Our chapter began the recruiting season, on January 17, 2012, with and ice cream social at OSU's agricultural living-learning community, Norton House. Here, around 15 prospective members gathered with 5 current AZP members to eat some ice cream and learn about our great honorary. Prospective students were invited to join over winter break; we sent letters to their parents and a copy of all the information was sent via email to the students in an effort to be more environmentally friendly, rather than sending the normal two hard copies. To prepare for the event, a new PowerPoint was created to urge these students to join AZP. We purchased ice cream and toppings, and they were a hit with our prospective members! After the presentation, we held a question-answer session with the panel of current members that attended. The event was a great success!
