Keeping Gainesville Beautiful

The Florida Chapter helps to keep our community beautiful by taking care of our adoptive street in Gainesville. Each semester our chapter holds three to four road clean-ups that allows our brothers to make an impact by picking up trash and recycling. We have already had one road clean-up this semester and look forward to those scheduled for the semester!

Volleyball Concessions

This September, the Florida chapter helped to run two volleyball concession stands! The first was at the game where the Gators played St. John's University. The second, at a good ol' SEC rivalry against Kentucky! The brothers had a blast selling food to fans, while raising money for the upcoming NALC! Working concessions at big events, definitely can teach a group how to work as a team!

Florida Chapter Initiation Ceremony

Florida Chapter Initiation Ceremony

On Monday April 13th, the Florida Chapter initiated 13 pledges into the Fraternity. The ceremony took place at the Straughn IFAS Extension Professional Development Center. We also had 3 honorary initiates this semester, representing Family, Youth and Community Sciences, Entomology and Nematology, and Food Science and Human Nutrition departments. It was a great night filled with delicious food, good conversation, and an excellent speaker. Dr. Tony Adendoro from the Agricultural Education and Communication department talked about leadership, branding, and who you are. He is also the director for the Challenge 2050 project, which is a project headed by CALS to target the challenges in agricultural and natural resource industries by the year 2050. 
We also had awards for our pledge class for most outstanding officer, most outstanding pledge, and best paddle. Congratulations to the winners: Carson Cooper, Katie Bassett, and Madison Goodwin. 
We can't wait to see how these new brothers will continue to foster our founding principles and help our chapter grow. Congratulations PC Spring 2015! Welcome to the brotherhood.

Florida Chapter Big/Little Reveal

Florida Chapter Big/Little Reveal

Last night the Florida Chapter of Alpha Zeta had their Big/Little reveal and potluck hosted by the pledge class. I assigned corresponding costumes to both the Big and their Little. For example, we had Nemo and Dory, Men in Black and an alien, Batman and Robin. It was a fun time for everyone, and the pledges finally get to know who their Big is! I chose their Bigs based on speed dating that we had 2 weeks ago. All of the Bigs had a minute to talk to a pledge before moving on to the next one. Each pledge also filled out a questionnaire. Once littles were assigned, each Big got a plain white bag to decorate for their little and get them a gift to present them at the reveal. I got my little an old AZ tshirt, an AZ keychain, and some hand sanitizer. I also had a contest for "best decorated bag". The winner, Promy Tobassum, hand drew her entire bag!

All in all, it was a great evening filled with food, laughter, and memories to last a lifetime!

Florida Chapter Pledge Class Fishing for Success

Florida Chapter Pledge Class Fishing for Success

 ‚ÄčThis past Saturday, Alpha Zeta pledge class volunteered with the UF Fisheries and Aquatics Faculty to put on the first Fishing for Success event this year. About 100 individuals came out, as families, to fish in local ponds together. The pledges of AZ cut up the hot dogs used as bait, proctored a casting contest, and registered several guests at this event. While there was time, some members even got to practice their own fishing skills. - Olivia Scruggs PC Service Chair
