UF vs. Alabama Football Game Social 10/1/11

Originally posted by Claire D. Page

Another gorgeous day in Gainesville turned into a chilly night at a Gator game. Members of the Florida Chapter met up earlier in the week to get football tickets together for the game against the University of Alabama. Everyone one was in the seats and ready for the 8 p.m. kick off. The stadium was the loudest it has ever been even though the Gators lost members stayed until the very last second. The Florida Chapter even visited with some fans during halftime taking a picture with a gator and die-hard fans they found in the stands. Everyone enjoyed the game and the opportunity to hang out and be with friends even if it was a tad colder for us Florida members because "in all kind of weather we'll all stick together for F-L-O-R-I-D-A!”

UF Intramural Indoor Soccer Game 9/28/11

UF Intramural Indoor Soccer Game 9/28/11

Our intramural indoor soccer team for the Fall semester had their second game of our season. Though we may not have a perfect record members enjoy coming out other week on Wednesday for our games. Luckily for the ladies, we had extra people for substitutions but our three hard working men stuck it out the whole game. We had some new players this week that were just learning the rules of the game and they seemed to be the stars of the field. The game was a tough game but our members stuck through it and gave it their all. Even though we lost our members had a blast and can't wait for the next game.

To get our word out about our information sessions, we set up our boards on the brickyard September 7th and 8th. Brothers stood at the boards in between classes so that if a student had questions about Alpha Zeta they could answer them. We had several students who were interested. This was a good time for the brotherhood to interact with other students and each other.
