S'mores with Cook AZ

S'mores with Cook AZ

Originally posted by Halli M. James

Alpha Zeta Cook Chapter at Rutgers University held a s'mores bonfire on September 5th as a rush event for its fall 2013 Chi class. The event was a great success with a large turnout. We can expect a huge class this semester based on the potential new member turnout! Everyone had a lot of fun and enjoyed making creative s'mores with the addition of Oreos, Reese's, and other candies to the traditional chocolate, graham crackers and marshmallows. Potential new members had the chance to meet some of the brothers and ask questions about the fraternity and the kind of events we hold and participate in.

Seminar 1's purpose was to develop the leadership skills of our new members, allow them to bond and grow as a team, and learn about their personal character.

In order to put on this event time and funds had to be reserved to rent rooms at a camp, activities had to be planned, speakers lined up and informational packets had to be put together for the members.

The Olympics have Come to Cook Chapter

The Olympics have Come to Cook Chapter

Originally posted by Aubrey B. Weibel

On March 10th the Cook Chapter held our Big/Little Olympics. This event is specially designed to strengthen bonds between big and little pairs. We played partner games including dodgeball, ninja, tanks, and a pasta race where participants had to fill an entire cup with macaroni without using their hands. These team building games help bigs and littles get to know each other while having lots of fun. Teams also dress up according to a theme. This year's theme was animals, so we had several very creative team costumes including pigs, cats and bats!

Scavenger Hunt: Chapter Bonding for Relay for Life

Scavenger Hunt: Chapter Bonding for Relay for Life

Originally posted by Jacquelyn E. Neal

At the member meeting on Tuesday, March 19th, the Florida Chapter engaged in some fun chapter bonding in preparation for Relay for Life. The chapter was divided into teams based on their shift for the event, and asked to complete six tasks. Some of the tasks included making up an Alpha Zeta Cheer, serenading a random stranger by singing "Happy Birthday", and  taking group photos at several University of Florida landmarks. The teams had a half an hour to complete the challenge and had tons of fun while getting to know each other. Some of the pledges participated as well and got to know the members. As the second year of the scavenger hunt, hopefully it will become an annual bonding tradition for the chapter!

On February 15, 2013, The Alpha Zeta Cook Chapter welcomed its new potential members.  On this night, the new members learn about the Alpha Zeta history and what the fraternity values.  This is the night they get to really meet the brothers of the fraternity.  It is also when the new members become "littles" when they get their "bigs", the older members of the fraternity.  Once they meet their bigs, the littles are introduced to the rest of their Alpha Zeta family, which includes graduated alumni and other members of the fraternity, even faculty members!  Most families end up doing events over the semester such as hold family dinners dinners or do community service events together...
