It has become a tradition for the Texas Alpha chapter to hold at least one social event per semester at U Paint It, a place where you can paint your own piece of pottery! Luckily for those of us that are not as artistically gifted, the more simplistic pieces are not difficult to paint. In addition to creating a personal masterpiece, members have the opportunity to get to know one another better. I was fortunate enough to speak with a member that is working on a research project with poultry, and gain some insight into what undergraduate research might be like. The member also provided me with valuable advice for my upcoming research project in the Fall. I think that this is yet another example of one of the many benefits of being a member of Alpha Zeta.
