Middle School Conference about Agriculture

Middle School Conference about Agriculture

Originally posted by Jacqueline Armstrong

On November 4th, a group of six Alpha Zeta members, whose labor is to promote agriculture through education to the community, offered a conference at a middle school in Aguada, Puerto Rico. It was attended by thirty-three children of the seventh, eighth, and ninth grade. During the discussion we talked about what agriculture means to them, explained its importance to all of us, and its current situation. They also had the opportunity to learn about the different departments that the College of Agricultural Sciences at Mayaguez Campus has and to see and ask questions about different pictures taken in the laboratories, of the common practices carried out in each one. They also learned about several associations dedicated to agriculture and the work we do as members of Alpha Zeta.

Woodlands Service Project

Originally posted by Selina A. Ruzi

On December 4th, before Formal, 10 brothers carpooled out to Woodlands Wildlife Refuge to help winterize the facility. This included cleaning out the outdoor cages as well as the many of the other holding pens inside the building and the garage. The Refuge has many animals including bear cubs, which can be seen in the outdoor pens though brothers were not allowed to get to close or talk near them in the hopes that they would not get used to people. Despite the cold it was a fun way to give back. These 10 brothers accumulated a total of 36 hours of service for the Refuge. The event was planned by our Service Committee with help from two of our fellow brothers who have volunteered at the Refuge in the past.

From December 16th to the 23rd, the Cook Chapter hosted book buy backs partnered with the Great Buy Back in order to raise money for a fellow brother in need. 50 brothers worked shifts at tables located at the Cook Campus Center and Douglas Campus Center from 10am to 6pm each day to buy back the textbooks from students and anyone who wished to sell. They got cash for books they no longer needed and the Cook Chapter received a commission for their work, raising over $600 at the Cook Campus Center alone. The event was planned by our Treasurer and Financial Committee.

On December 4th, 40 brothers and guests gathered at the Douglas Campus Center for an evening of food, conversation, and dancing. There was a DJ, buffet style dinner and dessert, and lots of dancing. Brother awards were also given out by our wonderful Chronicler. Some of the awards included hardest working brother (both male and female), while others were funnier in nature and included Fraternity Clown. The one award that is always looked forward to is the Best Big/ Little Pair. The event was was planned by our fabulous Scribe while all the money for catering and the venue was taken care of by our Treasurer. It was a fun way to end the semester and to relax before the stressful studying for finals started.

On October 1st, over 80 brothers and alumni gathered, prepared, and participated in the first ritual that all new members of Cook Chapter must go through. The night not only provided a great opportunity for brothers to catch up with alumni, but also for brothers and alumni to meet the prospective Pi class and to welcome them into the pledging process. These prospective pledges met their bigs for the first time and were welcomed by their family members who were to help and guide them through the pledging process in the hopes of them becoming brothers at initiation.
