Cornell Greek Weekend

Cornell Greek Weekend

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

As some of you may have heard, the president of Cornell University is really cracking down on the Greek system this year and as a result, the Greek system has had to be creative in the way different events are run, particularly when regarding recruitment. This semester, the Interfraternity Council (IFC) planned a Greek Preview Weekend where all fraternities had an open house event on Friday evening (10/14) and a smoker on Saturday (10/15) where freshman had the opportunity to visit houses and meet active brothers. Friday evening, our chapter planning a carnival which unfortunately had to be moved inside due to weather. Saturday we hosted a smoker that was sports themed. Unfortunately the events were not as well attended as we had hoped due to bad weather, but the actives who participated had a great time!

Cornell Chapter Hosts Semesterly Ag Day

Cornell Chapter Hosts Semesterly Ag Day

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

Every semester the Cornell Chapter hosts "Ag Day" on the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Quad. Our event this semester was held on 10/14. While Cornell may be the land grant university in our state, sadly many students do not even know that Cornell still has agricultural departments. We hold this event to both educate the Cornell Community, as well as to raise money for Tompkins County 4-H. Our event this semester was run as it has been in the past, with a fistulated cow for cow bingo, food, tractors, sheep, and campus agricultural organizations and clubs...

As a kickoff to homecoming week at the University of Illinois, the Student Alumni Ambassadors organize a massive, campus wide service project called iHelp. This event, which had close to 2000 participants, is a way for the members of the UIUC campus to give back to the community and form a closer bond. This is the first year that the Alpha Zeta Morrow Chapter participated and we had a great turn out. 9 brothers volunteered for this event and our project was to help construct a high tunnel and winterize the plots at the Student Sustainable Farm...

UF 34th St. Wall Painting Social 10/6/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Members of the Florida Chapter met up on Thursday night at 8 p.m. to take part in a tradition at the University of Florida. Located on 34th St. in Gainesville is a wall that lines the road where students all over the city come and paint advertisements, pictures, and even proposals. We decided to go with an Alpha Zeta theme painting a huge A and Z on the wall and each of the members who attended wrote their own name. In our group there were some more talented graffiti artists than others, however our finished product is one to challenge some of the best artists. The wall gave us the opportunity to show our creative side and have fun outside with each other away from the midterm grind.

Cornell Chapter Habitat for Humanity Build Day

This past Saturday (10/1), the Cornell Chapter participated in a Habitat for Humanity build day in a local community. Seven actives, 2 alumni, and 1 pledge attended. They worked hard all morning to put drywall in the basement and paneling in the ceiling. It was a great way to put our skills to work for the community.

Lost in a Maze of Maize

Lost in a Maze of Maize

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

This past Friday, (9/30), the Cornell Chapter attended a corn maze with two other campus organizations. Collegiate FFA and Hortus Forum (the undergraduate horticulture club) attended with us. Everyone met at the AZ House and headed to the maze together. Many members of AZ are a part of the other organizations and we thought it would be a great way to mingle with other "aggies". Around 15 actives attended, 1 alumni, and 3 pledges, along with many others from the other organizations. Everyone had a great time despite the mud and we really look forward to organizing events like this with other agricultural organizations in the future!

Cornell Campus Scavenger Hunt

Cornell Campus Scavenger Hunt

Originally posted by Emmaline A. Long

One of our new member events is a campus scavenger hunt to learn about how AZ at Cornell has impacted the campus, mostly in the Ag School. It was held this semester on 9/27. New members got clues to different buildings on campus that are important to AZ and met actives at each building to hear how it was important. At one stop, two alumni surprised the new members with hot chocolate. The night concluded on the Arts Quad by the statue of our college's founder.
