UF Chapter

The Florida Chapter of Alpha Zeta is the largest in the nation. Our chapter is involved in campus events as well as service, social, and fundraising opportunities. Each fall and spring semester, students from the top 40% of the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences are invited to join. Only students with the highest character and leadership skills will be inducted into Alpha Zeta.


Pledging is an eight-week process that occurs during the fall and spring semesters and includes weekly pledge meetings, service and social events, and initiation. Throughout the process the pledge class will plan events and make a paddle to have signed by current members and alumni at the University of Florida.
