a relaxing canoe trip. On Wednesday, May 16th, the group took care of some last minute shopping and traveled to the campsite. Thursday we canoed ten miles down the river for about five hours. We had a shorter trip of about seven miles in three hours on Friday. Seven brothers camped for two nights and canoed two days while only having to pay about $45. Some brothers enjoyed learning to kayak for the first time. Others enjoyed fishing and watching wildlife in their canoe. The New River was fairly calm with rapids up to level two...

UF Archery Lesson by Orange and Blue Archery Club 2/19/12

UF Archery Lesson by Orange and Blue Archery Club 2/19/12

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

The Orange and Blue Archery Club hosted Alpha Zeta for an archery lesson before their club practice. A team member Lauren taught the group the proper techniques of how to hold a bow and the arrow and equipment for shooting arrows. There was a great turnout for Alpha Zeta and all of the members had a great time! After overcoming the difficulty of the wind, members were able to shoot at foam targets, and several members came close while others did in fact hit the bulls eye. Members were able to learn about the challenges of tournament play and the different types of bows and arrows required for the sport. It was a great experience to join up with another UF club and a fun day outdoors!

The Florida Chapter started its Spring intramurals in beach volleyball with a victory! Members will meet every Sunday at the outdoor volleyball courts for the games this season. With the temperatures running in the 40s on the night of our first game, the team members tried very hard to stay warm (we are from Florida remember)! We won the first set 21-15 and dominated again in the second set, winning 21-17. Samantha Sites led with some great serving and Ana Zegarra had a few nice dives!...

This project involved making and selling grilled cheese sandwiches to students. All funds raised, approximately $400, were donated to the Lukemia & Lymphoma Society. This project was completed in conjunction with FarmHouse Fraternity - Alpha Tau Zeta chapter at Ohio State as they provided the facilities to cook and we provided the necessary supplies (bread, butter, cheese). This is one of many philanthropy events our chapter completes each year. It helps to raise awareness for lukemia and lymphoma as well as helping efforts to find a cure...

AZP Recruitment Ice Cream Social / Meeting

Originally posted by Katilyn D. Stevens

Our third recruitment event was an information session in conjunction with a meeting. We ordered pizza and also had the rest of the ice cream and toppings from the previous recruitment sessions. I gave a PowerPoint presentation before the meeting and opened the floor to questions from the prospective members. This was a really great event because there was a large group of current members there to socialize with the prospectives. After the presentation and eating, we continued with our regularly scheduled meeting so they could see what a typical week in AZP would be like -- planning community service events, reviewing socials, and brainstorming for fundraisers...
